The Secret is out!

So my SP11 is Kris from Bockstark Knits. I have been reading her blog since I started knitting socks this past summer. Have you seen her socks? Really go look. Pretty cool eh? She also does the Knitters Uncensored Podcast and she has been to SnB with me spoilee Simone. Small world. Well let me tell ya she did a great job here with the package. The candy and treats have already been broken into. I love the Leibniz Minis yummy! She also sent a little travel office, a wool comb and some cute magnets. It does not stop there though. I got a great project bag she made herself. I took it to knit night last night in fact. and 2 skeins of Wollmeise sock yarn. The yarn is so beautiful and soft. I love it.

The one above you can only get from the artist in her shop. The color is Rosenrot. The color is pretty close in the pic.

The 2nd one is superwash sock yarn in Brombeere (dark). I can not tell you how much I love this colorway. Whatever I make with this will be for me! I love it! The dark red and almost black play so nice together. It is not easy to get this yarn here so I was even more excited to pull it from the bag. The gals a knit night all got a chance to pet it before I got it back in my bag and Miss V pulled out her collection of Wollmeise. Her colorway are so vivid and rich.
Thank You Kris for such a great treat. I hope to one day make socks as pretty as yours! You made my day.

oh so glad you liked it! the rosenrot one - you *can* get rosenrot, just not in the 6-ply wool. she is phasing out the 6-ply, so she only carries it at markets.

the leibniz minis - my absolute favorite snack. i probably gained 5 pounds just from that!!!

Yay for awesome spoilers! If anyone deserves to be spoiled (or as we say in the South, "spoilt") rotten, my dear, you do!
