Leif has arrived!

Well lo and behold at my front doorstep on Saturday was my Yarn Aboard II surprise from none other than Alison of blueblog fame. So very excited to have Alison as my pal and soon you will find out why! I had Leif as my explorer who toted all the way from Brookline, Mass this box filled with goodies:

I had a lovely colorway of Socks that Rock and Hedwig yarn (apparently Alisons knows my son very well) from Dani's Sunshine Yarns. And very yummy chocolate (notice that one of the chocolates is missing from the box before I could take a picture and it wasn't eaten by this chocoholic!) E. even had a bag filled with chocolate coins just for him!!!!

Thanks Alison for your generousity and thoughtfulness...the WHOLE FAMILY thanks you! And of course to Amanda (and Mr. Clothesknit too) for her time and effort for putting the second Yarn Aboard together.

Short post as I only had oh so much online time this evening...we finally just got the connection back after having been hooked up with digital phone service today. More tomorrow...all about Sock Wars and finished Adamas pics, as well as progess on my red hot Seraphim!

What a great box of goodies! And you know I love it when people send a little something to the kidlets, it makes 'em so happy -- I'm sure E loved his chocolate coins! Can't wait to see what you knit with your new sock yarn!

Oh, a viking discoverer with chocolate (COINS!) and yarn treasures in his belly! Great parcel you got there BUT: you've outdone yourself packing my parcel! Yippieh, it arrived tonight. How thoughtful you chose goodies for me. I LOVE the Koigu and had a very special moment full of pleasure today fondling the yarn, sipping tea and trying the chocolate. I will post about it over the weekend. Thank you so very much!
