Thanks for all of the nice comments on the last post. It's so invigorating to have my artwork to get such a warm reception!
Due to some mechanisms put in place quite a while ago, a phenomenon occurred in the Eleven Stitches mailbox earlier this week. I got four packages in two days. Some might even call it (hushed voice:) a perfect storm.
Last week, I ordered some yarn from Sundara. It was some of her "Limited Edition" yarns, and I was proud of myself for being fast enough to snap some up. This is Charcoal over Cotton Candy in sportweight. Love. It. I hear that Knitting on the Road has some patterns for thicker weight yarn, so I'll be looking there for inspiration.
In March, I also ordered some of Sundara's anniversary Cherry Blossom sock yarn. Sundara said it took her so long to get it to me because she had over twice the number of orders than she expected. I'm not surprised-- she's so talented!
In February, All Things Heather put out a request for donations to Reach for the Stars. I donated, and as a thank you, Heather sent me some of her wonderful yarn. I didn't make any color requests, so she just sent me a random skein. It's so lovely, and it's a perfect color for me.
In January, I joined the Socks that Rock Rockin' Sock Club. The April shipment arrived in the mail in the same day as my All Things Heather yarn. It's very pretty, and the silk content gives an interesting effect to the color. Almost a barber pole look.
So there you have it. Things I did in January, February, March, and April made me a very happy girl on Wednesday and Thursday of last week. (I'm loving the macro mode on my new camera, BTW. It really shows off the yarn!)
