Packages! It's not even Christmas!

Ragged and I have been patiently waiting for a joint purchase to show up in the mail. I have emailed her daily to find out if it had arrived. I ordered a set of knitting needles from Knit Picks. I had been reading reviews and looking at prices and finally gave in and bought their advertised set. I am so excited! On my way home from work I called Ragged and asked if I should stop by her house. She said yes! She had just arrived home and noticed the package had arrived. She was just as excited as I as she had already broke into the box to see all that awaited us. Finally there, we both ripped into the various packages to check everything out. We looked like two kids ripping into presents at Christmas! The needles looked so nice and shiny. They are everything I have read and heard. I told Ragged I was going to exchange the needles with my current project to begin knitting with them immediately. I told her she could borrow any of them if she wished. Gosh knows I don't do as many projects as she in a given time period. Ragged had ordered some beautiful baby alpaca yarn in a lovely fall color for a future project (it was soooooo soft!) and a book with sock projects to her heart's desire. Since I left her house, I've been home filling the organizer and changing out the needles on my project. They were easy to assemble, just like they say! I had to prepare to knit with Grey's Anatomy! Then, I thought I should to take a picture and post first. So, now that I have accomplished everything, I am so ready to knit!

I think I am more excited about the needles than the alpaca. I am so happy for you! All of the needles you need at your finger tips.

How did they do on the test run?

They did very nicely....they whizzed through Grey's, two episodes!
