One Skein Gifts – June and July
My one skein package came from my secret pal yesterday! My pal went ahead and sent both June and July’s gifts at once. I taught 9 students yesterday, which is a lot, plus traveled to and back from Newberg. When I got home at 10:30 last night this was waiting for me and it made my exaustion the happy giddy kind.
First I got some grey hand spun yarn. It is tweedy looking due to several shades of black/grey and white being spun together. I really like it, but I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet. Maybe some gloves?
This green is incredibly soft. I love it so much! There is a little over 500 yards in both balls! I don’t know what it will be yet, but I can tell it’s going to be a delight to knit with.
Then there were more goodies! The needles are handmade. I’m just waiting for the rest of my handspun to dry and I’m going to cast on a scarf with these. They are a little smaller than US 8 and they are very smooth. I think the tips will be really easy to knit with also. Two candles which made the box smell wonderful.
Here’s a close up of the stitch markers. These are my first special stitch markers. I have ugly plastic rings and I usually use little bits of yarn. Now my knitting can look stylin’ as I go.
Thank you so much AJ! I love my box.
