|enjoying some holiday catnip|
at any rate, there are some new, enticing additions to my knitting library - i hardly know what to cast on first!
Brave New Knits by Julie Turjoman, Mastering Color Knitting by Melissa Leapman, and Twisted-Stitch Knitting by Maria Erlbacher.
not only that, but there was a knit simple magazine stuffed into my stocking, and next year i'll be having some rebecca danger monster ornaments on our christmas tree!
as if all of these things weren't enough, i got some fun gadjets and organizational things as well. first off - a project bag based on a japanese lunch bag - it's like origami for my sock projects:
i also received some extra cords and needle tips for my interchangeable needle set, a magnetic namaste carrying case, a knit kit for all of my on-the-go knitting, and some notebooks to keep track of all of my design ideas, gift knitting, etc. (not pictured: more sock blockers!)
not to mention, while i was away, my copies of malabrigo book 3 arrived in the mail! it's christmas in spades around here.
last but not least - tyler got me some lovely skeins of quince & co. yarn, which i have been dying to try! it's always good to have a husband who knows the way to your heart, although a fairly specific amazon.com wishlist also doesn't hurt (he did pick out the colors himself, though!).
