Elizabeth and she seemed to really be worried about whether or not I was going to loooove the stuff but really, I ADORE it all. Seriously. I know that I didn't have the best knitting content on my blog but that's mostly because honestly I haven't been doing all that much knitting.
What you see in the pic- 2 skeins of Koigu (yum), 2 skeins of malabrigo (SP: you wrote that you weren't sure it was 'my thing' but I've been a devotee to Malabrigo Merino since it was sold for cheap on Hand Painted Yarn, and I just don't have access to it in an LYS anymore. I still buy other things from their website but getting my hands on some of my original favorite was awesome. I know you doubted yourself on this, but I LOVE IT.
Lessee.. what else.. great felted bag- really awesome shape. I'm not a big bag person, but I use ones that I like and I do like this one. You also see, on the bag there in the bottom, a clover yarn cutter pendant (something I wouldn't buy myself, but am glad to have gifted), and a little keychain notebook (journal obsession, uh ohhh). Also EZ's Knitting Workshop, which I didn't own before but had taken out of the library, so I know it's a GOOD BOOK- on top of that I adore Elizabeth Zimmerman. There's a pack of craft thread which is always good when it comes to making bracelets for the shop, AND, probably the 'funnest' thing in the package- the "Sew Crafty" mini sewing machine. I've had my eye on one of these but never got around to buying one sooo... Yay!
In short- Elizabeth (do people call you liz?), I'm sorry you got so stressed out about what to get me and that I wasn't the best blogger when it came to showing my interests, but you are BY FAR the BEST secret pal I have EVER HAD, so you really really don't need to worry about me being unhappy. Because I'm happy. Incredibly so.
PS: this is yarn that will NOT be getting destashed ;-)
