The postman lately has been bringing me all kinds of cool mail. Don't cha wonder what he has been thinking? This package took forever to get to me, and I don't mean just because it came from Germany. Just getting it to my house. First try, no one was home so they left a slip in the mailbox. Evidently, I didn't read it very well, because I signed it and put it out for what I was hoping would be two day delivery. About a week went by, and I got a notice that it was my final chance. This time I read it, checked the appropriate box and told them where to leave it.
Friday, after a particular busy week, there it was siting on the table waiting for me. Lovely goodness. I've never knitted with it before, but knitting friend, Linda has and so I just had to try some. Are not these lovely? And basically, purchased on a whim.
I really have no idea what the one above is going to be, i just like the colors. The purple one below is going to be one of Franklin Habit's shawls I believe.
Earlier this week, the postman delivered a new book for me. I had heard it reviewed on the Knitmore Girl's podcast among a couple of other blogs who blogged about it and it sounded like something that I might need.
Then today, I received two goodies, my new Wool Gathering with a shawl that I have wanted to knit forever.
And yarn to knit it out of. This one is for me. I don't know which of the two shawls above I am going to knit first with it, I'll figure that out later.
This yarn came too, it is a surprise for a friend of mine. I'm not going to do the knitting, she is, at least I hope she is!
So many cool new things to knit on I can hardly contain myself, but for now, I'm just looking at them as I have a couple of things I would like to get off of the needles first. I'm sad though, I have to wait a couple of days for the postman to come back, even sadder because I don't think I have anything good for him to deliver to me!
