It’s been another long week here in the Woods, so the boxes of kindness have been truly appreciated. Sissy even managed to post about a package just for the fur-girls.
It’s not the best photo in the world, but as the Knight and I were rushing out in opposite directions, I managed to snap a quick photo of the package dear Jessi sent us. Yarnie goodness, notions, and yes, EVERYTHING has cables on it – the blue bag, the rusty pencils, the note cards! The plastic bag with Starbucks Via in it also holds candy for the Knight – or did. Sweet Jessi timed it so well that the Knight and his little treasure headed to the meeting together the other night. He doesn’t drink coffee, so he did kindly ditch the Via packets on his way out.
I know, I know, you want to see the yarn!
Isn’t is purdy!? Beautimus? I just have to say here that I can only accept Jessi’s decision to end her dyeing career (for now?) because I have so many other talented indie dyers as friends. Mourn with me, but don’t ask me to share anything other than photos.
If you look to the left, in front of and behind the candy/coffee bag, you’ll see the fur-girls’ toys. They’re the un-stuffed dog toys. The raccoon squeaks in a rather standard fashion, but the rooster makes a grunting-like-crowish sound. If you look closely, you can see that a certain very little young lady claimed the fowl as her own, and wouldn’t even let me take a proper photo for all her ridiculous guarding. As I type, the rooster is shoved under the throw pillows at one end of the sofa and I think I’m sitting on the raccoon. Hem. They’re safe, for now.
Of course, the girls are currently tug-tugging with the lion, but if you want to know more about that, see Sissy’s post linked above.
What’s ahead for your weekend? I’m doing some serious re-charging, but I do need to do a dry run through the pattern I’ll be using in a Magic Loop class I’m teaching. I’m modifying a friend‘s mini sock/ornament pattern for worsted yarn… Oh, just come back later and I’ll share it!
