Yesterday I posted that I thought my sock blockers were waiting for me at the post office. Today I went to pick them up.
Hefted the package and thought, "man, these are really heavy!" The postperson agreed.
Walked out to the car where my sister, Chaachi and dogboy, Spencer were waiting. I wanted to show the blockers off, so I opened the priority mail box. Immediately realizing that this was not the sock blockers but instead, my Yarn Aboard II package!.
My package is from Gretchen. She had so much goodies for me that they didn’t all fit into the YA box.
My delivery man/explorer is Christopher Columbus. He is looking a bit weary already. But he assures me he has a lot of stamina (his being Italian and all). Here is what he brought:
As you can see, we are early in Christopher’s journey.
Gretchen took my likes to heart. A big pile of sour candies, and some yummy dark chocolate as well. Wow!
The stars of the package are in this photo:
Handmade soap – made by Gretchen herself! Sugared Pink & Yuyu=japanese grapefruit. They both smell wonderful. I am a big fan of handmade soap, and Gretchen chose wonderfully. I am very tempted to take a 2nd shower so I can use them right away.
The little dark grey sheep is so cute!
And the yarn is lovely. Here is a close-up so you can see the colors better:
It is from The Natural Dye Studio – Blue Faced Leicester Sock – each 50 gm., 180 yards. The photo doesn’t do the yarn justice, and you don’t get to feel how soft it is.
