Loopy Ewe Sock Club

I thought today was a mail holiday (for Veterans Day), but apparently that's tomorrow. I got a Loopy Ewe Sock Club shipment today. It's the final one for this year.
We got some luscious Mountain Colors Bearfoot sock yarn (60% superwash wool, 25% mohair, 15% nylon) in colorway "Montana Chokecherry." The color is pretty accurate in this photo, but the yarn is just a tad darker. I've knit with Bearfoot before and it is quite lovely.

Also arriving with this sock club shipment: some soap (shaped like a sheep), pattern by Wendy Johnson, Loopy Ewe project bag, and Loopy kisses. Here's the picture of the whole box. The yarn looks too dark here - I think the purple tissue paper was confusing my camera. It was too cold and windy outside to mess with it much.To recap the 2008 Loopy Ewe Sock Club (which focused on semi-solid yarns), club members received:

I feel like I might have lost a month there, but the March 2008 sock club shipment was the final shipment of the first Loopy Ewe Sock Club, which was seasonal (summer 2007, fall 2007, winter 2007/08, spring 2008). Maybe there were only 4 shipments for the rest of 2008?
