I received a package yesterday. It was full of gorgeous things.
I won a prize on riizu’s blog back in December. One transit strike, an international border, and assorted bits of life later, the package is here!
Let’s start with the non-fiber fun. First up, Rooibos tea! I know what I’m having tomorrow morning at work.
There was this really cute button in the bottom of the bag.
Oh, you’ve gotten a peek at the yarn! It’s Mirasol Hacho. I have a little of this in blues from a trip to the coast last spring, so I knew it was yummy stuff.
Here’s a better look.
One more look, up close and personal.
The Hacho was the only thing I was expecting, so this was all quite a bonanza. But the crowning glory is this.
I’ve never seen it before. It’s Marisol Tupa, 50% merino and 50% silk. This is a glorious shade of red, with that subtle sheen that only comes with silk. It’s beautiful, and there are two skeins. I’ll have to find something worthy to make with it.
Thank you so much, Elizabeth!
