What's In My Crochet Bag - Craftiness Meme Edition

It's been a while, huh?

I've been crocheting, but unfortunately nothing that I have to show. I have been making some of the gifts for the crochet meme, but I don't want to show you guys any of them until they are in the hot little hands of their intended recipients. I've also been working on a sweater for me, but I'm out of yarn, so all I could really show you are some completed motifs.

However, this week I received my very first gift of my own from a craft meme. Suze sent me some... Hand dyed yarn. Hooray!!

There is the prettiest green that is somehow simultaneously bright and light and the most beautiful slightly variagated purple ever!! I am told that they are Kool-Aid dyed and that thrills my little heart. I have no idea yet what I am going to make with them, but you better believe that I am hording at least the purple all for me. Me. Me. Me.

There is also this really precious produce bag from Daniel and Anya, Suze's rugrats. There were some other things enclosed, reminicences from a life past. It was possibly the coolest present I've ever opened, stuffed with goodies. I kept expecting the rest to just be packing and there would be one more fabulous item.

Hopefully, I will be shipping some of my own gifts next week. I am hoping to finish up a couple of items after the holiday is over. I have quite a few in progress, so it shouldn't be too stressful.

I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!! Eat, drink and be thankful. Then, shop until the sun comes up. That's what I'll be doing at least. Notes from a Scattered Mind is officially on hiatus until November 30. I won't be online at all this weekend, so wish me an easy withdrawal and a speedy return.

Jess, I'm so glad you like your package! This dyeing with Kool-Aid is pretty fun, I have to say.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I think I will have to try the Kool Aid dyeing sooner or later.

Hope everyone had a great holiday!
