Awhile back, Ann of Mason-Dixon Knitting was on a cleaning/sorting/tossing adventure at her house. She had a contest to see who could guess how many trash bags of stuff she was tossing. I entered...I didn't win. But the winner got a giant trash bag of yarn...the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Now Danielle, who did win had been on a plan of finishing UFOs and decided that rather than add all this to her stash she would share it. So she had a contest too..to guess what she was making. I entered that, and again I was wrong.
So the winner got to pick out what she wanted and then Danielle put the other names on slips of paper and this time I was one of the winners of the Good/Bad/Ugly yarn stash.
So today it arrived: May I present the Ugly complete with sticky note from Ann. This is 5 spools, 160 feet of floresent nylon twine. Kite string, level string...very sturdy string! Someone had seen a pattern in Magknits for a dog collar and leash so Zoey may be very well decked out in the future!
But that's not all. A nice skein of cotton for a ball band cloth...and pattern. I love the colors!
And, because Danielle felt sorry for me, I also got this marvelous Rowan Kid Classic (70% Lambswool, 26% kid mohair, and 4% nylon) Do you see? ROWAN! OMG I never thought I would have Rowan yarn. It's soooo soft! I've just about squished it to death already. And there was candy (sorry it's all gone) and to top it off some hand made stitch markers from Danielle. They are wonderful. She's really got a lot of talent!
So, that's how my week started off...and I plan on it getting even better. It will be hard to top today though.
