I sat down to do this right away this morning, but I became sidetracked by the new Knitty. (Exasperated sigh!)
However, I'm back now, so I must say thank you Abigail, thank you!
So yesterday, I scurried into the house (because it was FREEZING here in Minnesota yesterday), with a package from my front step. I opened it up to see this:
I had to pause for just a moment in awe. The first thing I took out was these, and I could only think: Mittens! (Did I mention? FREEZING!)
Then, I dug into these:
Yum! (crunch. crunch. crunch...) Then of course, there was more! Did I mention yesterday how sock-happy I have become? Abigail knit 36 pairs last year. I now have a goal to shoot for, and she helped me out with this:
A perfect color for me! This is the Rennaissance colorway, and I took the picture last night and it was dark so it's really hard to see the colors, but this is awesomely blue and red and purple with a little bit of green. Then, finally, the treasure that got me very excited because I have never been able to pick up two skeins of this and decide which color I wanted!!! Some Koigu KPPM!! In an amber/toffee colorway. Such socky goodness for me!
But that was not all, there was coffee, of course! Biscotti, shortbread, an adorable cup and a cute little postcard from Arizona!!!!
After seeing the mayhem that a few bad apples have caused over on the Yarn Ahoy 2 swap, I have to say, I find myself incredibly lucky in the two swaps I am currently in. But this? Totally made my week! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Knitty had the same effect on me. Too much knitterly goodness to enjoy.
We also have sheep, angora goats and an angora bunny. We live in Central NY.
