Thank You for Being

Hi there,
It's looking like our pear trees will be in bloom this coming week. Spring is definitely in the air.

I received such a nice surprise this week. My best buddy on Ravelry sent me a gift of yarn from her stash. She calls it her SABLE (Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy). Isn't that a hoot?!

If you're not familiar with Ravelry, it is basically facebook for knitters (and crocheters). Slate did a great article about it a few years ago: 

So much fun to unwrap!

The best part is meeting new friends from all over who share the same love of knitting and yarn. I met Sharon about a year ago when I wrote to her about the colors she had chosen for her Theresa Gaffey Stole. I discovered she is from Nebraska, in a small town where my hubby's relatives have cemeteries, hills, plots of land (something like that) named after them. We've been chatting ever since!

Gorgeous yarn! That's two skeins of Koigu Kersti (Sea & Sky II) to make the School Girl Socks, a skein of Regia sock (Snowflake), and most special of all, one skein of the very limited Plucky Knitter special edition for Churchmouse Yarns & Teas (Ferry Schedule). Wow! Sharon is also the person who first introduced me to Churchmouse Yarns, now my all-time favorite yarn source!

Sharon, I can't thank you enough! You are the best!
