Yesterday brought some happy mail:
The timing could not have been more perfect after a crapola day at work (I love my job, love my bosses, don't so much love some of my co-workers. Nuff said.). I was so fortunate to win a drawing that Andi over at My Sister's Knitter held. Each month Andi features a different and new (to me anyway) indie dyer. Fabulous stuff. The variegated yarn is from Dragon Hoard Yarn in the color Peek-A-Boo. Look at all those colors in it! And the mini skein of bright green will be perfect for heels and toes. Of course, I have 4 projects on the needles right now and some Christmas socks to knit for folks, but I'm thinking come January when it is cold outside, this yarn will cheer me right up!
Naturally I could not resist ordering some yarn as well (which came last week):
All these pretties! The top 3 skeins are from Valerie (FABULOUS Sale!!). Colors are (left to ight): Black Dahlia, Leaf Bug and Cosmopolitan. The bottom 3 skeins I ordered from Simply Sock Yarn (and got a free bag also!). The skein on the left is Regia - color is camouflage. The middle skein is from Lang and I can't remember the colorway. The bottom right is from Blue Moon and the color is Sabertooth Caterpillar.
I was bemoaning the fact that no more packages are due to be delivered...but that is probably a good thing. I don't know if I mentioned this or not, but Fletch cracked me up the other week by saying he thought he should take up knitting. My response was WHAT??? His rationale is that if he takes up knitting, he too will be receiving packages in the mail all the time. LOL. I should be set for a little while - even if we have a major blizzard and the mail stops for a week or two (never happens).
Anyway, I am back at work and avoiding a certain co-worker. I will say that one of my bosses complimented me on how I handled that individual yesterday. There is a slight comfort in knowing that they (bosses) know and understand what I have to put up with on an almost daily basis. And, you know what? I'm 64, so it won't be forever (thank God!!).
Hope your week is going well.
