I got my 17 skeins of yarn from the UK on Friday! It’s so much better than I expected. It is thinner than my usual ILTY from Hobby Lobby, but the colors are extraordinary. I probably won’t be using it to make an afghan, but it will definitely be used. It will make great baby clothes and blankets. I really need to make some new bunting for my back porch. Mine has been out there in the weather for so long through snow and ice and 110+ degrees. It’s getting a little faded. This yarn will be great for that too. I also got the three afghan pattern books in the mail the same day. I love each one of these books. It’s rare when that happens. I keep looking at them over and over again.
I also got my hand-dyed yarn that I ordered from Dyeabolical Yarns on etsy. It’s so pretty. This picture doesn’t do it justice. I’m going to go back and order another skein just to make sure I have enough to finish the project I have in mind for this.
All I can say is…
W O W !
Look at that little mouse in the teacup.
It looks just like Ollie!
Kate, your “silly little gifts,” as you called them, made my day to say the least. Thank you, my dear friend!
Look what I made with the yarn you sent…
I love all the colors with the chocolate color.
Time to go watch the pre-race shows and make more cozies.
