lucky girl

So, I was lamenting to the lovely Madge that we could no longer get knit.1 in Australia, and how that was particularly crappy given that they have just re-vamped the whole magazine and it's 100 times better than the previous editions.

So what did the lady do?

yes, arriving on Christmas Eve was this generous little package, consisting of not only the mag in question, but a skein of STR "Dragon's Dance".

I know. She rocks, right?!

but my good fortune was not limited to this little treat, oh no.


Katie surprised me with this gorgeous skein of sportweight merino, which is the combined product of the talents of Ewe Give Me the Knits & Fiestywench. I love it, it is what I consider the perfect green, as my projects page can attest :)

What better way to start a new year?

Yep, your 2009 is indeed off to flying start... I am wrapped up in laziness and have done little but read and eat and sleep.
