happy things

Wow. The mailman has made me very happy lately. All sorts of fun stuff popping up in my mailbox. Melana sent me my very first skein of sundara yarn. I have never knit with this before, and am very excited to cast on for a pair of socks using one of the patterns she also included. And, she must have known how dry my hands get, because there was also a little tin of the most magical lotion made just for knitters! Thank you so much Melana, you are just too sweet.
I did a little swap with Megan. Look what I got! Soap, bath products and lip balms, she included one for Libby. Check out the whole line here. Thank you, Megan. I love it!
A while ago, I won a little contest over at freckled nest. Leigh Ann is always having contests and giveaways. A super cute bag (for my knitting) along with stickers and magnets that look like candy! Thank you so much Leigh Ann!
And, when Kim mailed the malabrigo a while back, she also included pom-pom makers. Have you all ever used these? She sent four different sizes. We were like a pom-pom making factory over here. They are so much fun to make.
The thankful tree got a quick spray of white paint, and it is now a pom-pom tree. Thank you, Kim! You provided us with hours of entertainment.

Oh, my gosh! How adorable that tree is. And I love the new banner!! The Sundara yarn is such a pretty color. The soap is packaged so nicely, I can almost smell it right through the PC! And a very cute bag too... YAY - goodies!

Can you tell me about the lotion, Leslie? I think that would be a great gift for my knitting friends. My Ballerina made her debut last weekend in Boston. I adore her. Thanks again for your help. Your pom pom tree is so precious. I can't wait to see your socks. That yarn is fabulous.

hello lovely leslie! i'm glad your mailbox has been filled to the brim lately; i know of no one more worthy.

i LOVE the goods soapworks of athens stuff! i was wishing i'd had the good memory to include some of her soaps in my families' holiday packages, but i didn't.

That Sundara yarn looks very enticing!

And, what a cute idea - a pom-pom tree! That would be a nice way to use up some leftover yarn, too. Thanks for posting that. I have a pom-pom maker but have never used it.....
