Mail time!

I was lucky enough to win a beautiful handmade hook in the International Crochet Day giveaway hosted by The Cosmic Crocheter!

She also included a couple other gifts:

Peace Button Hook

This hook is a joy to touch. It's so smooth and light, I can't stop playing with it. It's a G/4mm hook from Fancy Kitty. It's made of canarywood and has been smoothed and coated with something to make it shiney.

The yarn is Peace Fleece in Kamchatka Seamoss. I'm not certain if it's sport weight or worsted weight as they're both 2ply and nothing is listed on the label. My guess is that it's sport weight. If I can find my ruler, I'll check the WPI. (ETA: It's worsted weight, the Cosmic Crocheter told me so. OOoo that sounds so mystical! :-P )

Lastly, there's a cute crochet button included! The photo on the button is of crochet fabric in all different colors. I'm going to have to stick this on the bag I generally through my crochet in. I also use it as an everday purse, but that's because I'm always bringing my crochet somewhere!

I have no idea what I'm going to use this yarn for, but I'm sure that I'll think of something. I can't wait to play with my new hook and I hope that I can use the two as a pair.

Thanks so much, cosmiccrocheter81 (as she's known on Ravelry)!
