Awesome Secret Pal 9
I am so excited. I was home sick today - girl problems. Feeling sorry for myself and recuperating from a long weekend trip with my Mom. The doorbell rings, and I am dreading a trip up and down the stairs because my Motrin is finally kicking in. But our mail carrier rarely rings the doorbell because I shop online and pretty much get a package every other day. So since he rang the bell I thought I'd better go on down. You can not imagine my excitement. I got my second skein of Socks that Rock in the Highway 30 colorway and a big box from my Secret Pal 9. I am thinking, Lord what all has my Pal sent me in this big old box. SO my dog child helps me back up the stairs - I kid you not, he took each stair with me, one at a time - my boy. We get to the top and I round the corner and pop my packages on the bed. I open my STR to check the colorway and then I get out the box cutter. Oh my doG I received a box load of the extraordinary Valley Yarns Bershire Bulky 85% Wool 15% Alpaca yarn in Olive. I cannot tell you all how much I love this yarn. I have almost every pattern Webs sells from Valley Yarns and I am making a cardigan in the Gray Berkshire Bulky yarn. It is soft and luxurious and feels really good against the skin. This yarn works up fast for instant gratification, it is wonderful. OKAY, now, as if that wasn't fantastic enough. My Secret Pal 9 bought me the most wanted item on my wish list - the ROW COUNTER PLUS, yes yes yes!!! The Advanced Electronic Row Counter for Knitters. Too COOL!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH PAL. You cannot know how good this made me feel, especially today. I needed something this great to help me face going back to work tomorrow still feeling like crap. You see, tomorrow is Chicks with Sticks at lunchtime at work and I will be showing off my gifts from YOU. Thanks bunches. Unfortunately, my child that loves me so much, took off and went to hide in his bed when I started screaming with joy over the row counter and yarn.
