Oh, yes I do! Yesterday I received 2, yes 2, packages in my mailbox. Oh the thrill of carefully opening them to see what's inside. I knew both of them were coming, but only knew what one of them contained. (and had already forgotten about it - no short term memory here) Um yeah, the first one contained this:
Ooooh, I'm so excited! My wonderful friend Jeanie sent me my very own spindle and some BFL to practice on. Believe me when I say, I need LOTS of practice. Isn't she just the sweetest?
And up close:
Isn't she, my little spindle, just beautiful? My friend Ann will ask if I named her, (unless that is only for spinning wheels) so I have to think of the perfect name. I've decided it is a she, because it is too beautiful to be a boy. Maybe I will name her Jasmine from Aladdin because my friend Jeanie gave her to me. Get it? Jeanie in the bottle...haha, I know I am a strange one. I can't wait to try her out. I may stay home this afternoon, just so I can practice.
And the 2nd package contained this:
Yumm. 2 skeins of CTH sock yarn in Peacock and Country Garden. Another knitter wanted to get rid of these (for a very good price) and I couldn't say no. I only have made one pair of socks with CTH. It was very nice to work with, so I'm glad I get to use it again.
Um, does anyone know of a cure for a sock yarn obsession?
