Not to be confused with the don’t peek post…
I’ve found all kinds of goodies today. The first three are from the Yarn Market e-newsletter.
Socks for a cause. (No great photo exists, or I’d have shared. Honest.) Yarn Market has a great kit with a limited edition yarn to support breast cancer. Since this is also Pampered Chef’s Help Whip Cancer month and they’re pink, they caught my eye. I’ll be ordering the kit, just because…
Next comes the Molly Messenger Bag by Della Q. I’m in search of a bag that will allow me to slide a regular, unfolded pattern into a pocket without any real damage, and I’ve been thinking a messenger style would work best. Anyone know anything about this bag, this company, or messenger-styled knitting bags? Keep in mind that I don’t really do huge projects, but I do like lace wraps, so would I have to cram them in (as I do now with my large, sock project bags) or would they rest happily? Would my needles be protected, because when I can, I like to do lace on straights. Would it be easy enough to drop my project (including all yarn and needles) within, and drop the flap to discourage a certain, beautiful, bad dog from sampling said project/needles?
Now, I’m generally not a pre-order kind of girl, but given my new-found love of non-Kureyon Noro yarns, I’m beside myself. Silk Garden Sock Yarn! Gasp! Swoon! Does Tofutsies have competition as my favorite sock yarn? We’ll have to wait until AUGUST to find out. The Panda Soy comes out about the same time, so I might have to take a day or two off from work and just sit at home and whip out socks! (I’m not joking.)
Then, there’s the media hype over BPA and “plastic” bottles. Nichole and I had been chatting about a zillion things (bentonite is both a grouting substance in water wells AND an anti-diaherral), and she introduced me to another must-have. Camelbak always has great products, and I can’t wait to get mine! For all of its bells and whistles, Lexie has crapola cup holders, so I need spillproof bottles, aside from toting my own green tea to work. In Sissy’s honor, I’ll be ordering the purple and probably the bright blue, or maybe the pink (or all three).
Also, this can count as my Spring Fling Coffee and Yarn Swap week #5 free-form post. As usual, my poor pal will likely get her package right on time or a day or two late. I’ve had a blast shopping for her, and I have all the confidence in the world that I’ve made some great selections. It’s been torture, remembering not to post here as the goodies arrive, so I’ll be sure to share a link to her blog when she receives her package.
