I got out in the (chilly) sunshine today and got pictures of all my sock yarn goodies.
First up, the Creatively Dyed November shipment.
The yarn for the month, a pretty pattern from Wendy Johnson, and a pattern tamer, which is a ribbon-trimmed set of magnets designed to help you keep track of your knitting rows. Not something I would have bought for myself, but it'll probably come in handy.
But look at the richness of these colors....
From Wool Girl, I got all this:
The theme, as if you couldn't guess, was Georgia O'Keeffe's poppies. There's a pattern at the bottom of the stack there and then, clockwise from 6 o'clock, a skein of yarn, some O'Keeffe postcards, a sock project bag, some little satin and organza poppies to use for decoration somewhere, a small tin, painted and decorated with a poppiy and filled with jelly beans in orange and red, and a tiny sample of Soak in the floral scent. In the center is a card with two adorable, poppy-themed stitch markers.
Here's a closer look at the yarn and the stitch markers.
Wow! What color!
