Goody, goody, gumdrops!

Be My Valentine Charlie Brown Sock Kit!
Beautiful White Oak Studio yarn in pink, red and brown. A handmade accessory pouch, heart stitch marker made by Sunne and yummy, yummy chocolates. The pattern is supposed to be a quick knit :) hmmmm, read it and had no clue how to even start. Checked Ravelry and found out its done in Magic Loop....well Dawn here's our first learning experience for the year! Watched a video on You Tube by Knitwitch and it looks pretty easy. Of course that's the one needle I didn't get for Christmas so had to order it from Knitpicks yesterday! I've already signed up for Woolgirls next sock kit...its It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. Burger King also has Snoopy toys out....guess what we had for dinner last night! So the doctor Snoopy and his xray lights up his heart! Aaahhhh!:) Didn't post this yesterday because I barely felt good enough to open the package. Tried to get into the doctor earlier but they have no sooner appts. than what I have. Cannot wait till next week...

Got this package in today. I ordered some patterns from Loopy Ewe (still not here yet) and ordered this yarn from Woolgirl for them. The bright one is called California Poppy (yes bought it because of the name) and the other is Smooshy (just had to try it)! Also got some of the Soak stuff and she also sent me trials of the other scents because I have never used them. She is the greatest...she is my local yarn shop (even though she's in Oregon and I'm in CA). I also got a little sheep stitch marker and she sent me a beautiful heart stitch marker too. Woolgirl is the greatest! Super fast shipping, super helpful through email...just love her!

I like your valentine's Day kit. You are going to love that Smooshy, too. I have never done magic loop either and I am very apprehensive about it.

Great stash enhancement! You can totally do magic loop. Just find a decent tutorial online and jump right in!

I hope you feel better soon.

Don't cha just love youtube? I guess since Knitty Gritty is going by the wayside it's the next best thing! LOL! Magic Loop, Okay, another technique you'll end up teaching me someday...or knitting for me to pretend I learned it...;O)

And I have to say it (again) as you torture me with all these beautiful goodies: The big green monster is bitting me hard..I'm practically the color of the grinch about now. All those yarns...and stuff!! Shoot, just getting Packages In the Mail - (I'm having serious withdrawals and it's only the middle of Jan!)

Have you put your stash up on Ravelry yet??? You're gonna have as much as me soon!! You just know Woolgirl will be my first stop Jan 2009!

Darn, I hope you get in to the doc soon. I was wondering where you were. It's been a sucky week for me too. We're totally twins. Keep me posted!!!

Great package! I got the Valentine's kit too and loved it! Jenn is great, isn't she!! I have been wondering about the smooshy sock yarn as I have used the Dream in Color Classy and love it. I might have to get some!!!
