There is a certain jolt of excitement I get whenever a package arrives in the mail with my name on it.
Canadians Have the Best Packages!
This particular package isn’t directly from Canada, although the contents were made there.
I ordered a few hanks of Koigu KPPPM in two different colorways. I plan on using this for either the Koigu Cross Stitch Scarf, or perhaps this:
Feather and Fan works particularly well with Koigu’s handpainted yarns and looks fantastic.
A number of folks have expressed interest in receiving the Handwoven Home book by Liz Gibsen (see earlier blog post). If you’re interested, let me know in comments or via e-mail or Facebook and I’ll randomly choose a winner this Friday.
I did end up finishing my latest Cross Stitch Scarf.
It’s a wonderful shock of color that I really love, and the textured fabric of the Cross Stitch pattern makes it even more interesting.
I’m a lousy model, but I think I can handle the bold colors, no? (and yes, I did wake up looking like this…just without the scarf).
