Fellow knitters and crafters I know you all appreciate the joy of receiving one of those lovely parcels in the post, you know the ones, a squashyness in the packet gives it away. On Saturday morning the children excitedly brought through a parcel with my name on it, they watched with baited breath and then confusion at my absolute joy as I fondled the contents. Sigh, they just don't get it, thank goodness I can share it here.
I won Heather's prize draw and this is my prize, a fabulous one, Piece of Beauty sock yarn. This yarn is gorgeous, so soft and the colours are so deep and rich. Thus far I have only knitted socks in Opal so this is a real treat for me and I cannot wait to cast on, but wait I must as I am still strongly practising project monogamy. Soon however, soon.
Right now I like to gaze at it and imagine how pretty it will look in my work basket, wrapped around bamboo needles, pleasing my senses. You all know what I am talking about, don't you? That wonderful yarn lust feeling, the early honeymoon period when still in the first throes of love for a new yarn, when you just have to stroke it once in a while.....
Thank you so much Heather, this was such a lovely surprise, you quite made my day.
