Waiting for my sockapaloooza socks to arrive as well as the DYE-O-RAMA swap yarn, the sight of the postman approaching with a parcel was not that surprising.
What is in there?
Surprising, however, it was neither of the expected parcels but a lovely surprise from Jenn! Can you believe, she send not only one but TWO skeins of Socks That Rock yarn! One in the gorgeous colourway Ruby and one in Cobalt Bloom. She also added some cute greeting cards with a knit theme. And as if this is not enough, she included many, many Kool-Aid sachets. Yippieh! Off to more dyeing adventures! Customs showed no interest this time, maybe they marked me down as the oddball who drinks gazillion liters of unhealthy strangely coloured soft drinks.
It is so much fun to get a parcel with yarn! And at long last, am I not the only one in this house who enjoys receiving yarn deliveries.
[don't miss the mouse-over effect]
And another bonus point of this surprise parcel: the sockapaloooza socks and the DYE-O-RAMA yarn are still to come!
Now it is my turn to send out parcels. Some while ago, I asked you to help me to overcome my homesickness. I am very grateful for all your comments, I really enjoyed reading them. Common agreement on German qualities seems to be the beer and the cordiality. Probably one goes hand in hand with the other sometimes ;-)
First, I am announcing Tiffany as a winner in the freestyle category, congratulations! But second, overwhelmed by the amount of heart-warming feedback, I decided to draw two winners from the rest of you.
A little transperancy on the very scientific drawing procedure...
Congratulations go out to Laursink and Liz! I sent each of you an email so keep an eye on your spam folder. Thanks everybody for taking part!
PS. I promise, the next post will be kitten-free!
