Everyone's MYBs look so great!  Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is the send out date - please make sure to send by tomorrow or send me a PM letting me know that you are sending late (so I at least know you are still alive hehe).

I got my MYB from kjlutz yesterday and its awesome!

here's what was in it
-A Monster Project traveling bag for my knitting on the go
-matching ipod cozy
-A knitted Zero from Nightmare Before Christmas
- Two hair clips
-organic dark hot chocolate (which I was actually looking for not to long ago!)
-Sour Patch kids which um...may or may not have been eaten already by me my sister.
-jolly ranchers who now miss the sour patch kids
-Kool aid and directions to try mt hand are hand dying yarn!
-PotC stitckers
-a little heart shaped box carved out of stone (it's hiding behind the sour patch kids) in India as part of the 10,000 villiages project. It's a really awesome project, google it.

The Yarn is a lovely soft pink ball of Paton's Divine. And she sent my two patternsto choose from! Alette Wings from knitty, and coronet also from knitty. I'll be making the wings. kjlutz even sent me some elastic so I wouldn't ahve to knit the cords (how did she know I HATE knitting icord??)

here's some close ups of the things she made:

That piece of paper on the monster bag is actually note from him apologizing for eating my MYB. Apparently he got very hungry during his trip. It's ok, I forgave him since he's just so damn cute lol

I craft so I can avoid reality.....

I received from aeronberry today!  I got totally spoiled!  I have loads of pics, so get ready...

First the yarn balls - wow! That was a lot of yarn!  The one on the right is actually purple and really soft.  The material has knitting and crochet images on it.

Skull project bag - I adore this!!!  My yarn balls will not roll all over the living room now! Cheesy  Also some skull stitch markers - so cute! Some skull and bead earrings and a skull pencil.

Close up of stitch markers and earrings.

Crocheted critters: Hedwig, Crookshanks, Scabbers, Arnold and Trevor.  How cute are they?!

4 dolled up clothespin for holding open pattern books and etc (very smart of you!), Cap'n Jack postits, skull pin, buck/Prongs patronus pendant and a tissue holder with colorful frogs and tissue in it (for crying over 'frogging' patterns  Grin)

Eyes for amigurumi, a spool knitting kit, datebook for swaps and a CD of non-copyright patterns!

Some tools: a Harry Potter pen for marking patterns, 2 crochet hooks (one w/wooden handle which I already love) and some yarn needles:

The cutest crocheted box with a skull button:

Box opened:

There was one other thing that I didn't get in the pics - a double wrap skull bracelet.  Katelyn is wearing it right now. Cheesy

Thank you so much, aeronberry!  This was a great package!

Edited to add:  I forgot to say what patterns I got! Roll Eyes  One is a pattern for armwarmers - aeronberry saw that I wist a lot of those.hee hee  The purple is for an amigurumi octopus - I've never done anything like that either.  I just finished my first official wearable object and wore it tonight. Cheesy

I got my MYB from TOAJ today after some problems with the delivery person not bothering to ring the doorbell before leaving with my package. Here it is when I got it home.

And after taking it out of the box. I love the dark blue through the yarn and TOAJ was wonderful and sent me the dpn's and the cable needle I'll need for the hat she picked out for me. I've never tried cables so this should be a good intro to them and give me something warm to wear.

I'm going to try to knit it out... at least for a while. DBF says he won't let me tear into it so at least I've got help from that front.

I have been so utterly spoilt that there just isn't room here to post photos of everything!

That's everything and there's better photos of everything as it's unravelled here...



Can you believe those little guys who were waiting for me in the middle?!
