A very dear friend of mine, S, recently sent me a box of gorgeous goodies all the way from Fringe in the US of A.

Behold... (and be prepared to drool all over your keyboard)

Mountain Colors Bearfoot ~ Wild Raspberry

Mountain Colors Bearfoot ~ Wildflower

Fleece Artist Merino ~ "Raspberry" (FA don't name their colours)

Fleece Artist Merino ~ Purples, teal, blue
Note: This particular colourway was chosen for me by S's super-gorgeous young assistant J. These are my favourite colours! Thanks J!!! (your Mum will give you a big hug, from me).

Pink Cottage Yarn (Exclusive Hand-Dyed yarn from Fringe)
[The colours are a little more subtle than in this pic. Lovely "Autumny/Fall" colours]

Austermann Step #05 (with Aloe Vera & Jojoba Oil)

Plus... a Mountain Colors "Ripple Socks" pattern and a couple of sets of ChiaoGoo Bamboo DPNs (size 1, 6inch ~ nice short ones).

Now as you can imagine, this Aussie sock knitter was (and still is) totally over the moon when she set eyes upon this lovely sock yarn that's not available here in Australia. It's super soft and marvellously squishy and I can't wait to knit with it. (Got to wait until the New Year though, then all the "secret" knitting will be finished)

I have to say thank you to Fringe, S's LYS (Local Yarn Store). S isn't a knitter (don't hold that against her!) so the lovely ladies at Fringe were incredibly helpful and as a result, everything is just what I would have chosen if I'd visited the store myself :D I'm positively green with envy that Fringe is so close to S lol (although I'm sure my bank account isn't!)

A HUGE thanks to S (and J)! I'm beyond delighted with my goodies.

  • Hey Jane, glad you enjoyed! J had a lot of fun helping, and playing with the gorgeous Ark they have there for little assistants just his age. Here's hoping they are as much fun to knit with as they were to

  • How lucky are you! Those yarns are just gorgeous (my fave is the wildflower colour) although they are all wonderful!
