Chapter 101: In Which Jo is Horribly Spoiled

Woo-hoo! I love getting mail! I came home at noon today to meet the bug guy for our semi-annual rendez-vous and there were not one, but two packages waiting for me on my doorstep. The first was my second package from my Knitty SP9 upstream pal:

Clockwise from the royal blue - Malabrigo (Be still my heart! How I love to knit with thee!) Two skeins of Plymouth Suri Merino in cream and a lovely blue-green, and most importantly - two skeins my SP spun herself! The light blue is a Columbia/Dorset blend and the darker one a 100% merino that is self-striping. Also, not pictured - the current issue of Spin-Off magazine. SP, thank you so much! I can't wait to try these all out! I have never bought this magazine before, either, so I am eager to go through it.

Here is some yarn pron for all of you:

I'm so lucky!
And don't forget the second package - my Turtle Daddy's Sock Blockers came in the mail from Turtlegirl herself! Don't my socks look so much better here? They actually look like socks and not like lumps anymore.
Go visit Cristi's shop - I'm sure you will love the stuff there! The yarn above is Knitpicks Dancing and I have been working on these socks forever. I'm hoping these sock blockers are the impetus to get my socks done quicker!

And she had one treat still in there for me - some destashed sock yarn! This was from something separate altogether but she included it in the package. Thank you - I love all the greens in this yarn.

Woo Hoo! Yay for living only a few states away! I shipped those out on Friday! Awesome. I'm so glad you like them. I'm just sorry I forgot all about the yarn. I haven't forgot about Willow though. I'm still on the prowl for some treats.

The sock forms look great. I'll have to pick up a pair once I work up the nerve to knit some socks! Love the yarn, too. Very nice!

I love any and all Malabrigo. The blue is gorgeous.
