Actual knitting-related content; plus mice

I got a really great present from my dear friend R at Purly Brites. Lookee!



Not only did she send me her swag bag from the SF Giant's Stitch'n'Pitch, but she included a skein of raspberry (yum!) Lamb's Pride, 2 skeins of Knit Picks merino in a great fall colorway called "Flower Power," 515 yds. of lusciously fine silk/mohair Tsuki, and 1000 yds. of hand-dyed silk/merino from Interlacements. All these beautiful fibers and colors for me to play with!


The Stitch'n'Pitch tote is cute; it came with a pair of Clover needles (#4--handily, the one size of straight needles I didn't have), and two skeins of Caron Wintuk in SF Giants colors--orange and black which are, yes, conveniently: Halloween colors!

I leave you with a shot of treats friends brought over for dinner last night. They are little chocolate mice made out of Oreos and Hershey kisses. Eeeeek eeeek!

I just looked up the Tsuki yarn - what a dream!

What a great package. Interlacements is a local yarn company, I just love her stuff. It is pricey, but knits so beautifully!

I love the mice cookies - maybe if I make some it will help me overcome my deep seated fear of animals under 5 pounds!
