Game on!

Yummy yummy! Although what's with the vinegary aroma? You gotta love it when the mailman brings something this fabulous! Looks like I get to get started on the hoodie. I may actually start with a swatch -- I know, I must be coming down with something. We'll see :)

Lovely yarn, Erica! And don't worry about the vinegary aroma. It can sometimes be a good sign, particularly with red (which is the color that has the greatest tendency to bleed). Some dyers are so afraid of a vinegar smell in the yarn that they bo overboard in washing it out when in reality, a bit of vinegar even in the final rinse of the yarn will help the color remain fast. The smell will dissipate in time, but at least you know they didn't rinse away all the acidic goodness of the vinegar :)
