Loopy Ewe Order Arrived!

My extravangant order from The Loopy Ewe came - lovingly undone and rummaged through by Customs, with pamphlets from Australian Quarantine and all squished up again with sticky tape - THANKS CUSTOMS!!

I ordered some patterns (with bonus pressies and samples from Sheri at the Loopy Ewe, as she does with all customers!)...

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Sage - I LOVE this colour...
Indian Summer Supersock Yarn by Cherry Tree Hill, Louet Gems in scrummy Cranberry...
Blue Faced Leicester Fingering Weight Yarn by Gypsy Knits in Lavendar Blue pictured with laceweight 100% silk Schaefer Yarn Andrea in Dian Fossey colourway...
WPI Tool from Nancy's Knit Knacks - I already have one of these but wanted a couple dotted around the house near my various wheels as I use them all the time. If you are a spinner, these are great and come with a handy little yarn classification chart (You could make you own, of course...)
And stitckeepers for my sock dpn needles - these are great little doovers - much more effective than the little rubbery thingies I have been using previously, and safer for little kiddies who like to delve into knitting bags, as they cover the points.

Great service from The Loopy Ewe, and I will be returning soon (Naughty!). Postage was only US$13.00 to Australia, which is very good compared to other stores!
Lots of intellecual and writing pursuits happening as well - attended a Jane Austen Society Conference (yes, there is such a thing - it was great!) and have a NSW Writer's Centre workshop coming up soon. It is good to stretch the brain muscles.
Tonight - my son's first performance as a drummer. Proud moment...

I ordered some smooshy sock in the Loopy Ewe sneak up last week - can't wait to have a squishy feel of it, LOL! I ordered some of those little needle caps from her in my last order, too.

I'm going to have to get some of those DPN protector thingies - do you know if they're available in Australia, or just from The Loopy Ewe?

Ooh, that silk laceweight is gorgeous, what great colors! I think that Andrea might be one of my favorite laceweight yarns.
