The yarn I speak about is Lorna's Laces Shepard Sport in the Vera colorway....love it! These four skeins will be made into Ella. I got them off of the ebay store Yarnbow, which I highly recommend! I ordered these skeins on a Tuesday and got them on Thursday! And the prices are very reasonable too. Plus they have such a large assortment of colors that none of my not-so-local LYS's would ever have. I say "not-so-local" because the closest yarn store to me is over half an hour away and costs $3 in tolls to get there.
Anyway!! onto the other thing that I received in the mail this week.....Bryspun circular needles! These things are great! I learned of them when reading Grumperina's archives. They are just a good as everyone has said they are. I really like how the tips are pointy but not so pointy that you're splitting yarn.
And yes, that is the start of the Counterpane accessories bag from Handknit Holidays.
