Magical, mystical, mystery yarn balls!
A participant in Theresa's Magic Yarn Ball Swap, I received my magic yarn ball parcel in the mail on Monday -- from Sheila in PA, two balls of yarn wrapped in pink tissue. Temptation was killing me -- but, because I hadn't yet mailed mine, I allowed myself to unwrap only one of -- a ball of soft, beautiful, green yarn and had "spring" written all over it!
After all my running around yesterday, I put my package together -- along with two others that were due or overdue, and they should all be posted today -- and unwrapped the second magic yarn ball.
I'd expected the second to be the same as the first, but Oh, my. Oh.my.my.my!

The Baktus scarf shown yesterday is still soaking, as we speak, and I hope to pin it out tonight. I will photograph it again so that the changes I made to the shape are more easily seen, and also talk about those changes and the yarn in a little more detail. The scarf should be ready for wearing by Sunday -- Super International Pajama Day! It looked so great in the snow, it ought to look fabulous with one of my white nightgowns.
