These colorways are, from left to right and top to bottom: Creme de Cassis, Garland, Winter Wonderland, Red Ribbon Foxes, Tiptoe, Strega Nona, Turkish Delight, Starlight. All are on different bases, so you also get a sampling of those as well.
So much pretty, right??? And if I was better at photography, you'd be able to see that they are even lovelier - so far, solids, speckles, tonals, and some sparkle! And every once in a while, an extra goody thrown in. I am so glad I saved up to get this, I'm enjoying having a package to open every day, and even if I can't knit with it right now, just being able to do something "yarny" every day has been wonderful.
Dee asked me what I planned to make, and right now, I'm still deciding. Since I can't knit right now, I have plenty of time to think about it ...
But wait, there's more! I had forgotten that I had also signed up for a stitch marker Advent Calendar from An Caitin Beag, so I have 24 tiny packages to open as well. Here are the first eight days of those.
Again, I wish I could take better photographs, so you could see how lovely these are. She is a jewelry maker/designer besides a knitwear designer, and some of these are just so pretty and intricate! And being that I am always looking for stitch markers, I think I'll be glad to have all of these.
That's it for now. Lots of things I want to do today, so after my breakfast, I'm gonna try to get moving for a fun and useful day. I hope your Saturday is a good one as well.
