Goodies

There was a parcel waiting for me in the mailbox today. I galloped home because I knew the parcel contained some yarny goodness from Bea. Wow! She certainly knows how to spoil a girl:


Isn't it beautiful. And it is so very soft too with an insane amount of yardage -- 560 yards!

You can read the story behind the yarn here on Bea's blog and admire some of her other colourways. On reading this particular post this colourway immediately caught my eye. And then to learn that I influenced it in some way, well I was giddy with delight and wanted to get my hands on it.

Now if the yarn alone wasn't splendid enough there's more... I also received a matching project bag. Love it!


There were so many thoughtful details in this package -- the matching project bag; the coordinated tissue wrapping; the stitch markers. And don't you just love her label 'Yarn Pig'. There's a story there too. As you can tell, I can't sing her praises enough.

Thank you Bea - once again you made my day! :o)

Wow! That yarn is fantastic! I went over to her store and looked at her great yarn! I love it! :)

The colors are close to the ones you chose for your afghan!

Hope to see you soon!

You are welcome. Its good you bought early because someone went in on Saturday and bought ALL the blue, bluish, or green yarn. Now it looks like everything I dyed was orange, pink, or purple!

You lucky lucky girl! It's so nice when someone puts such effort into the wrapping too. I bet you were squealing as you opened it.
