The other day I got a package in the post. Not a little slip of paper to tell me – frustratingly – that a package is waiting for me in the Post Office. I find it excruciating to have to wait until Saturday morning; excitement brimming over into out-right impatience.
But not this time. This time I got an actual package. Yeay!
I like small parcels – small enough that they can come through my letterbox. As the saying says: Good things come in small parcels. Good things like two skeins of KPPPM in purple from Averil.
Thank you Averil. Thanks for remembering my birthday. These will be the next socks I cast on. And they will be for me.
On the subject of birthdays – I never blogged about the cake I made for my son’s birthday at the end of last November (I did post photos on Irish Knitters Group on Ravelry, if it’s looking a bit familiar). He wanted a garage.
The mechanic had to get a Fair-Isle jumper – naturally!
