I love getting stuff in the mail, and an added benefit is getting stuff in the mail when you have little to blog about. Presto chango, instant blog fodder!
This is my yarn for the Enchanted Wood Lace Shawl KAL from The Unique Sheep. Hope on over to the page I linked there to read all about it. The Unique Sheep is finishing up The Secret Garden KAL. I didn’t join that one, but my buddy L-B did and she has been having a lot of fun with it. so I decided to sign up when they announced the Enchanted Wood club. You make your choice from many many yarns, and I chose their Luxe yarn (wool/silk blend) in a gradience colorway: Mirkwood. I love my yarn!
It looks like sign-ups are still open so anyone interested can still join in the fun. The KAL starts January 10, 2010.

I was flipping through the rest of the magazine and this caught my eye:
(It’s from an article about knitting resources on the internet.)
And from the comments . . .
Oooh – I love the kitty bag. Where did you get it?
That is a custom made bag from Three Bags Full. Michelle does gorgeous work — I highly recommend her bags!
