Goodies in the Mail, etc.

Yesterday, Sirdar #319 California Girls Luxury Soft Cotton arrived from McA Direct. I have to get some DK yarn, but I'd like to do the shawl first and then one of the shrugs.

Also, my purl order arrived (nicely packaged as you can see in the pic). I had ordered a couple of 8 inch long circular needles for making fingerless gloves in the round. I knew the needles would be small, but was still surprised how tiny they looked in person!!

I cast on right away for the fingerless gloves in Last Minute Knitted Gifts and the first round was hard going, but it got easy by the third or fourth row. I actually managed to finish one glove last night!

Here's another picture of my garden. I know I've been posting a lot of flower pics lately, but I can't help it! This is the best time of year in the garden :-) The pink and white flowers are centranthus and the blue is penstemon.

Hello again! Thank you for your comments on my site. It was so nice to hear from you.

Your garden is beautiful (June is the best month for New England, I think). My roses are out and the monkshood is going to open soon.

Isn't it fun to get knitting things in the mail?!

Roses are so wonderful and I really want to create a little rose garden/arbor in my yard... maybe next spring. I'd love to see pics of your flowers on your blog!

Yes, I love getting knitting things in the mail:-)
