Did I mention I love yarn?

Eek! I am so behind in blogging again. I plead household sickness and dr. appointments. Sorry.

I recently (3 weeks ago) got a big order in from Knit Picks. I was soooo happy to open this box:

So much knitting goodness!!! I had some "bonus" money from a return I made (return from Hell!! But that is another story for another blog....), so I went a bit hog wild. Shhh.... don't tell my husband!! :)

Some new doo-dads: Needle pockets, long cables (for Magic Loop knitting), and some size 13 tips for my Options set. Plus some beautiful Harmony cable needles. Let's get a closer look at those:

Oooh... purty! I wish I could afford to get all the Harmony tips! They are so cool. :) Okay, what other goodies?

2 skeins of Shimmer in the colorway Happy Dance

2 skeins of Gossamer in the colorway Sweet Peas

Bunches of Wool of the Andes Worsted!!

2 skeins in Beryl Heather

2 skeins in Carbon Twist

2 skeins in Mulled Wine

2 skeins in Pidgeon Twist

2 skeins in Iron Ore

There was also 8 skeins of Merino Style in Petal

2 skeins of Palette in Red

2 skeins of Palette in Apricot

8 skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky in Mauve
Wow, I've got some knitting to do now!! :) Look for more updates right on top of this one. Like I said, I've been way behind. Plus, my camera just got batteries again yesterday. I still have my Favorite Color Swap 3 package to post!! :)

Wow-wy, that's an amazing order! ^_^ I love the purple (Sweet peas) yarn :) I also recently ordered from Knit Picks and am anxiously waiting for it - I have the Harmony dpn sock set in there :D And some Wool of the Andes too that I'm looking forward to try for a blanket :) I know - not superwash. But I needed about 5 different shades of brown, and they had it lol I'll just be extra areful with it ;-)

I started shopping for your bag! This is exciting :) I can't wait to get it to you!

By the way, I'm also a big fan of Jean Auel's "Earth's Children" series - amazing books!
