Final set has arrived.

I received my fifth and final set of stitch markers in todays mail. Thank you to Brenda for the beautiful markers, the candies and the socks. I am sorry but there will be no photos as the camera is dying a very slow death.....I really need to purchase a new battery or better yet a new camera!

Last Set

Hi Everyone! My last set of stitchmarkers arrived last week, but I didn't want to post until I got all of my outgoing sets into the mail. (Finally!)

These lovely green markers are from Angie P. The drops have little pink flowers in them that you can't see from this picture. I wish I could bend wire triangles like Angie did here. (I always break the bead when I try to make the bend). She also included a handy tool that has a hook on one end and a point at the other, kind of like a combination knitting needle and crochet hook. I bet I can use it for cables, and I know it will come in handy for fixing knitting mistakes. Sure wish I had it on the train today, I tried to kitchener stitch my socks with a paper clip! I also love the Grapefruit Ginger hand cream from Restoration Hardware (I didn't know they made hand cream!!).

Thank you so much Angie!
