yarn in the mail

A couple of goodies came in the mail this week, in the form of wooly goodness.

A little while ago I happend upon a great deal on craftsy.com for various skeins of Malabrigo Chunky at 40% off. Thinking these might turn into some hats, like this one since I had such success with cables, or a matching set of one of these for the girls.

My Christmas present to myself was a subscription to Tanis’ Year in Colour Club – 6 gorgeous one-of-a-kind yarns with a pattern from some great designers. Delightful, right? The January yarn arrived, called Truffle. I love the jewel tones throughout.

The pattern by Hannah Fettig of Knitbot looks charming. I can’t wait to try it.

Also, found these adorable Valentines crafts via How About Orange this week, which I couldn’t help but share with you:

:: diy macaron coin purse – wouldn’t they make the sweetest Valentine’s gifts or loot bag gift for kids?
:: free printables for Valentine’s Day – perfect for spreading some love around

  1. Great minds think alike! I also just got a great deal on Craftsy for some Cascade 128 in charcoal and my TFA skein arrived last night. Thanks for the link to V-Day crafts. Happy knitting.
