Parcel from Elann

Much excitement here today as my parcel from Elann arrived this morning! (I ordered it surface mail so it took 6 weeks to get here) Here it is:

Parcel from Elann Posted by Hello

Still in its bag! It is a ladder yarn, I think about aran weight, and 72% acrylic, 28% viscose, it feels lovely and soft. The pink and the mauve on the top right are going to be a pair of hats for Nanny for her birthday (she will be 92 next month!) since she doesn't have much hair now and I thought this yarn might hopefully make a nice soft indoor hat. The navy blue is for me, but I haven't quite worked out what it is going to be yet. I shall just stroke it as I pass by and I'm sure I shall work out what it would like to be soon.

I am dying to cast on for the first hat, but am rather torn as I feel I should really do some more on the felted bag first before I start yet another new thing. Oh the dilemmas! So little time, so much fun knitting!
