The past month or so, I have been so blessed by receiving two amazing gifts of yarn. The first was from a friend who decided she much preferred quilting to knitting and sent me a huge box of yarn. She had only told me that she was sending me a surprise and I was shocked when I opened the box because (1) it was huge and (2) it was top quality name brand yarn.
I mentioned it already but a couple of weeks ago a friend told me that she had some yarn she was going to give me. I didn’t know much about it so I tried not to get my hopes up. I had a trip planned to near where she lives so I would get my yarn upon arrival.
When I got there, I was bringing stuff in from the car. I was staying a week so I had a lot (a LOT!) of knitting projects, mostly in grocery sacks. I walked into the bedroom and found this.
I thought . . Girl, you are tired! I didn’t even remember bringing my knitting projects into the bedroom. Then, I went back to the car to get more and there were all my knitting bags still in the car. It was then that I remembered that the yarn was the gifted yarn from my friend. I RAN back into the bedroom. It is all . . every skein of it . . amazing!
Some of it, like the one shown below, there are four or five skeins . . enough to make sweaters!
It is so gorgeous. I am here for a week . . without a swift or a winder. I was tempted to get on Amazon and order one and have it sent here but then I figured I’d just knit what I brought with me and spend some of my time fondling this new yarn and dreaming about what I can make with it.
I am a very, very thankful knitter!
