I received these books yesterday, and realized I still haven’t shared the fun knitting-related stuff I received for my b-day and Christmas!
** Warning…long post with lots of pictures **
I’ve been wanting these books for a while. I couldn’t pass up the Barnes & Noble sale!
I love this bag! Some of my friends gave me a gift card to Colorful Yarns so I could get one of the new Amy Butler Sweet Life bags for my b-day.
Mary-Kay gave me this pashmina from her trip to New York!
These are also from Mary-Kay…I get to choose the color and she’ll dye them just for me :)
Stacey & her mom, Marsha, hosted a Christmas party and we each had a partner for the gift swap. Marsha gave me this pink bucket (holds lots of yarn!), some Opal sock yarn*, sock stitch markers and sock patterns! They also had cute little candy cane stitch markers as party favors.
Sam gave me this fun stuff: a really cute cat book, “lounge” pants with cats and yarn, and Colinette JitterBug yarn in the Mist colorway*.
Nachaele gave me this pretty Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino yarn in the Seamist colorway*, some little sheep stitch markers, sheep-shaped soap and an AMC gift card.
This cool tote is from Kelly.
This awesome bag and stitch markers (skulls!!!) are also from Kelly!
The week before Christmas the Arvada knitters got together at Knit Knack for a gift exchange. I got this book from Betsy.
I got these awesome stitch markers from Stacey. LOVE the sheep on them :)
And finally, some fun tape measures from Lantern Moon!
Thank you so much to everyone! I’m looking forward to knitting a lot more this year, and learning how to knit socks!! :D
*The photos don’t necessarily portray the actual color of the yarn! Sorry, bad lighting in our apartment :(
By the way, if you’re looking for some new yarn, or possibly a new knitting bag, check out Jeni’s Destash sale!
