Am I Lucky or What?!

I mean, really, I got the perfect Secret Pal gift: green laceweight alpaca. And once I got past drooling over the alpaca, I found all the other really cool stuff in the box, too!
Like a nifty little neckwarmer (I couldn't get a good picture of it, so I'm gonna have to wait for the hubby to do his photo magic), cool little stacking boxes to hold my beads (because you can never have too many places to put beads, don'tcha know!), fun little pens, lavender bath gel (I love lavender!), candy, tea...it was too much fun to open it.

It was definitely the highlight of my day!

Oh, and I might have already broken into the laceweight to do a beaded Muir swatch! Here's a little photo teaser.

I'm afraid it's a bit difficult to see the beads on it. I'll have a full beaded chart up this weekend, but for now, have fun with the swatch chart! :)

And in other news...
AgnesB finished her Muir! Isn't it lovely!?

Romi- Did I see a Ritter Sport in there?

That's a great idea to do a Muir with beads, I'm bead obsessed!

Ah Ha.. Now I am going to have to knit the Muir with beads on it. Luckily for me the yarn store is next to the bead store. What type of beads do you like btw?

Oh, wow--beads? I just finished spinning a skein of alpaca/silk which turned out pretty well, and I'm thinking of using it for a Muir. Beads would be really pretty with it...

Yet another reason to want to be Rosemary when I grow up.

I totally want the beaded Muir Chart.

Lovely colour! Over here, anything with lavender is reserved for handwashing handknits ;-)

What awesome yarn and gifties. I am hopefully to get my Muir swatched up soon. It is going to be so beautiful thanks to your awesome design.

What a great package!

I wore a handknit sweater to work yesterday, kept closed by one of your sterling pins and I got so many compliments on it! People would stop me in the middle of the hallway to comment on the pin and ask me where I got it from. I smiled and told them that my friend makes them and gave them your web address.

You do such incredible work!

I love beads in my lace too. So pretty even if you just see a sparkle.

That's a gorgeous swatch! And it confirms my theory that Muir would look equally lovely in a smooth yarn.
