I love my mail carrier!

Look what came in the mail today! My prize from the Vegan Pal 2 swap. It was worth sitting in the road with my "Will work for Yarn" sign! In addition to the book, Easy Knitted Socks, were...

two cute little stitch markers - a dragonfly and a ladybug - rather wittily posed on an appropriate quilt square!

and three balls of Maizy, a yarn made from corn! It's sock weight so no doubt this will become some almost edible socks for me.

"..almost edible socks..." you are just begging for us to make some rude comments. I will refrain but I can't be sure that Katherine and Samantha will. ;-)

Lucky you Nicola! That yarn is bee-you-tee-ful! I didn't even know there was yarn made of corn. So much yarn to try... Will have to check out all your new goodies Sat.

??? Heather! I never even thought of THAT!!

What beautiful new treasures.

Great goodies in your mail, Nicola!
I've been curious about that book, now maybe I can take a peek at your copy instead of looking for it at the library. ;o)
Very cute stitch markers and what lovely yarn! Can't wait to see the socks you'll knit from it.
