Several weeks ago now, Deb called me from work and told me she had accumulated over 9,000 safety points at her job and she was thinking about using those points to get a new camping dining shelter for us. She showed me which one online and she decided to go ahead and ordered it. The box arrived to the office here at the apartments one day and they called to let us know. Of course they called on a Friday when she was working and since she also works Sat & Sun she had to wait until Monday to go pick up the box.
Monday came and went and a few days later i got a call from the office to remind us that we had a box to be picked up. WTF?! I thought Deb had told me she picked that box up?! I went off on her totally bitching about her not picking up the box and why did she lie to me about something so dumb, etc. Knowing she had picked up the box, she scratched her head and went to the office anyway. When she returned, she held in her hands an unexpected package addressed to ME.
Huh, what?!! Ooops, did i feel like an asshole! I apologized a couple of times and took a good look at the box...it was a surprise package from Steph back in Maryland. I rubbed my hands together like a small child anticipating Santa's Arrival and got a pair of scissors to cut the tape so i could have a peek inside. Ooooh!! Kick Ass! It was a box full of yarn, with a lovely little house warming note.
Steph, i can't thank you enough for your gift of yarny goodness to my stash. I was drooling so much over the Knit Picks Felici in Pebble that i sped right along on Deb's Horcrux socks in Knit Picks Memories - Yukon just so that i could cast on another pair of socks for her in the Felici!! The Felici is a dream to knit with, it's so soft and squishy and it glides along the needles very nicely. I cast on for that new sock last Tuesday, worked on it over the weekend during Camp Out and finished sock number one today. Sock number two will go onto the needles tonight, but i had to stop to make sure i finally got a post up here to thank Steph for sending some of her stash to my hot little hands!!
