Mailbag


Another week over... it was a busy one! I got some neat stuff in the mail this week, namely a copy of Purls Forever (by Jonelle Raffino of SWTC) in which I have 2 patterns, and also a nice big box of yarn for my next few designs for them! Under the book is the sweater on which I'm currently sewing buttons and popping in the mail next week- just a peek! It's in SWTC Inspiration (Soysilk/alpaca) which wasn't my favorite yarn to work with at first, but as I worked I found it softer and softer, so all is well. It's got a nice fuzziness to it too.




In the box is SWTC Gianna (Soysilk/wool) which works up nice and fast (think I'll do that one next) and also Rock and Craft from the Vickie Howell Collection. I hadn't seen Rock yet and wasn't expecting such a soft yarn, seeing as though it's 30% hemp! It's nice, and I love the colors.

That yarn looks yummy! I think I might have to order some of the Vickie Howell line. Have fun with it.

Hope you enjoy the ROCK! Keep me posted on what you knit up with it. I'd love to see it in whatever FO you choose to turn it in to! :-)xo, Vickie
