Yes, I'm wildly excited and very happy
I have been reading Jodie from Jellywares blog for a long time.
She is a lovely lady with a beautiful family
Recently she opened a shop in Cobar which sells yarn
Pity its a bit of a hike for me to visit, otherwise I could see me making fortnightly (ok weekly) visits.
While watching a video she uploaded to her blog last week, I spotted something which got me very, very excited.
Jodie mentioned that she was working on a project made with Malabrigo sock yarn.
Now this yarn has been on my radar for a very long time.
The reports from various crafty blogs has been overwhelmingly positive
But what really caught my eye was the colour she showed - a blue
Yes, I know, this is not one of my normal colours
But lately, I keep being drawn to various shades of blue to blue-greeny colours
Just not NAVY - Ugghhhh (an old school colour which turned me off)
So I jumped straight into an email and asked if she had anymore of that yarn in that colour
Yes, was her reply
So I acted fast
Now postage in Australia is expensive. Its usually cheaper to fill up PostPaks to get full value
So I did
This is what the ever so helpful, Jodie, sent me :-)))))
Blatant advertising - Jellywares Business Card in front
Malabrigo Azules - so soft and squishy
Malabrigo Terracotta - ditto
Jodie squeezed in some Beautiful buttons that blend perfectly with the Azule
And a very cute gift card - fantastic idea
THANK YOU JODIE!!!!
So guess what I have been doing while waiting (only a very small time) for this scrumptiousness to appear????
That's right perusing Ravelry for patterns - and now I am even more confused
I could just play with the yarn for a while, but I'd rather wear it :-)
