What a way to end July!!

Wow, today was my lucky mail day!! I received both my July Dishcloth Swap Package from Alix, and my Plucky Knitter yarn that I won from my blogger friend Peaknit. I truely got spoiled by Alix, who sent all sorts of things to pamper myself (the theme was birthday). I got body cream and lotion, and a candle all in cherry blossom scent. I got a box of English Tea and a lavender eye mask, that I'd like to use now, but alas, it might make my typing even worse than it already is. :) The dishcloth is truely a work of art. It is purple, and kind of a double star pattern. Looks difficult to me, and she did a great job on it!! She also sent a new skein of Sugar N" Cream yarn for me. Thanks again Alix. Totally worth the wait.

Like I said, I also received my skein of Plucky Knitter yarn. It is the most glorious colors, and everyone that knows me will think she made it just for me. It is several shades of purple (are you sensing a theme?) and several lucious shades of olive. Perhaps a little brown, where the olive turns. Like I said, made for me!!! It is a bulky weight, and with 100 yds. I think I shall knit a cowl. Oh darn, the weekend is here,(close enough), and I have been finishing up projects, and oh darn, I need to cast on another one. What shall I do?!? Thank you to Alix and Peaknit for all my wonderful goodies! Happy Weekend!
