Happy Mailbox Tales
That’s the yarn I’ll be packing up soon to send to knittingnovice. Two skeins of Karaoke wool/soy silk, and two skeins of hand dyed Mystical Creations rayon. I hope she’ll like her loot.
My mailbox is happy because of the marvelous packages that have recently arrived; one I expected and one which was a complete surprise. I’ll have to come up with extra special projects for both of these gifts.
I knew that some lovely yarn would arrive courtesy of Quiddity, because I won a contest on her blog.
And lucky me, it’s just beautiful. Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Jeans, which perfectly suits me since I’m nearly always in jeans when I leave the house. She threw in some cute notecards, too. Thanks very much, Quiddity! I love it.
Here’s what I wasn’t expecting, another gorgeous skein of blue which went a long way towards banishing the blues.
From my dear friend Amy, gorgeous Malabrigo laceweight in Alpine Pearl, with a Day of the Dead card that’s a work of art. I intend to frame it.
Inside the card was this:
Could that be any cuter?
Amy’s intention was to give me a thank you gift for something I did to help her out, but when she heard I was having a rough time last week she was sweet enough to send it early. It arrived exactly at the right moment and was a beautiful reminder of how important it is to have a good friend in your corner. Yarn can be a nice reminder of friendship, can’t it? Thanks so much, Amy!
