Thank you Cathy!

My yarn is here! I finally made it to the post office to check for your package and it was there!


The timing was perfect; I was very much in need of a treat! Cathy sent me a lovely note, chocolates (I'm hiding them, not sharing with the boys!) stitch markers, beads and hand lotion which is hand crafted near her in addition to YARN!

The yarn is perfect. Lovely shades of blue and teal which are just right and I don't know how she managed it but the yarn is my favorite type: Merino/Silk blend! I love yarns that combine wool and silk, love the sheen, the texture and the drape of them! I plan to design a pattern to knit with these socks, I just have to come up with just the right stitch for the yarn.

Thank you so much Cathy!
