An Owl Has Arrived

Mistry Moonbleu's owl arrived with a fantastic package! I'm so excited about everything in it! She chose Hagrid as the person to base my kit on :)
Here are some pictures:

Like a niffler to sparkly things, I went to the squishy yarn first! I can't wait to use my beautiful yarn! Thanks Mistry this was on my wishlist!

Here is everything all wrapped up:

And unwrapped! Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, Socks from the Toe Up book, chocolate mint patties, gummy frogs, cute japanese creatures, needle wraps & a emergency crochet hook, and 2 fabulous handmade items! Mistry made an incredible yarn bowl for me to use (I can't wait to use this!), it's got a beautiful glaze and a really creative way to have run your yarn through the side of the bowl. The other handmade item is a rock cake, so cute!

Here are a few close ups of the items:

Thanks, Mistry!! I love everything so much!!

Moving is a Pain

This is how my very first craft room appears at the moment:

The garage is much worse.
I'll be so happy when the last box is unpacked. But at the rate that everything is going I'm not sure I'll be finished anytime soon.
I'm contemplating just donating boxes without even looking inside them. If I've lived without it for a week, then maybe I can live without it for good :)
I did treat myself to some pretty yarn today though. I had promised myself that I would go to the yarn store & buy a very pretty be sweet yarn called bambino taffy when I moved into my new house. It was on sale today! I had completely forgotten to go get it when we closed on the house, and I'm glad I did because I got 20% off & decided to get some malabrigo lace as an extra treat haha!
Oh & I received a lovely ceramic mug from my head of house Hermione! It's gorgeous! It's my prize for being the random winner in our house's weekly contest. I'd take a picture but it's already put away in the disaster zone that is my kitchen.
Well, I'm off to unpack more boxes.
