Goodies in the Mail

Got some goodies in the mail today. First off are my stitch markers from She sent me a little bag to keep them in, plus the little red bag she shipped them in, plus she sent an extra Piggy cuz I broke my first one. (He's a decoration on a shelf in the living room now.) Isn't the little Froggy cute? I got flat form rings this time. They're a little bigger than the spring form rings, which is what I wanted. (Yes, that's Pumba's hind end!)

Second was my stitch markers from Aija's Etsy shop. These are so nice! They will become my sock stitch markers cuz they have nice little rings. She also sent me a Special Sneak Peek of The Friday Night Knitting Club. (Read about it here.) I just love the little hand-made paper card and envelope she sent.

I do have a couple of FOs. First are two crappy pictures of my Irish Hiking Scarf for the Red Scarf Project. It's really a dark red, made with Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds. The second blurry picture is a better one of the color, and at least you can see the cables in it. (It's been windy and rainy lately, so I couldn't get outside for a good picture. Now this is sealed and ready to mail.)

My next FO is a plain old hat and mittens set, child sized, for the Oldest One's school raffle draw. That completes my contribution to the monthly draws for this school year. This is also Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds. The picture is a little dark, it's a bit lighter blue.

I don't know about you, but this does not look overly comfortable to me.

Happy knitting!

Those are THE CUTEST stitch markers - almost makes me want to use real stitch markers (I just use yarn tied in a knot - BORING!)

Your IHS came out nicely. I have some yarn I could do another one with.
I love the stitch markers, but never having used anything than the plain plastic rings, do the dangling parts get in the way or tangled up in your yarn?

LOL ;) Cats are just a scream - one wouldn't believe where they'll find a place to sleep - and they even seem to find it comfortable!
I really love the stitch markers, they look super-cute - and your hat- and mitten-set turned out so awesome! Great job!!
