Lots of good little things have happened since my last post. I had received a “Wee Ones” box on Saturday that puzzled me. Seeing the pensive look on my face, Rich asked me what was wrong. I told him how I did not recall ordering anything from the talented Jillian, and that I was thinking of doing so after I had a chance to send her good photos of our bunnies. To explain, I had ordered custom stitch markers from Jillian for a couple of special swap pals, so I knew what her packaging looked like. Having one of her boxes appear out of nowhere was a pleasant surprise. Opening it, I gasped when I read the words written on the gift box inside.
What wonderfully kind words! I lifted the box cover and found four carefully wrapped items. One by one I unfurled the pretty paper to see the mysterious contents. Click HERE to see what all the fuss is about. Are they not the cutest things?? 🙂 If my ugly picture is not clear enough, it is a warren of four rabbit stitchmarkers. Thank you soooo much Sallee!! These babies are being carried in the tin my niece bought for me.
Besides the sweet little box, there was a card from the USPS that stated I had a package to pick up. Rich and I never can figure out why the postal carriers do not attempt to see if we are home on the weekends. Rich was actually downstairs most of the day while I was out and yet we still received a card. (Sigh — shake head…) Since I was working from home on Monday, I asked Rich to pick up the package. It turned out to be something I have been expecting from Ontario. Remember Marni’s fabulous Bias Fair Isle sweater from Loop-d-loop? No? Click HERE for a quick peek. From her inspiration, I decided that I had to make that pattern, so much that I bought the book from somebody on Destash and obsessed over what yarn to use. Looking through my stash, the Horstia Silk/Wool (please do not ask me to type the full German name) seemed perfect but I was missing a color or two. Well, to make a long story short, I discovered another person who had some on Ravelry and offered to buy it from her. Viola! Wait, the photo is not appearing? Shoot, I really need to get another camera!
The final bit of knitting happiness is the package which arrived in Monday’s mail by my Knitters Tea Swap 3 Pal, Carol from Celadon Cupcake. Now in order of opening, I present the awesome goodness that she sent me.
