I got my kit a while ago, but never got around to uploading the pictures! Here they are, in all their fibery glory. =)
I woke up late because I had gone to the midnight showing of Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, and what do I find?
Mittens! They’re from the Fall 2010 issue of Interweave Knits–the Bavarian Tulip Mitts.
Then I unwrapped these:
Plymouth Galway in a color almost exactly like the Cascade I had ogled last time I was in the LYS, but didn’t get, and my jaw dropped when I saw the other one–it’s a gorgeous skein of Malabrigo Rios (my first Malabrigo!) in blue and green.
Mints–Pep-O-Mint, Wint-O-Green, and Andes Candies, the last two of which I used to buy for myself, but haven’t in a while, and hot chocolate mix–perfect for how cold it’s been lately!
Little bottle of Eucalan for me to try–I normally use Kookaburra so it’ll be cool to try something new.
Fall 2010 Interweave Knits–I used to buy this for myself but haven’t in a while. I found a little card inside next to the pattern for the Brattleboro hat, which my kit is themed around! =)
Patterns–Ailbe mittens, the supercabled Knotty but Nice hat, and a pattern for thrummed mittens which I’ve wanted to make for a while–I’ve currently got one on the needles, cobbled together from a few different patterns. =)
OODLES of other stuff–KA circ, Brittany DPNs (never tried these, so that’ll be cool), plenty of tapestry needles (I always lose my other ones!), Peppermint Wafer bars, cool wooden buttons, sock-shaped point protectors, double-ended stitch holders (will have to experiment with these to see how they work), and Eucalan lint-remover sheets.
Needless to say, I am SO SPOILED! Thank you to Minerva Wood/yogaknot! =)
