Missed it!

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? :)

Happy Blogiversary! You share the day with the Yarn Harlot's B-day and WWKIP day! What fun!

Yes...the yarn is something you probably wouldn't choose, but I'm dying to see it knit up now. Usually those dyers know what they're doing and they knit version blows you away. Time to CO for a new project.

Happy Blogiversary!! I love this kit even though its totally a colorway I wouldn't normally get! Funny thing these sock clubs! My sister loves it though, so maybe I'll finally make her another pair!

Happy Blogversary!

I must say that I love Woolgirl's dyeing. I subscribe to her blog just so I have some eye candy everyday. =)
