Toys and Treasures

Sometime it is really great to get to work and find treasures on the cabinet outside your door. Apparently someone else made a mail run and was kind enough to get my stuff two. There was a box from AudioBookStand with two new audio books (Dark of the Night – Suzanne Brockmann and Fireside – Susan Wiggs) in that nice, convienient MP3 format. It doesn’t help for traveling, but it certainly makes loading onto my computer and iPod worlds faster.

And then there was the package from Kaleidoscope Yarns. There was this lovely messenger like project bag.

along with various makers (Off Hand Design, Lantern Moon and Susan Todd) of needle holder bags on sale.

and a bamboo circular needle set that has true US 6 size needle (4.25mm) so I now have the full range of needles with which to face any pattern written in any decade.

aren’t they pretty? and in such a nice holder.

Since I ran out of my other yarn – I went back and did a few more repeats here –

meaning I just have to start the shoulder shaping. I don’t really care for the arm hole finishing, so I will probably I-cord it at the end to give a more finished look. Not through the first ball yet and I have two more, so at least I will be fine for amount on yarn on this vest.

So I spent the evening sorting needles into cases and tucking those back into my lovely messenger bag while being completely disgusted with the vids I attempted to watch.
