My Lucky Day

Today I got the most amazing and wonderful gift box! It was from the lovely folks at the Native American Support Yahoo Group. Just look at all those goodies. There's a fabulous tote bag; a book of adorable baby patterns; a "survival kit" with tape measure, point protectors, stitch holder, needles, row counter and more; those knitting needles that light up on the tips; a Wonder Knitter; and yarn!

Just take a look at this gorgeous yarn. Isn't it spectacular? I have no idea what it is, but I'm hoping I can get a pair of mittens from it for the Mittnz 2008 challenge.

And take a gander at this sock yarn. The multicolor is Trekking, and the solid purple is Socka. Boy, I can't wait to knit up these yarns... They even coordinate with the other yarn.

With the crazy-busy week we've been having, this gift box was a real mood-lifter. Meanwhile, we still haven't finished up the work we got yesterday, and today we got yet another job (the other two articles we were expecting didn't materialize though, which I suspect is just as well, for now...)

I started the heel flap on the first Cascading Leaves sock today, and worked a bit on the cross stitch for Liat's bag. Aside from my trip to the post office to get my package, I worked a little, cleaned a little, read a little... It was a good day, especially thanks to the folks at Native American Support!

I think that the yarn you are unable to identify might be handspun! It's beautiful (as are all the other yarns!).
