One Skein Swap on Steriods

So I got my second One Skein swap package from my secret pal. There are only two things I know about my pal right now. 1. She's from Brooklyn, New York and 2. She is VERY VERY VERY generous and amazing!!!!
Here is what she sent me this month:

A really nice tote bag from the NY Sheep & Wool festival!

A close up!

GORGEOUS handspun yarn from Peace of Yarn...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color. There are 2 skeins of this!

2 more skeins of hand dyed yarn from Maine that was dyed in salt water! The color is more of a peachy red and gorgeous.

2 more skeins of this wool/mohair blend in fall colors. These are my favorite ones...she also sent me the same kind of yarn in reds/oranges last month. These are also from Maine.

AND yes, there's more. A hand carved crochet hook from Grafton Fibers in Vermont. I must have told her that Anne is teaching me to crochet at a class at Skip One, Purl Too soon!

And last but not least, the Summer issue of Interweave Knits, samples of Eucalan and several patterns for felted flowers!


HOW SPOILED AM I! I love everything pal! Thank you soooo much!

I haven't knit much this past week because I got really sick again so hopefully I will have some new FO's later this week to show you. I need to finish up the bottom of the spiral rib bag from One Skein that I'm making for MY One Skein pal and keep working on a birthday gift that is coming up.

Have a great week!
