Emily and I heard a hard Thud! at the front of the house the other day and we wondered, what in the world it could be? Surely the box of yarn I’ve been expecting couldn’t make that much noise, could it?
Oh, Yes, it could, cuz it’s a BIG Box of Yarn!
A fellow Ravelry member, Sandi in Maryland, recently wrote to say she had mailed a box of yarn for me to turn into charity ripples. I’ve been anxiously waiting for it to arrive.
I didn’t expect there’d be this much. What a Wonderful Surprise!!
It’s like Christmas came a little early.
Thank you so much for this beautiful rainbow of yarn, Santa Sandi. What fun I’m going to have playing with all these colors!
There’s over seven pounds of yarn – enough to crochet four-and-a-half blankets for foster children! YAY!!
A few days earlier our postman brought me a far smaller package. You know what they say, “Good things come in small packages!”, such as three books bursting with new ripple afghan patterns!
My lovely prizes from the Ripple-Mania CAL giveaway came with the cutest pair of puppies! Happy Holidays to you, Marie, and thank you.
I only flipped through each book before I quickly slid them all back in their envelope. . . out of sight, out of mind. I’ve gotta stay focused. . . Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman!
