Glorious Goodies Have Arrived

I had intended to rant about the joke that is my job.  But I decided it would be more interesting to all those concerned to talk about all the goodies that I received over the last few days.  And boy oh boy have I had fun fondling and playing.

First is my "Loopy Ewe Sock Club" package.  Would you believe it, a "Cookie A" pattern and soft and squishy yarn from "Snitches".  The sock pattern is as fabulous as all of her other beautiful patterns.  And the yarn, a club exclusive (I think) called "Muddy Waters".  It's a cool shade of blue with small portions in a beige colorway.

Thanks to one of the fabulous ladies I knit with on Tuesdays I checked out, and purchased two skeins of yarn from "Angora Valley Yarns".  Both skeins are from the "Nymph" collection.  One is white to blue, the other is white to gray.  Both are absolutely gorgeous.

As ridiculous as it may sound, every year for my birthday I make several "just because I want it" purchases.  This year I chose an iPod Touch.  The main reason this is a ridiculous purchase is that I already have a perfectly good 5th Generation 80gb iPod Classic.  But what can I say, I wanted one so I bought myself one.  And I have to say, I'm glad I did.  I love it.

I love being able to get on the internet.  It's great having a larger screen to watch movies or music videos on.  And also there are some really cool games available for it.  I love my gadgets!

I wanted several doggie bags for my walks with Harley.  This one I found on etsy.  Fashion Victim has some great things available.

And I also purchased another "Gabrielle Lace Keeper" from "Julip Bags".  I have several lace UFO's, and tons more that I want to knit.  So I figured what the heck, buy another bag.  And I did!  And as is always the case with Amby's workmanship, the bag is perfect.

And now, for the shipment I've been waiting impatiently for for almost three weeks.

My "Wollmeise Sock Club" package arrived yesterday.  But since it has to be signed for, I had to wait until I got off work today and went to the post office, to actually get my hands on it.

And as has been the case with the wonderful "Claudia", the yarns are glorious.

The extras are fabulous also.  They included a gorgeous sock pattern, a ruler, and a set of beautiful wood dpns.

Without further ado.  I present, unfortunately, some not so great pictures.  As has been stated by several other bloggers.  Pictures just don't do this yarn justice.  But I did the best I could with what I had.

Yeah for me!  One of the skeins is purple!  I love PURPLE!!!

Not so yeah for me.  The other skein is green.  I hate GREEN!!!

But no matter what,  I have to say a hearty thanks to "Miss Claudia" of "Wollmeise"!  You are my hero!!!

More to come later.  I hope!

Happy knitting!!!
