It's a knitting care package from someone who knows I care about knitting ...
ha! got ya didn't I? I have things delivered to The Manfriend since I am not allowed package / mail delivery at work. He saw the KnitPicks tape on the box and just sort of sighed when he handed it to me.
So what did I get? Well a lot of sale items. I want to say they are all practical necessary purchases, but it's a bit indulgent as well. The rectangular card board box in the back is a Christmas present for me to put under the tree. (He doesn't know it yet, but I'm thankful for "his" kindness). And since it's not Christmas, I'm not taking it out of the box just yet, but it's something novel and yet practical at least for me. I'll post a follow-up picture at the end of the year.
I got one "fait avec amour" tag for a project for someone I have some amour for, wink wink, nudge, nudge.
There are some rainbow cable needles, because like stitch markers, they often go missing. I have been known to use a lot of things as cable needles, and I've knit a few things without. Still, I prefer to have a set in my knit tool kit.
One skein of Hawthorne fingering, because it was too hard to not buy yarn while on their website.
And a set of double point needles in some small sizes that seem to constantly disappear.
What you can't see in the front of the box is dpn tubes. I'm really disorganized in the remaining unsnapped dpns I have, and need a way of easily storing the correct sizes together, especially when they are unmarked. Though I'm going to have to trust my needle gauges to suss out the difference between US 1.5 and US2 for a few older knitpicks and other dpns that have their sizes scratched off ...
Then I can really justify having 5 pairs of socks in progress, right?
So tell me, what would you put in your knitting care package to yourself? What's irresistible for you? What is something you actually need?
