Monkey Sock, monkey sock!

Look at the BEAUTIFUL socks I received from my new friend, Eva! Something funny about these socks? The ones I knit Eva are almost the same color and fiber content as the ones she knit for me. We have found that we have many things in common and have enjoyed getting to know each other.
As you can see, Eva has spoiled me rotten! All the items in my Monkey Package were wrapped with care and creativity....simply lovely. One of the 'clever' monkey items Eva included was my very own "Monkey Edition" of a British County Living magazine. I have enjoyed reading it in my bubble bath each evening and discovering 'monkeys' placed throughout the magazine. Fun! She also sent a book by an author she loves hoping I will do the same. I'm looking forward to reading this new author.

The Cookie A. pattern I received was Marilinda and I cannot wait to knit it. In addition to sending some lovely yarn that I believe will be perfect for Marilinda, Eva also sent some Kaffe Fassett yarn in the 'EARTH' colorway. Check out the lovely hankies each skein was wrapped with - they are now in my purse.

I couldn't wait casting on with my new yarn. I'm participating in Lolly's Project Spectrum and we are just finishing up knitting with 'earth' colors. These socks will be perfect and I think I finish them just in time!

I hope you have all had fun with the swap and have been as fortunate as I to have made a new friend! It looks like everyone is receiving wonderful packages.
