Additions to the craft room....

...or "how to stuff more in the closet".

I've been doing a little enlarging of my stash and one of my favorites is Wine Stains from Make One Studio

I also bought a pattern for a felted bag - Bar Harbor Shell Bag

I loved the book Simply Shetland 4 and found it when we were on vacation!

I had to get one of the wonderful bags at piddleloop, perfect for carrying sock knitting projects.

It's a Sockapalooza Party

We returned from our vacation to the beach and today I went to pick up our accumulated mail. Jackpot! Look at this box...

I tried to be real cool and not rip it open right away. I was right to savor it, like really good key lime pie.

Whee! Look at the socky goodness. A big thanks to Marie -France for all the wonderful goodies and the socks, oh the socks! Monkey sock pictures have been shown on so many blogs which has induced coveting on my part so it has been on my to-knit list (a very long list) for a while.

They fit so nicely and they're knit from yummy Colinette Jitterbug yarn.
And there are stitch markers...
and candy... and more yarn, soap, candy. Sigh, the goodness of it all. I am overwhelmed so I will go sit and savor it all.
