I love boxes at my door!

Can I say that one of my favorite things is to come home to this...
The first box was soap samples from Dawn for the SAFF goodie bags! They are so adorable!
The 2nd box was my Eat.Sleep.Knit order that I ordered on Tuesday I believe. It's my first order from them and I'm already a fan! First off I started their yarn marathon or yarnathon, which they track every yard of yarn that you purchase from them and you get prizes along your yarnathon! They also have Power and Sweater Boosts to help you reach mile markers. I got a sweater boost because I purchase 6 skeins of yarn. Look at this cute badge!
I hit my first mile marker with my purchase so I got my 1M badge and a Marathon Welcome Packet.
The packet contained 2 patterns, sample of yarns they carry and more!
I also got a pen, a button, and a Yarn Lotto where I won a $5 credit!My purchase was some LOVELY malabrigo in Burgundy for my Corona Sweater! I will admit I spent part of my lunch break winding a ball up so I could cast on during a training call! So, this is already cast on but I decided after consulting with Jasmin from the Knitmoregirls podcast that I probably should knit the ribbing on smaller needles so waited until I got home to start the ribbing. So, I have a little bit more time and then I'm heading to the Rays game tonight with Monica. We plan to knit, eat and watch some baseball!

Tomorrow, I have a spinning meet up for my guild and then plan to spend the afternoon recording a podcast, hanging with the pups, and catching up on shows!

Hope you have a great weekend!! Happy Knitting!!


  1. What fun! I'd say all I got in the mail today were drugs from my mail order pharmacy... but some Three Irish Girls yarn from my Pick of the Knitter club snuck in there... along with a cute dachshund hoodie... :)

  2. That Corona is going to look fabulous on you and especially in that gorgeous colorway! I love getting packages too....its so much fun. Hope everyone likes them and that you have a wonderful time...can't wait to hear all about it and lots of pics! hugs

  3. I'm definitely going to have to place an order with them! I love the little extras that yarn shops send. :-)

  4. I've heard Eat. Sleep. Knit. is fantastic but I keep forgetting to try them out. Your haul - yarn and the extras - looks fantastic.

  5. I always love getting stuff in the mail!!! I love the color of that yarn!!

  6. I blogged about a box delivery today as well! Omygosh! If I had that kind of yarn deal, I'd be buried in floor-to-ceiling yarn!! It does sound tempting, though...


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
