SP parcel!

Yesterday I got my second SP parcel! It was kind of green/red colour themed - very coordinated. Look!

There were two balls of burgundy cotton, two hanks of sock yarn, possibly hand dyed and possible self-striping, more fruity shampoo and conditioner, more chocolate, a compact mirror, and best of all: a Amy Butler sewing book! It's so good I can't believe it - I love her fabrics (check them out at purlsoho.com) and the designs are very elegant. Can't wait to make something from it!

Thank you, dear SP, for all the nice things! And please tell me more about the sock yarn!

Apart from that, I've done some yarn procurement lately. First of all, I got some Regia sock yarn from Garnkorgen - I thought it was just multicoloured, but it turns out to be rainbow striped. That works fine, since I'm going to knit socks for a gay friend... From the same shop I got two hanks of Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock in colourway "Tuscany" - very nice! This will be socks for a special someone, when I get the time... The third yarn in this pic is like heaven in my hands - Faerytale from Du Store Alpacka. It's pink and fuzzy, and I'm making a lace shawl to wear at a wedding in two weeks. Free pattern (in Swedish) available at Avigmaskan.

Wow, these are very nice presents !

I dyed the sock yarn myself with kool-aid. I don't know if it is self-striping - I guess you have to try :-)

Your last package is already on the way!
