Yarn!


Usually, when I get packages at work, they are not exciting. They are software updates, manuals, or regulation packages. Friday was a wonderful, super, awesome exception.

I got Sea Silk!

A couple of weeks ago, I talked about Kirsty of So Many Yarns and her fundraising efforts for Leukemia and Lymphoma. As part of these efforts, Kirsty was giving away yummy, yummy yarn. I won the Sea Silk in a melon colourway, as well this wonderful stuff.


This is Artyarns Silk Rhapsody - a blend of silk and mohair in lovely, perfect sherbet colours.

And finally, three skeins of Kaliedoscope cotton and wool blend in Belize colourway.
















I squealed like a little girl when I ripped open the colourful package, and then proceeded to thoroughly freak out my coworkers when I insisted they feel the yarn. And that may have gotten worse when I chose to drape the skeins within arms' reach on my desk so that I could admire them and pet them occasionally during the afternoon.

Thanks so much to Kirsty - this is a great treat, and I will spend many lovely days thinking of how to make this yarn into beautiful things.

And now for some more pictures, just because.
