Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  Thanks, SP!
My secret pal might be a mind reader!

what a wonderful, generous package! i absolutely love everything. what you see here is: a super cute sock pattern, US 1 brittany needles (my standard sock knitting size, and i've been needing another pair! this is also my first wooden pair of sock needles, which i've been wanting to try!), and adorable lantern moon Bee measuring tape (i'm on a bee kick lately. The Girls and i are going to start beehive hats soon, and i'm sewing a honey bee purse, so this is perfect!), a set of Burt's Bee's lotions (again, bee love! and i just ran out of the milk and honey lotion that i had, so this came just in time!), a crackling wick candle in warm sugar which i can't wait to try, a See's candy bar wrapper, the candy...uhm...dissappeared before the photo was taken, and finally, Lorna's Laces shepherd sock in Lucky Stripe. I've been dying to try lorna's, and i absolutely love the pink and orange together. i can't wait to cast on!

thank you sooooooo much, SP! i've been thoroughly spoiled!

also, today is kellen's and my fifth anniversary, so it was wonderful to get this package after a great morning and a delicious brunch at the creperie! i couldn't have asked for a better day.
Oh I am so glad you like the yarn! YOu said you didn't really like orange, but liked it with pink, so I thought this yarn was perfect. I am dying to knit that sock pattern....I just can never find the time!
i have the same yarn! just one hank in that color and another hank in orange and blue. i can't wait to cast on with those!
Happy anniversary!!

Oh & what a great package! I love that colorway!!
