It's Here!

Finally! My Natural Dye Studio yarn packages made it here last evening, and it couldn't have come at a better time! 

Turns out I'm still sick which is never any fun, but at least I have a good excuse to sit on the couch all day and knit with my new yarn! Here is a look at what I got, and what it will become:

These are the three mini skein packs that I purchased. They will eventually be this shawl (must be a ravelry member to take a peek!) 

This is the start of a communal knit blanket I am working on with a bunch of other lovely ladies who are huge fans of NDS yarn! I did not buy this yarn, rather it was sent to me, and I will be sending it back to Amanda (dyer of NDS yarn) for her to turn into a beautiful mitered square blanket! Currently I have 6 of approximately 28 squares completed.

Last but not least, (and all because Mitsy asked to see a picture) here is the early early start of a hexagon blanket I am working on in NDS Caress Alpaca/Silk DK yarn. I've actually been saving up skeins of this yarn for at least a year now. I was never really sure what I wanted to do with it, I just knew that I loved it. Since learning to crochet, and discovering this awesome hexagon tutorial I've made the leap into crochet blankets! Here's hoping it turns out beautiful!

And that is what I am doing while I focus on getting better. (let's hope that is maybe tomorrow, as I am really tired of being sick)

OMG, I can't believe that you are hooked! LOL :)
Well, first of all, I wish you felt better but with the thought of knitting and crocheting all day makes being ill bearable I suppose.
You're a machine my dear - can''t believe the amount of things you produce!
I'll get back to your novel this weekend! Haha! :)

Haha Mitsy I am not a machine, just stuck on the couch for hours and hours on end giving me the time to make all this stuff! :P Sorry about the novel!

I just love getting supplies in the mail, don't you?
Everything looks great the colors of the shawl!!!

Thought of you in my travels to the KOP Mall yesterday! Had to pick up some photos & my little guy was in need of a Lego Store Fix ;)

Hope you're feeling well soon!
