A fun start to Malabrigo Cast On Week

I received a package from EarthChick on Saturday. She had a contest on her blog a little while ago and I had won. ^_^
Here's what I got:

Two skeins of Malabrigo in Indigo. Mmmmmm. It came just in time for Malabrigo Cast On Week. ^_^ I think it will soon turn into an Irish Hiking Scarf.

I also received these hand made beauties:

Stitch Markers! =) They're so beautiful. I actually used them right when I opened the box. The mittens I was working on required 2 stitch markers and I figured that I might as well break them in. Sadly, I wasn't able to take any pictures of them in use... so, instead, I CO for a new Scrunchable Scarf in Malabrigo for Malabrigo Cast On Week and I slipped the markers into my work, just so I could get a picture of them "in use."

They actually came with a tiny jewelery bag as well:

I was on a picture taking binge this morning. ^_^ I'll give more on my Malabrigo projects throughout the week. I also found out on Sunday that I received my Ravelry beta T-shirt as well, so, pics of that soon to come.

Blog hard!

What an awesome prize! I love winning stuff. Those stitch markers are so cool! I actually have a little bag that is almost identical to that one, but in different colors. The Hubbster got it for me for some occasion about 3 or 4 years ago, and I use it for all of my cards in my purse.
