From left to right: Shepherd's Wool Crazy DK, Cestari Traditional 2-ply in two natural colors, and two different colors by Republic of Wool! I got the first three at Pearl Fiber Arts, and the Republic of Wool from Twisted. Do I know what I'm doing with any of them? Not really. Am I super excited anyways?? YES!! They're all amazing in their own ways. I can't wait to try them out!
In addition to snagging some yummy yarn, I also received a few lovely birthday gifts while in Portland. :o) The intriguing box at the top there is a wooden inlay puzzle box from Japan. It was very difficult to figure out! I was stumped for a short time there. :op
The dress and necklace I received from Marilyn. She actually nabbed herself some matching stuffs, so one day we'll have to dress up as twins! Though, her strawberry is white, so I guess we won't be perfect matches. ;o)
