I’m speechless! My KSKS pal is Liz of Dalai Mama. She put together this most amazing box of goodies, and made two of the most beautiful blue bags. There’s a lovely skein of Fleece Artist (one of my favorites!) in blues and lavenders, and some gorgeous handpainted mohair from Lonesome Stone Yarn.
There are double-pointed needles, a cute tape measure, and the pattern for Evelyn Clark’s Acorn Socks. There’s even a little suitcase box of Lemonheads candy — good candy, great little box.
And because Liz is a Texas girl, she included some chili mix — and it’s the same kind I’ve used for my whole chili-making life. I haven’t had any in a long time, so now I’ll have to whip up a batch. (The afternoon light was nonexistent, so pardon the strange photos.)
And so Annabelle wouldn’t feel left out, she included a big old felted cat toy.
She just loves her roly-poly cat head!
Thank you, Liz!
I also got the word from my pal — Chittavrtti — that her package had arrived safe and sound.
She loves it, and my search for all things amber-ish (including local honey) to go with the purples was just right. I had a great time putting her kit together.
It’s looking like it will be a rough weekend at work, if today was any gauge. Busy, rainy/cloudy, stressful. Next week could do us in, except that next week is also the last week. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel…
So I think I’m going to go and cast on a Mason-Dixon Moss Grid Hand Towel. The linen arrived today, too, and the new needles. A little knitting will be a fine end to a crazy, exhausting, but happy day.
