I got so much stuff from Ptarmic Wumpus! First, the wrapped shot:
I was good and didn't open until Dec. 23, when I was headed out of town and couldn't wait anymore. I had asked for hand-dyed yarn, and my favorite colors are blues and greens. Ptarmic Wumpus made sure I don't have an excuse to buy yarn for ages, with green cotton yarn (worsted weight, and has a little blue mixed in):
Also blue and green wool yarn, possibly sport weight:
And finally, blue and green rayon boucle:
It's hard to photograph because it's so shiny, but the color is much more vibrant in person.
And everything was packed in a project bag/basket made of a felted sweater! You can see the lovely card of a snowy scene in Paris, which reminds me of Central Park.
It's so clever and the deep red is a great contrast with all the blues and greens. I'm going to have to watch out so the cat doesn't steal it and make it her bed. Here you can see some of the texture of the sweater:
Thank you so much Ptarmic Wumpus, and I can't wait to wind all of this up and see all the colors in detail.
