Gifties!

Yay! I have received some delicious yarny gifts! I love it when people know me well enough to buy me YARN!!!!!!!

Wednesday I went out for lunch with a friend that I hadn't seen much this summer. We have been trying to work out a time to get together for over a month now and finally it happened. She showed up with an unexpected, belated birthday gift for me.


2 skeins of Regia Crazy Color yarn in great bright colors, and a little trinket box from Willow Tree. (I collect a few of their pieces.) She is not a knitter so I was very surprised to get yarn from her. What a good friend!

I received another great yarn package in the mail this week from one of my knitting friends.


2 skeins of Regia Bamboo. I really have been wanting to try this yarn. My LYS has a baby sweater made out of it, and it is so incredibly soft!!!! I can't wait to make a pair of socks with it. Now I just need to finish the STR socks so I can dig into this stuff!

Yikes! I found a new dishcloth pattern here. I am trying really hard not to start one so I can finish up some of my UFOs, but wow I am TEMPTED!!!!

Nice presents! I haven'd heard of the Regia Bamboo yet. I bet it's really nice. It'll make awesome socks.

Both yarn gifts look fabulous! I can't wait to see them knit up, especially the bamboo - those colours look really pretty!

The yarns are so pretty. I can't wait to see what you make with them! Thanks for sharing the dishcloth pattern too. I really like it! Think I'll have to try some later today. :-)

I have some of that Regia Stretch too - isn't it funky? So sorry about your finger. Head on collision? You're lucky to be here! Ouch!

Hey Lisa! That Regia Crazy Color yarn is the same colorway I used on my stripey socks! You'll love the way it works up. It's a really fun yarn. There's a picture of them finished on my blog.
