I scored for Christmas!

I hope I don't tick my mom off, but this Christmas was the best one from her in YEARS! Dad and mom went on a cruise around the tip of South America. While there, she brought back a couple of gems. Here's a whole bunch of mystery yarn. It looks like I will be able to try to hand dye it - way cool!

Then she gave me a weaving loom with some weaving thread.

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this, but it's really cool. I'm thinking Red Scarf project.
Then she gave me some really pretty roving. I'll have to break out my drop spindle and spin this up. It's really beautiful stuff!
So mom, thank you for these WONDERFUL gifts. Beats an aroma therapy basket any day!

The other neat thing I got was a couple of knitting calendars - one is the pattern a day, the other is the SnB one.

It was a great Christmas!

Wow - way cool! How did you get your mom to buy such great knitting stuff? I was lucky to get a book!
