I wanted to share my goodies (in picture only!), however, I must apologize because I only have my cell phone camera to record images with. There were far more things to photograph, but the process of taking the photo, emailing it to myself, copy the photo to my picture harddrive, and then downloading the photo to post is laborious at the very least. So, without further ado, you are looking at:
2 skeins Rainforest (August 2007) colorway, Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock, JBW exclusive
2 skeins Panda Cotton, Sable colorway
2 skeins Blue Skys Alpaca Chunky hand dyes, blue colorway
2 skeins Manos del Uruguay Cotton, red colorway
one ginormous skein of Trendsetter eyelash in pink/orange (far left edge of photo)
and not pictured:
Ann Norling Perfect Tee Pattern
Blue Sky Alpaca Reversible Hat and Gloves Pattern
Knitting at Knoon Blossom Pattern
Pick-up-sticks Sushi Wallet Kit
Berroco Suede slipper kit in lilac
KnitWhits cat toy kit
Full set of Needles in their own case (CPY)
Mountain Colors tote bag
Super Yummy Smelling Soap (?)
one copy of Interweave Knits Summer 07
and two jolly rancher candies (no joke!)
I haven't yet started knitting with any of the above, but I am bound and determined to finish the Knitting for Peace messenger bag before I leave the country so I can use it as my carry-on luggage.
More later, and many thanks to all the congratulations and well wishes I received!

check it out, you can purchase the yarn directly from the website, and because it will be felted you can take it with you and not even worry about those little mistakes that may sneak in.

(insert happy dance here)
I won the Jimmy Beans Wool pattern submission contest! This news is totally 12 hours old, but I've had one of those days, and it nearly slipped my mind to put the good news out on Procrastaknitter-I had to take a study break from my studies to clear my head of linguistic jargon and peruse the pages of JBW to decide what patterns I'll spend my store credit on. (happy dance) I've narrowed it down to just patterns, since there is already so much yarn in the prize pack, and I definately won't have a shortage of yarn in Peru-but I could potentially run out of ideas for knitting. (still doing the happy dance) The pattern will not be available online until next week, but yayYAYyay, my pattern will be online next week. Next stop, the moon!
(happy dance my a** off)
I'd be posting pictures of the happy dance, but unfortunately someone saw fit to enter our little home on Sunday, and stole my brand new camera. My two week love affair is over. And now I have to use even more of my scholarship money to go purchase another camera before I leave in four weeks. Sad.
(but I'm still happy dancing)
