Oh boy, do I have mail. Ray is finally getting used to all the little packages that arrive in the mail, because I see craft things online that I want. Fortunately, most patterns I purchase are pdf downloads, so there aren't as many deliveries as there could be! I thought I would share a few of my recent purchases with you.
From TLE (The Loopy Ewe) I got the Lace Rib Raglan sweater pattern in plus sizing. It is a top down pattern, which is my preferred way to make a sweater.Along with the pattern I got their Safe Socks mesh bag. I will be using it not only for my hand knit socks, but also for washing some alpaca fiber that I have, which needs to be cleaned before I can spin it.
Sorry about the fuzzy photo, but this cute little stitch marker was included in my TLE package as a Loopy extra. I love the little surprises that they add to my purchases!
The following purchases are from Knitcellaneous. I just discovered this retailer while searching for inexpensive shawl sticks. Theirs are the least expensive that I could find anywhere, and yet they are a very nice quality! They were only $5.00 USD each. I am very pleased with them. I also got their kitchener stitch dog tag to remind me of how to do it.
Another little package arrived yesterday from TLE, but I haven't taken pics yet. I think I will wait until the package that I just got e-mail notice about arrives and then take pics all at once.
