KMKS Fabulous Package!

My Knit Mitt Swap Kit arrived yesterday, courtesy of the wonderful Jaci at Confessions of a Knitting Diva. I love everything in this wonderful swap! The bag she knit me was on the top of the box when I opened it, and it immediately made me *gasp*! I love the color, the pattern, the handle, the button, it's so soft... Did I mention I love it already? I don't carry a whole lot of stuff in a purse, and I can see me using this as an everyday thing instead of a project bag! (Yes, I love it that much!) I also got two bags of Werthers, one hard candy, one soft caramels, a bottle of wool wash, a twined mitten pattern (something totally new to me -- can't wait to really read the booklet over and get started, they look amazing!), two skeins of Cascade 220 (can't tell in the pic but it's black and brown ragg #9412, gorgeous!), and a bonus skein of Cherry Tree Hill in Martha's Vineyard. I eyed that color before. I'm thinking another pair of these.


Dontcha just love the handle?!


And this gorgeous button!


I was like a kid in a candy store yesterday when I opened this. Thank you, thank you, thank you sooooo much, Jaci!

Think I will wind the sock yarn tonight and start my next socks. I started Newfoundland mittens for the boys. The first time they were going to be too snug for the Littlest One, so I ripped them out. Started again, looked at the picture I have of them, decided to rip back to the cuff and try it a little different, and now I'm chugging along. I seem to be getting a little more "stretch" in my two slipped stitches. The picture I have it looks tighter. This is my first time knitting these, so I'll just keep going. Maybe I'll get better at it on the next pair.

Happy knitting!

What a great package! I think I'd probably use that bag as an everyday bag as well.
