My order from Blue Moon was waiting for me at the post office today! I had to go up there to mail off the bobbin that I'm returning and could hardly wait to get my box home and open it.
I ordered four skeins, all mediumweight, since I like the thickness better than the lightweight.
I'm a bit disappointed in the lunasea, it's much brighter, and lighter toned in the blue moon picture. It's darker than it shows in this pic too. The flash lightened it. There are a lot of muddly black parts...sigh. Not sure if I hate it or just don't like it, or if I can live with it...
Grimm's Willow Wren:
I love the pastels in this one, it's really pretty.
Then there's my Funky Monkey kit, it came in a tube. These are the two skeins that were inside it. Rockstar and Hot Flash. They are kinda similar...not sure if the monkey will look how I want it. We'll see. They are half skeins, which gives you enough for one big monkey and one small. I might just make a few little ones, cuz the kids will obviously fight if they are different.
So that's my goodies for today. I have one more order from Funky Carolina that I'd placed a while ago, before the diet, so that's on the way. I also have two custom ordered piddly bags that are super cute. They should be on the way soon. AND I have a book on the way. So stay tuned.
Sorry there's no knitting, but the project I'm working on is for a swap, and I don't want to show it in case she reads the blog! I really like how it's coming out though. :)
