Mailbox bliss

Looky what came in the mail yesterday…..

…a belated Christmas gift from a friend.  Actually, the parcel delivery notice came just over a week ago but it wasn’t until yesterday that one of us (my sweetie) was able to go pick it up. For some reason, our packages are sent to a post office 17 blocks away, rather than the one just three blocks from home. But I digress……..

Among the assortment of goodies, the package included some knitting magazines, the “Big Easy” book of Debbie Bliss patterns (I’ve checked it out a few times online, there are some fabulous patterns in it), and a skein of Araucania Ranco Multy – beautiful hand dyed wool from Chile, I’ve never had any of this yarn before so was really happy to find it in the package. I’ve just looked it up on Ravelry, looks like it would be well suited to a lacey scarf.

Just look at these gorgeous colours…..

… and I didn’t notice it right away, but my book was personally signed.  Lovely.
