Imagine my surprise when, while later reading her next blog entry, I saw my name mentioned at the bottom of her post....together with the words "I wanna send some yarn." Whaaaaat? For moi?!! In case you don't know, Sharon is a yarn-dyin' Diva of the finest degree and her yarns are lively and colorful and---I have drooled over them many times! It couldn't have been more than just a few days later when.....
"Hey, Mom! Is that the mailman?"
Why, yes! It was! And this is what he brought.....
Thank you so much, Sharon! I love the yarn and it will truly make a rockin' pair of socks that I can show off under my clear Converse sneaks! So sweet of you to send me such a nice gift, and the note you sent along was equally lovely!
"Can we make some socks from this yarn for me as well? I do have extra toes to cover, you know!"
"Hmmph. I don't know about this sock thing...and more yarn?. I think I disapprove."
"Oh, don't listen to him....he's always a grump. I approve!....Now about those socks...."
We do love a surprise around here---especially in the form of the gift of wool from a very nice person! Thanks again, Sharon! (And BTW, who would have ever thought I'd receive a knitting-related gift for knowing something about Rod Stewart?...and being old enough to know it...heh.)
(If you'd like to see some more of Sharon's great yarn, be sure to go take a look at her new online store.)
