Too tired, but had to show this

I spent the whole day working at BMFA, but I can't tell you what I did, yet. I am exhausted though!! When I got home an Airmail package was on the doorstep. YEAH!! A while back, I saw on another knitter's blog a sweater she was making, (third one over on the top row) so I asked her if she would get the pattern for me and I would repay her. She suggested a swap, so I sent her yarn, cookies, and other trinkets, and she sent me this! An entire book of patterns. She told me the type of yarn, but it's not easy for me to convert what they use into what is available here is the US. So, we arranged another swap. She would get the yarn for me in the color I wanted, and I would order some dance tights for her ballerina dd. I have so many projects right now, but I love this color and just want to start knitting on it now. I have a birthday project due in one month exactly that I have to get done first, then maybe I can start my sweater.

Oh, the color is lavendar, but it looks more blue in the picture.

I'm glad you liked it - I can never get purples of any shade to photograph well either. I picked up the little aussie souveniers on a trip to the city the day I posted the parcel. Enjoy :)

Hope everything went well at BMFA. I bet you're tired! But what a wonderful thing to find when you got home. I do hope I get a chance to see that pattern.

Hi Tammy, this is Corinne again. I found you just by surfing! What I started at my "neice's" blog and just kept clicking "Next Blog" and ended up at your wonderful photos. What luck! I look forward to your post on scenic Oregon! ~ Corinne

HI Tammy,

Just had to comment on this: I *love* Bendigo Woolen Mills' yarn! I try to order from them at least once a year. The prices are very reasonable, and you get those lovely huge balls!

I *think* they are distributed in the US (in smaller units) by Russi Sales. Check out their website.
