I got my KICK package today. What a treat it is!!! I love this yarn, I think mom has outdone herself this time around. The blues are wonderful and rich and the flecks of colour in the yarn are fun. I don't know what it is going to be yet, I need to just ogle it for a little while first.

She also sent that little blue container, how perfect for DPN's. Mom your goodies out rock the sock's that rock club. Thank you.

Mom sent this to me as well. When she and Darryl went to stitches I passed her a little $$ to pick something neat out for me. As usual she picked something that will be fun to knit and something I will wear. I think this will be on the needles soon:

Socks that Rock came last week, the yarn is pretty, but I hear the pattern is a challenge, so I am not sure if I want to knit it or not.

A bit of spinning, I think I will pass this on to mom when I am done with it for a dye job. It is merino wool and very soft. I am having trouble with the white fiber, it is very hard to see how much twist I am putting into the yarn. I think I am putting in enough, but I can't tell by looking at it, it is just hard to see.

Weird, I wrote this post last night and thought I had posted it. Today when I turned on the computer to post I found this one had never been posted. Does that make any sense?

I know the hemp feels very stiff. It will soften as you wash it. I'm not sure how hard it is to knit. The pattern is fun and easy.

I'm glad you like the KICK yarn. STR aren't related to you.

I like the container for DPN's too. Plus the yarn is beautiful too.
