I couldn't resist signing up again for Round #2 of the Ravelry Malabrigo Swap :o)
And had a package waiting on me since Saturday (I really need to check my mail more often!), as it would have been the perfect sunshine for me too this past weekend!
It came all decked out in the colors I love to see! Reds and Purples! Even with a red & white notecard (Ooo-oop!).
And it was an AWESOME package from Kara!
I am SET with my chocolate and gum fix! Lurves me some Dove Caramels! (I always read the special messages on the inside!) And can never get enough of Orbit's great flavors!
The first thing I opened was the cute elephant figurine that is now currently residing on my window sill :o)
And everything was wrapped in purple and red! Including my new pair of Addi Lace Turbos in US6!!! Yah!! Yah! Yah! :o)
Did y'all see that I got 22.214.171.124 hanks of Malabrigo!! Lets take a closer look at them shall we! ;oD
The first one I opened was the Torero and so could have stopped right there!! It is THE PERFECT RED in Malabrigo!!! Finally!! My looooong lost search is OVA!!!!!! THIS is the true 'valentine red' in Malabrigo!! It is in the super bulky, my first time getting that weight in Mal! And have been wanting to try it. Can you say....."Neckwarmer!!" ;op
Then I received 3 skeins of lace weight and really wanted some light yarns for the warm weather! They came in shades of reds and purples. Believe it or not the one on the far left is also Torero in lace! Wow! What a big difference! The next one is in Cuarzo and the one above it is in Holly Hock. I like them all!!!
Kara really thought of everything for this package and "stalked" me very well! ;op
Thanks So Very Much for my Mmmmmal Crayola Box!!
