The mail came and it brought lots of good things--OK, a few bills, but I am not going to talk about those. First, I was very intrigued by a little handmade envelope, so quickly, I opened it. And I discovered that I had been RAOKed by Julie with a awesome paper crane. Of course, I proceeded to blow into the hole underneath like the instructions said and Bryant right away said "Mum, why are you doing that for? It is not going to fly" LOL. Kids! Thank you Julie-I love it!
Next, I had a package from my Secret Pal--and what a package. Wowzie! Look at all the goodies I was spoiled with--yep! that is a new knitting tote, it even has a little hole where you can pass the yarn through! Amazing! The little scarf was rapidly taken away from my fingers and look who was wearing it-Bryant. He was very happily telling me that it was a nice soft scarf. hehehe, OK, don't laugh too much, he is a boy, but he loves scarves and all things that have to do with yarn--I think it has to do with the closet full of yarn I have and the non-stop projects I have going on all the time. I can't help it, he may be the next yarn connoisseur of his era!
My last surprise package was from Jannette's & Harley's contests. I knew that one of them was the Rowan's Classic Garden book, but I didn't know what I was getting for the other contest. Take a look! What an amazing surprise, 8 skeins of Noro!! If you haven't entered her contests, come and tried them, or take a look at the yarns she offers. She ships in supersonic speed!
Well, I am in hog heaven right now. Feeling very, very spoiled, it feels like it is my birthday :).
Thank you all for making my day!
In knitting news- I finished the cable scarf on the knitting board. It is ready for the demo this Saturday. I still would like to make a shrug with the Softwist Bulky, but time is running out. I'll post pictures of the scarf a bit later, Bryant would be my model and he wants to take a shower first and wear his Sunday best--yeah, he is a bit vain. lol.
