Yesterday I was cleaning and unpacking(big surprise there) and my daughter said, "Mommy, there is a box on the front steps." Well, I couldn't for the life of me think of anything I had ordered, so I figured it was something my husband got. I went out to retrieve the package and it was addressed to me. I looked at the return address and it was from none other than my awesome knitting buddy, Andrea. You see our LYS in Utah was having a sale last week--they hardly ever do. Well, obviously I couldn't be there(sniff, sniff) SO Andrea brought the sale to me. She sent a nice card, some crazy knitting needles(one is pictured), and some yummy Noro. I had to laugh at the needles--they totally remind me of the needles they use to insert an epidural(I mean doesn't the needle seem that big and scary when they are shoving it into your spine). And the yarn, well what can I say, what knitter doesn't love yarn in all its delicious forms. Noro, no less, one of my favorites. Now I have 1312 yards of Noro that I think is just begging to be made into Birch or Kiri perhaps.
Surprise Stuff--always the best kind :)
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Andrea--you made my day :) I'll return the favor when you least expect it.
I am actually expecting a few packages in the near future--yesterday was a productive shopping day for me. I ordered some books from Barnes and Noble, some yarn and a couple patterns from Patternworks(more on that when the package arrives), and we closed on our house in Utah so we are also expecting a big, fat check sometime this morning(not as exciting as it sounds because we need it for a downpayment when we buy our next house--once we can decide on one--it will be difficult if not impossible to replace my Utah house.
Happy knitting and may your day be filled with unexpected surprises,
