It's Parcel week!

It's been parcel week for me and its only Wednesday. Yesterday I received my dishcloth from Sharon in Kentucky. I love it! Its done in the Chinese wave pattern and in multi coloured yarn (purples, greens and beiges). And she sent me a cool pair of bamboo needles.! They are Clove Takumi 4.5mm and they are so smooth. Can't wait to use them. Will post a picture later.

Then! Today my tea swap pals package arrive! Its awesome too! Thank you Sharon in California. She sent me Chamomile Lavender Herbal Tea (100% organic), Butter crisp bisquits, a vanilla candle, white tea vanilla berry relaxing bath rea, and 2 skeins of lovely mint green 100% hand spun wool. Can't wait to drink, eat relax and knit with it all. Thank you soooo much secret pal!!! Will post pictures later.

Zellers fashion yarn

I thought Zellers sale started today for their yarn. Turns out I didn't read the date of the pull out flyer. Duh!! On thursday and friday any fashion yarn is buy 1 get one free. Well! What's a girl to do! So I was shopping and picked it up now and will go back on Thursday and have them do a refund repurchase.

I picked up:
2 balls Bernat Cotton in sage green
4 balls of Bernat Matrix in acid axis (green and light blue tonnes
6 balls of Bernat Satin in evergreen
2 balls of Bernat Satin in snow

With the Matrix I am going to make a poncho or a cool top from the Lace booklet they have. The Satin I will use for a neat sleeveless top for me. Now don't know when these will all be done but I have lots and lots of new yarns to play with. :)
May have to get more on Thursday! Oops! Did I say that out loud. lol

Hey I could of done that colour of the month thing with all the greens I got! hehe

They had alot of different colours in Boa too. Not a big Boa fan but if people are thing Christmas gifts (I know for some its too soon to think) now is a great time to stock up. That's what I am doing with some of these yarns. Can't wait to get started on everything I've boughten over the last two weeks.

Will try and post pictures later.
