Stalkin' the Mail Carrier!

Hey you guys! I have been reading my blogines but for some reason was not able to leave comments! Ekkk... That really chaps my hide b/c now I can't remember who I read and didn't comment! Okay off my mini-rant ;)

So I have felt especially blessed these past few days b/c the mailman has brought such beautiful goodies! This Cherry Tree Hill is from Jenn. I would have never bought it myself and she surprised me with it on Friday! Can you believe the beauty of this yarn? It is the DK silk in color: serengeti. I am going to make the Lace leaf shawl by fiber trends with this blissful yarn!




That very same day I got another care package from jenn containing sock yarn and goodies for the kiddos.. Here is the sock yarn... Seal Rock (Socks that Rock, medium weight) And some sock yarn and a pattern from a kit club she is in... This pink and grey yarn is SUPER SOFT!!!!






I joined the candy swap and got some really good candy! straight from MD! Christina surprised me with these local yum yums and a day later most of it is gone....



Look what arrived! My STR club package... I signed up for the year so I got a binder with their logo on it and some extra stuff inside with the pattern! The yarn is their light weight and it is called Rainforest.... Can't wait to make the socks! I joined the KAL for the rockin' sock club... Seems like it will be fun.




I finally broke down and purchased a swift! My husband think sit is a pretty handy little contraption, and i borrowed a ball winder from a friend... Now if I could just get the time to wind all my yarn without the kids sticking their hands in the swift while its turning !

What wonderful packages!! That CTH is gorgeous and look at all that STR yarn!! I can't wait to see all the beautiful socks you knit up with your new yarn. Your candy looks so delicious, too! I don't know if I could have restrained myself long enough to have gotten a picture of all the candy. ;-) Congratulations on the swift!! I have a ball winder, but I'm really itching for a swift- I'm so happy for you! Take care! :-)

Ooooooooh those yarns are gorgeous!!

The bumper sticker is cool!

I would love to try a ball winder one day! Hope you get some time without kids to use it (know the feeling! Mine always love touching my yarn).

Such beautiful yarn. And I have never seen candy deviled eggs before. What a concept!

I love that little key chain. I've learned the hard way that the swift and winder only come out when John's asleep.

Wow, that is some great stuff!

My kids always fight over the swift & ball winder. I try to do most of my winding at the LYS!

Lots of goodies! And put those kids to work! My kids adore using the swift/ball winder. I put the skein on the swift and they each get a turn turning the ball winder knob. I get to referee from the sofa :O)

Wow...lots of great goodies! All the sock yarn is fabulous and you'll have fun in the Rockin Sock Club.

The candy looks yummy and the deviled eggs look so real. Those will be an interesting eat.

OK...I'm officially jealous which is really sad since I am standing in the middle of oodles of yarn, but I SO want to join the STR yarn club, if nothing else to get the goodies! Why can I never be content? Your yarn porn really got to me - lovin' all that sock yarn : )

Ooooo, I am so jealous of your STR stuff! I can't wait to see all the socks you will make!

OK, you NEED to get that ball winder, now! Got mine with a Joann.com 50% off coupon. The best deal on a ball winder I've found, though not that great of a discount. Definitely worth it to go that route for a swift, though!
