Well, my package finally got here today. Here is a picture.
Unfortunately, the lighting was horrible and this is the best that I could do. The ball on the left is the color pimento. I am going to use that for a stole I am going to make for my step-daughter’s wedding next February. Her colors are going to be black and red, so I thought a nice red stole would be useful during the reception since she wants to have an outdoor wedding. It is going to be the sea and shells stole found here http://poshyarn.co.uk/patterns.html.
The skein of yarn is the color storm. It is more like a green/blue. I will be using that to test out for cosy over at cosymakes. It is called the Marian Seaman Scarf. You should go over to her blog and check it out. also check out her flickr, she has a beautiful picture of it on there.
The test knit scarf was to be my ravelympics project, but now that I have received my materials so late I can only hope that this can be accomplished.
I bought a few books too; A to Z Knitting, Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitting Workshop and Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitter’s Almanac. Also, I purchased some odds and ends like blocking pins, a retractable tape measure and some stitch markers.
It is time to get knitting!
