This has been a great week. At the end of last week I had two really nice parcels waiting for me when I got home from work. One was from Germany and the other from England. I love getting things, other than bills, in the mail. He he. A few weeks ago I won a giveaway from Barbina, Little Things Made With Love. She made a really neat hook holder and held a giveaway. I couldn't believe it but I won. I had been planning on making a holder for my favorite hooks. They are from Hobby Lobby and have Bamboo handles. Bates also has bamboo handled hooks, but the Hobby Lobby ones have a little bit more of a pointed head. I love them and have been slowly collecting them in every size. Here is the hook holder she made. It is gorgeous.
The other package I received was from my friend Tracy in England. Tracy and I became friends when we were partnered for a swap in a group on Ravelry. They did the best job ever when they paired us up. I love Tracy. She had wanted to try some cotton from my favorite store, Hobby Lobby. We decided to do a yarn swap. This is the lovely, wonderful yarn she sent me.
The hand dyed yarn and the Rico are worsted wt. and the Mayflower is fingerling. I can't wait to make something with these. Tracy has not yet gotten what I sent her. I hope she gets it soon.
I made a bit more progress on my Stylin Ripple too. I am more than halfway there on this blanket.
