Happiness in the post
My Gladioli are still blooming beautifully and making me feel glad but on Saturday morning the postman brought me something to put an even bigger smile on my face, my One Skein secret pal package arrived and I couldn't be more delighted. This is the first time I have participated in anything like this and I just wish I'd tried it sooner. How fantastic to get a suprise package in the post, it was so much fun to carefully undo the lovely wrapping paper and inside was the most deliciously squishy ball of Bamboo yarn. I think my secret pal must have a sixth sense because I have been longing to try some of this yarn for some time and the colour is such a gorgeous vibrant shade of purple. There was a beautiful card too and then another long thin package, hmmm what could this be? Wow, a most unusual pair of knitting needles, beautifully smooth and light and a gorgeous ivory colour. I have been furiously knitting all weekend so I can finish something off and then cast on anew on these lovely needles, I think tonight may be the night. This knitting exchange thing is so much fun, it is so lovely to get a gift which has been so well thought about, I hope that this will be the first of many exchanges for me. I plan to send my first One Skein package off this week and can't wait to get a reaction, I do hope she is as happy with her gift as I am with mine.
I have also finally decided what to make for my Rowanette Exchange, I have been very indecisive about this but I am almost 99% sure of what to make now and plan a trip to my local "supplier" tomorrow, I just hope she has the colours I want or I may have to rethink, again.
Now, I'm going to leave you with something special, control yourselves ladies, it isn't even spun yet....My neigbours have been sheep shearing, I tell you, it was all I could do to control myself, wool, glorious wool.
