I also received my STR Yarn for October. It's from the Raven series and it's called Lenore. The pattern is from the Yarn Harlot. The color of the yarn is dark, but it is deep purple color. I just love it. Note the spiders - they came with the yarn.
I was also excited to receive my Morehouse Farms Verona Shawl kit. Can't wait to begin knitting this one. I got the color aster.
Wollmeise yarn also arrived this week. This is the order that came directly from Germany. I just love the colors and can't wait to order more. Maybe next time, I can get some from the Loopy Ewe.
Looks like I have a lot of knitting to do.
