Yarny Birthday

My birthday isn't actually until next week, but all the yarny goodness I have been getting in the mail lately has me feeling celebratory!
This is my Fabulous bag from the Spring Felted Bag Exchange. KM made it for me and even posted the pattern on her blog. I love it! I have had it for a while now, but have been awful about posting lately.

Included with the bag was this cute little champagne colored makeup pouch. With yummy lip gloss! (And Satin Lips, too. How cool was it that I got hooked up with a Mary Kay gal?)

Here is a close up on the satin stitching on the edges of the bag. Nifty, nifty! KM, if you see this, the gals in my knitting group love the bag!!!
And now for more recent yarny yummies...Bubblesknits picked me (with the help of the random number generator) in her contest! I am so thrilled! I recieved some amazing stuff. A whole bag of Softwist in a pearly color, a knitting themed novel, sock yarn (!), panda cotton (more sock yarn!), stitch markers, and postie notes!
I am giddy! This will be the yarniest birthday to date!
It is really something, though. Before finding the online and hometown groups of knitters, I never realized how sweet people could be. Knitters really are great people. The generosity in the gifts I have recieved and the enthusiasm for the gifts I have sent is amazing. I am really glad and proud to be a part of this community of amzing and talented women.
More pics soon! I promise!
(I'm almost done with the first Sockapalooza sock!)

I'm glad everything got there ok and you like your prize! Sorry for stuffing the yarn in the Ziploc bag, but I'm always terrified that moisture will get it during shipping. LOL

Happy early birthday (in case I forget to say it next week)!
