Mail Call,.. Again

Two great packages in less than a week. I love it! My sister sent out my B-day package a few days early, but there is no way I can wait until Sunday to open it ...sorry Mandy:) Look at the wonderful package she sent. And she added little notes with each present. The new Favorite Socks book, I love it and will be knitting many of these, some I already have. She knit me a pair of blue socks in Trekking, I am lacking in blue socks and she knew that. I love blue, I just don't seem to buy much blue yarn, go figure? She sent the little bit of extra yarn along and commented that she has never had so little yarn left. I think she is implying I have big feet. A Starbucks gift card, I have to work tonight so I will be having a White Chocolate Mocha Frappicino for the ride up. And chocolate goodies, I do love chocolate. Thank you so much Karen, you are the best sister ever!!!!! And speaking of birthday presents. I ordered myself some yarn from The Loopy Ewe I can't wait to get it. I ordered it early this morning, and by this afternoon they were sold out of the yarn from The Knittery, still had some of the Stone Barn Fibers, hurry and go order before it is all gone. I can't wait to get it.

And I have been knitting, but I can't share it with you. I did knit a baby hat for the quarterly challenge at The Loopy Ewe. I want to knit a few more of these and some fingerless mitts. I don't know what the yarn is, it was donated to me for my charity knitting. I can tell you it is yummy and was wonderful to knit with and oh so soft. Well, that is it for today, hopefully I will have more knitting to share later in the week.

I'm so glad you got your package and that the socks fit and you love everything (you know how I worry about these things). That hat is so nice (love the colors and the i-cord knit). I'll wish you a Happy Birthday again now (but I'll call you on Sunday too). Happy Birthday! I love you!
