yarn love

So... guys!  A bouquet of yarn?  Talk about making my day!  The sweet peeps over at Knitcrate sent me this beautiful bouquet.  How wonderful for a knitter to receive!  I am SO remembering this as a gift idea.  They used straight knitting needles as the skeins "stems" to keep the skeins from flopping.  And yarn to hold the bouquet together.  Absolutely perfect.  And SO, SO, thoughtful!
Did you know that Sandy from by the lakeside is now dying her own yarn?  Yep.  She is.  And it is delicious.  This is her Casual Friday fingering weight yarn.  80% Superwash merino/ 20% nylon.  I love her names that she chose for them.  "Exceptionally Ordinary" on the left.  ""I hope there's pudding" on the right. (Are those awesome names or what?!)  Sandy will update her shop on December 7 at 12pm EST.  Her project bags are the bomb!
Spirited Fibers is Adirondack yarns own line. 80% washable merino/20% nylon.   It's dreamy... and those colors!

I'm seriously loosing sleep over all of this yarn.  I can't wait to cast on with all of it!

I'm thinking of a blogging challenge for the month of December.  I've missed my camera.  And this space.  I want to capture those moments of beauty that are everyday life.  So, I will try to post something every day.  Even if it is just a photo.  Feel free to join me and let me know if you do!
