Mail Goodies

A ray of sunshine came today and got me over the "bad day" blues.

First off, I won a blog contest at Megan's last week and my package arrived today and what an awesome package it was-I can't tell you how excited I was by it, but I will try.

Here is what I saw when I emptied the box

Then I unwrapped and voila:

Awesome or what? Three skeins of Cotton Fleece in Caribbean Blue-I may just make another Short N Sweet for me!

Also, three skeins of Knit Picks Andean Silk, which since I can't wear alpaca, I will make myself a gorgeous felted bag with it-I read it felts, even though it has silk in it.

Also, some delicious chocolate, which is half gone and a cool sample of Soak, which I have been reading a ton about online, never saw it as of yet, but now get to try it!

She also sent me, it's on my wishlist and I was surprised cause she said it was just yarn-the One Skein book! I am so excited because I plan to start knitting soon and this is perfect for me. I was just lamenting on Fiber Freaks about how I had a skein or two of stuff I didn't know what to do with, well, now I do!

Thanks Megan=it was a terrific surprise and made my day!

Also a package came for me-yarn from The Sanguine Gryphon-I found her when I was in the Sip N Swap swap that Fiber Femmes had. She wasn't my swap partner or anything, but I checked out her site, which led to her Etsy shop and bam-saw yarn I had to have. Unfortunately, I waited too long to buy it and it was sold out, but lucky for me I emailed her with a special order and she was able to dye it for me. This yarn is awesome. It's called Dance and is handpainted silk yarn. I love the colors, perfect for me and I plan to make myself a slightly more drape-y Adina with it. It's a sport weight yarn and just beautiful! 100% silk noil and perfect for a summer top. I can't wait to get started using it. (Ahem, I bought this before I said no more yarn-so it doesn't count-well I ordered the color anyway and then I had to buy it, right?)

Now, I need someone's help here. Marvie, I think you just did this, so I am asking you, but anyone who has a clue is more then welcome to just shove me in the right direction. I bought a domain name today through Go Daddy today. Now, I know I can still use blogger as my blog account, but how do I transfer it so you can now type in my domain name and get to the blog addy? I looked on the Dashboard and it had instructions on how to do a new CName and I followed the directions, however, it felt incorrect. It takes 48 hours once you do that, so if I have to change it again, it's not a problem. I think I put the incorrect host name, I did the one blogger said to do, but again, it feels "wrong". Yes, I emailed GoDaddy to ask for support, but just a little shove or an okay would make me feel better. ETA: I contacted Go Daddy and was told just to forward it-they couldn't advise me on how to change it so that was the addy that showed, so for now I forwarded it. Weirdly, and I don't know why, if you type in comes right here, but if you type in comes up a server 440 error-hmmmmm, I just don't know enough about this stuff.

That silk yarn looks gorgeous! I really have to explore Etsy more. I can't wait to see what you make with all of this yarn!

All of your new yarn looks gorgeous. You'll have to let me know how the book is, because just last week I was looking at it on Amazon and wishing I could see what was inside and whether it was a good buy or not.
