I received my order from that wonderful Knit2Purl2 sale - as I knew things were running short I over ordered a bit, and ended up getting a little more than I thought I would - ouch on the credit card :eyes: but, oh soooo lovely! I can't wait to start knitting it up!!!! So - here are the pics!

Here is a grouping of 1 of each yarn:

I got 2 orders of Malabrigo in sweater quantities!!! Golden Ochre and Emerald Blue (oh, so so so so excited about this!)

Some bamboo: SWTC in a very pretty taupe - this has beautiful sheen and is so very soft, and some Plymouth Royal Bamboo in blues. Both of these are in sweater quantifies as well :oops:

And then a couple of skeins of yarns I've been wanting to try:
Tofutsies (pink & white); Noro Yoroi (puple/fuschia); Noro Sumile (browns) & Amerah Silk (lavenders). I have enough of the 2 Noros and the Amerah for a scarf and maybe gloves or a hat!

Honestly, I am a bit embarrassed by these riches :oops: but I also want to just sit in the middle of a pile of these skeins!

Now, to decide what to knit with first!!!! At least I'm motivated to get a jump on my holiday knitting! Oh what a happy package to come home to :woot:

Mine came last night too. 12 sk SWTC Karaoke in Mermaid, 11 sk malabrigo in purple mystery and 4 verdes. The malabrigo was so much more impressive than I remember from when I touched at my LYS. I didn't think to take pics for y'all. Instead I made a big pile in the living room and burried myself in it, lol.

Ok, actually, I went through every pattern book and magazine I had and tried to decide what I'm making with which.

I had planned to make the Interweave Knits tilted duster with the purple mystery, and it looks like the gauge will work. I have to swatch tonight just to make sure.

No way! This is the internet, it is a pay attention free zone. Because if you start paying attention then I will start having to pay attention and I don't think I'm ready for that!

:chair:I agree with you. I make enough mistakes even when I'm paying attention.

I have a question. I placed two orders back to back. The first one was for 10 sk's of tufotsies yarn. The other one is malabingo. Well I got my first package today and it only had 4 sk's of the sock yarn in it, but I was charged for all 10. Does anyone have the phone number for knit2purl2? I think I need to call them.

I don't have her #. Maybe somebody that has received their order will reply.

I would just email her jody@knit2purl2.com I just placed an another order and she emailed right back.
