Well, now it's my turn. My magic yarn ball arrived in the mail this week, and it turns out my partner is Sassysmom. This was a secret partner swap, and she was very good at keeping her identity a secret. I had no idea it was her! Here are some pictures of my little girl helping me unpack it from the box.
The color is a bit off in the photos, as we had just been taking sunset photos outside and I forgot to re-adjust my settings.
This yarn is a blue dream - lots of different shades of blues, as well as some purples mixed in. Sassysmom actually got it bare from Knit Picks, then hand dyed it herself. I just love hand dyed yarn, I find it such a joy to work with.
I spent a good deal of time staring at this yarn, trying to decide if I will unwind it all now to see what's inside, or get the 'real' experience of discovering each item as I knit... and call me silly, but I think that's the best part. So, do I unwind it now, and see what's in there? Or do I pick a pattern and see what comes out as I knit? Decisions, decisions... what do you think?
