Thanks To iwouldratherbeknitting
iwouldratherbeknitting sent me a package with some nice yarn, bamboo circs from Korea, and cool stitch markers. I just wanted to say thanks to her, I think they're great and look forward to trying out the circs as I've never worked with bamboo needles before.

Very nice yarns.

You'll probably like the bamboo circs, especially if you're working with a slippery yarn.

Nice thing to do, IWRBK!

Those look like the bamboo circs I use, and I LOVE them! I have one set of Addi's, and I like them too, but I love my bamboos best. I also had a set of tiny bamboo circs made for sock knitting.

Nice package! *drools*

Glad that you finally got home and had a chance to open your package- glad that my 'extra' bamboo knitting needles will be used- have you had a chance to use them yet?

AND, the black yarn in the photo.. in this message is the BLACK YARN that I got special for you to knit w/ the noro yarn... it's a soft yarn and might be perfect for some 'colorwork' designs in a hat or even a scarf?

I haven't been able to use a computer for days-- and the public library computer (that I am using) won't let me reply to private messages... and I hope that it will let me reply to this message?? I have my fingers crossed and my head tilted just so..
