Oops! Looks like I missed my first blogiversary! It was this past Saturday, June 14 - yay me! Sticking with something for a year?! Surprising that I haven't lost interest :) I guess Jen over at Woolgirl did remember, though, as my latest sock club shipment happen to arrive on Saturday as a little gift :)
I'm totally blown away by the packages she puts together and I will definitely keep this club going next year! The theme of this month's shipment was Frogs, inspired by the inevitable ripping that all knitters must do. The yarn is the sportweight from Dashing Dachs (I'd never heard of the yarn before, so I'm anxious to try.) Granted, it's a colorway I would NEVER purchase on my own (you can see a better color shot in my Rav stash) but I'm going to give it a shot and knit it up! I don't think I'll use the pattern that we got, though. I'm considering something similar to Jen's Swirly Socks. With all that color, you REALLY need a simple pattern :) Other contents of the package were a calculator, a pencil, a postcard and notebook, a frog sucker, frog stickers, toy frogs and my two favorites, a Gauge measurer by Karatstix and the cutest stick marker EVER by WeeOnes. I love Karatstix's bamboo stuff (I have an Alpaca WPI measurer already) and the detail in the teeny tiny marker is amazing. This is the closest shot I could get that wasn't blurry!
You're jealous, right? :)
