And now, the yarn runneth over...

...but you all knew that already. So after being gone for a few days, I arrived home today to 3 packages of yarny goodness!!!


Woolgirl Peppermint Patty Kit

Love love love My Woolgirl Peppermint Patty Kit!! Miss Babs Yummy fingering, with a coordinating color for heels and toes!!

Plucky Knitter

My Plucky Knitter score from earlier this week!! I just love her Merino-Cashmere-Nylon sock blend....and the colors, well, that goes without saying!!

goodies

And some of my order from the Woolgirl Thanksgiving sale. I say some, because dad wanted me to pick out some yarn to go under the tree (gotta love dad!!). And Woolgirl packages things so nicely, my sister said, "Perfect. We don't even need to wrap it!" The above two are Miss Babs Yummy fingering, in Spice and Coventry!

Pick one!

And these pretties?! Well, one of them is for one of my lucky readers! There were 98 blogiversary comments!! Wowee!! Thank you all so much for your kind words!! This blog wouldn't be the same without you!!! The lucky winner is......
Nat and I started reading each other's blogs back in January during the Stash Down Knit-a-Mile from stash challenge! I think I better start thinking about that again.....knitting from the stash!!!
Congratulations Nat!! I couldn't decide on which STR you would like, so let me know if you'd like Jingle Bell Rocks in mediumweight or Hollyday in lightweight! I love them both!! I'll be sending a few other goodies along with your yarn! Email me you address so I can get this to you right away!
And for those who didn't win this time.....check the blog later this week.... I have another idea for a pretty yarn giveaway!
Happy Knitting!!

Congratulations to Nat!

Peppermint Pattie is a perfect name for that luscious yarn in your first picture. Nice.

Nat Red Knits said...

I was sooooooo surprised to get your message!!!! I am still doing the Snoopy dance and my little Brodie is looking at me like I lost my marbles.

Thank you so much for the cool prize... for everybody else..picked the Hollyday just because it is a word I frequently used...I could not choose based on colorways because they are both beautiful.

Irishgirlie...YOU Rock!

Oh yarny yumminess!

I pretty much love that Peppermint Patty kit, too! I found out that there is someone wanting to sell theirs and gee, my fingers went and typed their name and pm'd them through Rav! Still don't have an answer back, but I figure it wouuld be fate if I get it or if it is a no go-cuz we all know I don't need to be buying MORE!

Lovely windfall of stash enhancing loveliness! Great picks, all! Hmmm...so how long will i have to wait until you destash a couple of these puppies?-lol! ;)

Jean said...

Your post persuaded me to start my sock knitting again. I love the yarns you posted, cashmere for socks, now I have to try to find some to knit up.

Ooooooh! That Peppermint Patty kit is fabulous! What a nice bunch of delicious fiber goodness to come home to! All of the yarn packages arriving at chez moi are for gifting, sigh. I know I am getting yarny gift certificates from the fm for Christmas though, so all is well!!!

And congrats to Nat!!! One can never have too muchsocks that rock!
