Spoiled is the only word I can think of for myself tonight.

I did a little order to support Martha's Vineyard Fiber Farm and got this:

And inside was this:

Nice supersoft sportweight in Lilac. It's a fairly heavy sportweight too. Haven't decided what to make with it yet. It is so soft and I can tell it is not the tiniest bit itchy.

Also, my Loopy Swap package arrived today!

Before Unwrapping:

After unwrapping:

Entangled Stitches gloves, Reeses hearts, a sock blocker keychain, and 3 glorious yarns: CASBAH in ultraviolet, too-beautiful-for-words handspun, and Wollmeise in Rittersporn. LOVE.

Modeled shot of a glove ;)

Thank you so much Rebecca! You're the best :)

Almost done...

The knitting on my Clapotis is done...but I still need to block it. It's alpaca, so it's quite floppy and needs a nice hard blocking.

I wore it this morning to Starbucks and the barista complimented me on it ;)

In other news, my next "conquest" is going to be the top-down wrap cardigan from Knitting Pure & Simple. I picked up the pattern yesterday morning. Also got this to make it with:

Berrocco Ultra Alpaca :)

Aaaand I have a sock swap to knit for. Need to figure out the yarn/pattern very quickly so I can get moving on it!
