Look what arrived in the post today and was sitting on the kitchen table waiting for me when I got home!
I was going to wait for Christmas! Really I was! Honest. But it sat there looking at me, taunting me with it's festive box and bow and I broke. I caved and thought I'd just take a little peak. Well a little peak led me to red tissue with sparkles. What's a girl to do? Especially one such as myself with absolutely zero will power. Even when I was little, ok really until I left home and got married, I used to get to open an early Christmas present - well admittedly it was on Christmas Eve just before bed, but still it was an early present, and what does it matter if it's twenty days earlier than I would normally have ever considered opening such a present?
So I threw caution to the wind and carefully pulled back the tissue paper to reveal this:
The very wool I have been coveting since I first laid eyes on it on Pick Up Stick's website! In the very colour I've been wanting too! How did Connie know? How I ask! Maybe she has a direct line into Santa! But all I can say is Teresa somewhere out there in knitty land has exceptional taste and Connie of Pick Up Sticks is amazing at pairing people up with their yarn!
Now. Can I wait till after Christmas to start knitting with Sweet Georgia's Handpainted Berry? It calls to me. Softly, subtly, but there it is, ever whispering my name. Urging me onto sock-y delights!
