A couple days ago a package arrived for me from Jimmy Beans Wool. Yep, Jimmy Beans = Knitters' Crack Dealer. It was a fantastic gift from Christy of a sock knitting basket!
The basket itself is fantastic. I've long wanted a Lantern Moon basket and this one matches my bedroom nicely. It also pops open like so...
The basket contained two balls of sock yarn made of 85% corn fiber - Maizy Crystal Palace Yarns in the colorway Neptune.
There is also a notions pouch, Crystal Palace size US 2 bamboo needles, and an Interweave book, Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd.
I’ve needed some knitting inspiration. Hopefully this will do just the trick and will help pass the time as I recoup.
