Lucky Me!

Prize!

A few weeks ago I won a contest Nathania was having over at Purls Beyond Price! I stopped by Purlescence today to do some knitting (okay, and a little shopping, but I'll show those pics later) and Nathania gave me my prize. She spoiled me thoroughly!!
Inside that pretty Della Q bag....

Prize!

A little bit of sock yarn heaven! Trekking XXL, Lisa Souza Sock yarn, STR... and do you see that sock pattern!! Its a new pattern by Nathania Apple (so new its not even in Ravelry yet....they are selling it at the store though) that uses STR!! Nathania was worried about finding a color of STR that I didn't have (I told her I would love any color, even if I already had it).
But guess what???

STR

I don't have Fire on the Mountain! Isn't it gorgeous! Why didn't I have it?? I love it!!

What a prize!! Thank you thank you Nathania :)

Happy Weekend!

You didn't have Fire on the Mountain? I thought that was like a STR staple colorway or something. Huh. I never would have considered that for you cus I woulda thought you had it already. Cool. Ya learn something new every day.

Congratulations! I would not have guessed you didn't have Fire on the Mountains! That is a "must have" STR colorway! I think Farmhouse is, too...I think that means I need to get Farmhouse, huh?
