In the Mail This Week

Posted by mobarger on Apr-24-2009

I guess I like to keep our mail carrier busy around here! This week I received:

Socks From the Toe Up cover

Wendy’s new book! If you are a knitter and you like socks and it so happens you do not have this book, I highy suggest you get this book. Now.
I’ll wait.
It is full of advice, different approaches, and of course, PATTERNS. If you are on Ravelry there is a KAL for the book too.

Fiber Baristas 4/09 from Painted Tiger

Here is the newest shipment from Fiber Baristas club. This month the dyer is The Painted Tiger from Iowa. The theme is Field of Dreams and she even included a stitch marker with a tiny baseball. I’ve never knit from one of these sock flats before but now that I have 2 (I received a Conjoined Creations in a swap last year) I don’t have any more excuses to put it off.

Plurk Postcard swap

I joined a postcard swap on Plurk and have so far received 2 out of 3. I remember as a kid sending these all the time- my parents took me everywhere and we camped. It’s been a long time since I sent a post card! My have gone to California, Ontario and the UK.

Yarn Pirate 4/09

And finally here is the latest shipment in the Booty Club. I’ve actually canceled my subscription for the upcoming round as my skeins are piling up. She has very nice yarn. Other clubs have spoiled me by throwing in extras though. I’m all for the swag!

I will continue to do my part to keep our mail carrier busy. Did you know today is Etsy Day? I may have bought yarn …
