Today was a good day! Well, partially, and it's not over, but you know what I mean. Technically, today should be a bad day, as there was an unfortunate incident involving a friend and my work laptop that ended with a busted hard drive. This means I am computer-less for the next 3 days while it gets sent out to be repaired (downside of working at home, no tech support!). While this sort of sounds like a free vacation, it is the last day of the quarter, which means I will have a LOT of catching up to when I get the computer back.
Nevertheless, the mail man brought me lots of goodies!! I got the new Yarn Harlot book from Amazon and the Merino I bought after the doggie vet excursion. I'll post pictures of it when it's a nicer day to capture the color. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!! And so soft, so glad I bought it!
I also got my package from my PRGE spoiler!! KnitKat! And wow-o-WOW did she spoil me! The
box was chok full of goodness. Firstly, a cute doxie card with an awesome sticker inside (the ninja sticker). This is particularly appropriate as I am currently infatuated with Ninja Warrior :) There were Trader Joe treats for the pooches and a 'Smart Women Stay Organized' desk kit. Somehow I think she noticed my ABC-Along 'C' entry :)
Then comes yarn-y goodness! You'll notice these 3 skeins came complete with matching candy! Now, must I wait until I knit them to eat the candies?? The center pink is Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock (which I love but never buy because the variegateds all lie and look pretty in a skein and then like poo knitted up! but this is a semi solid and can't do that to me!) The green and dark pink are Mirasol Yarns T'ika, 100% Pima Cotton. So nice and soft!
Rounding out the package is a ball of Louisa Harding Jasmine, which you can't tell in the picture, but is is GLITTER yarn! Oh yeah! Really nice grey with silver twisted through it! A keychain of a sweater-in-progress, Burts Bees Lip Balm (got left out of the photo shot as it went directly in the purse), a fun button, Nerds and yummy, delicious, need to hide it from myself so as not to eat it all at once Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate & Mint Candy!
Thank you so much, Kat! This package totally rocked!
