My Secret pal sent me this very nice box. Everything was wrapped nicely - and I hesitated a bit thinking that I should really take a picture of the wrapping job for the blog. Then my inner 3 year old took over, and I tore off the wrappings to see what was inside!
The lovely yarn is Cotton Stria by Manos del Uruguay. Lovely stuff... reminds me of the old 1824 cotton yarn, now discontinued. Then, there is a Spin Off magazine. For my Sept. excursion, a French/English dictionary and a French Slang dictionary (fun!). And, to add to my rubber ducky collection, a mini rubber ducky kit.
thank you SO much!!
And, in other amazing news, I finished my Birch last night. No pics yet. I'm blocking it tonight. The fabric is so soft and cuddly...I finished it late last night, and wasn't ready to stop petting it, so I took it to bed with me. Yep, now I'm using my knitting as a comfort blanket....
My current favorite webcam : the PandaCam of the couple week old baby panda at the San Diego Zoo.... so much fun.
Friday I'm heading out on Vacation for 10 days. We're heading out to CA - the weekend in Santa Cruz (with a planned visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium)(I love that place). Then 4 days in San Jose (with, of course, a visit to Nathania's yarn store. Then, we're heading to a friend's ranch in the mountains for the weekend. We will have a wonderful time!
