Fun Packages

I have’nt had a chance to show these yet, but here are 2 great packages I received in December. First is Scout’s Indie Swag Club

The colors in the wool are unbelievable, it’s called Glampyre, then there is a pattern from Glampyre Knits, and 2 cute snowmen stitch markers from GoodToBeGirl.

 My second package was a Christmas present from a friend, it is a knitting calender that includes a pattern for everyday of the year.

Now somehow or other I don’t think this particular pattern will be the first one I make from it.


 Have a great day.

    Oh come on . . . even in the name of . . .
    No sorry , can’t come up with something, a knitted thong just seems wrong. I guess I think there are still some places yarn shouldn’t go.
    I never thought I would say that!
    That is how the calender starts? My goodness, where is there to go from there?

    That yarn from the swag club is lovely!

    I TRIPLE DARE YA to knit the thong!

    (of course, you do not have to model it.)

    It would make a brilliant gift for a hen night though!

    Doesn’t Scout do the best colors?! I buy from her too & just love her stuff! I just Tarzhay and it just floors me how talented she is. The calendar is fun too, no? What a great score!

    Looks like plenty of fun … the yarn, the kit, the calendar. Not sure about the thong, somehow seems like it would be awfully itchy no matter what yarn was used. Makes me uncomfortable just to think about it.
