NascarKnitter Yarn Swap...THANK YOU MICHELE!!

This is my package from my swap partner in the KnittingNascarFans group. I have to say..."Michele, you ROCK!!!!" She did such an awesome job picking out things for my package. All colors and fibers I love. A beautiful set of stitch markers and a couple of decals of my favorite driver, DALE JR! If anyone knows Dale, please give him my best. :) I don't care what he drives, what color it is or what his number might be...I will be a Dale Jr fan forever. Sorry, got a little carried away there. lol Oh, and a small bottle of freshwater cucumber body lotion that smells so good.

Here's a close up of the stitch markers. They were made a lady named Meredith Boven. She obviously does awesome work. Again, Michele picked the right colors. I love earthy colors and these are too pretty to use. Someday, I will force myself to put them to use. For now, they sit on my desk so I can look at them.

This is a not too good close up of the Malabrigo kettle dyed pure merino wool yarn she picked out for me. She even did the job of winding for me since I don't have a yarn winder. The color is Oceanos. This picture DOES NOT do it justice. I have been looking around today for the perfect pattern for this yarn. It's so soft and I can't wait to get it knitted up. I just gotta find that one pattern that screams for this yarn. I still cannot get over how soft it is.
The two balls of cotton yarn will become dishcloths, probably the DW since it shows off the colors so well.
She also included a very nice card with a picture of her sweet dog, Matsi. I'm not a dog expert so I don't know what kind of dog he is but he is solid white and a beautiful animal. Hey Matsi!

Mandi, Your cards are beautiful. These are so much nicer than the ones in the stores. I don't have the patience or the talent for cards but you so obviously do!
