Today I figured I’d show you some things I got in the mail in the last two days. Whenever Matt brings in the mail and there’s a package or letter (not bill) for me, he tells me he brought me prezzies. It always makes me laugh and I get excited and say “I love prezzies!” Yesterday I got a package and a card in the mail.
The card was from Jessica! I was surprised to get a card in the mail and it made me smile before I even opened it. Then I opened it and had a good laugh!
The package that came (and was expected) was from Knitterly Things. I’ve been wanting to get enough stripey yarn to make a pair of striped knee socks, so last week’s update, I got two skeins of “Seashells from the Seashore” for that, plus a skein of “Meadows” and two of the new coordinating skeins (heels and toes!) that Julia is now selling in her shop – one for each of the colorways I bought for socks.
Today’s mail brought me two books.
I pre-ordered both books from Amazon when I first heard when they would be out. Since they were coming out close together, I decided to order them together and save on shipping. I was pretty excited when I got the shipping notice on Sunday and was waiting for them to get here. On the left is Sock Innovation by Cookie A. and to the right is Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy A. Johnson. So far I’m enjoying both books – reading through and trying to decide which patterns to knit first! There are a lot of reviews of both books on various blogs, so I don’t think I’ll be doing any myself, but I think both have a number of great patterns that I’ll knit :o)
