A Great Mail Day! I received fibery blessings from all over yesterday. While at work I spied the receptionist making his way down the hallway with a box from the Threadbear Boys. Inside were three Phil Onde skeins in Chlorophyl to make a summery tank for my daughter. Also inside was enough Manos del Uruguay to make the Meza Luna felt bag. Another envelope was delivered to my office containing two Colinette pattern books, Art to Wear and Scarves. Once arriving home I was happy to see that my Fall 2004 Interweave Knits magazine had arrived. I espcially liked the Sideways Spencer and the Flower Basket Shawl. ~~~ Monday afternoon my husband called me at the office to say that a box had arrived for me and I could pick it up at the post office after 9:00 a.m. the next day. That could only mean the Beta Box of the Snob Stash Redistribution Program had landed! Woo Hoo! So on my way to work Tuesday, I swung by the PO to take delivery of the box. I had only been at work 3 hours when I couldn't stand it any longer and stealthfully made my way down to the parking lot to have a peek. Whoa baby! What a haul! I had a fun time fondling all the fabulous yarn last night - and not a Red Heart to be seen! This is what I put in: That's 8 skeins of Berrocco Zen in Midori Green (enough to knit this wonderful Berrocco Pattern, Lucy Lu); 7 skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky wool in Burt's Blush; 1 skein of Colinette's DK wook in Emerald; 1 skein of Reynold's Lopi in Natural; 5 skeins of Ironstone Yarns Island Cotton in wine with a Flyaway Free Jacket pattern from Just One More Row; and 1 skein of Lorna's Lace Shepherd's Sock in color 502 Sassy Stripe. Not shown: 1 skein Berroco Furz in brown and 1 ball Trendsetter Charming; and Vogue Knitting on the Go - Teen Knits pattern book. This is what I took out: That's 5 skeins of Colinette Isis in the Monet colorway; 1 skein of Great Adirondack Rayon Chenille and 1 skein Eros for a cool novelty scarf; 1 skein Charisma wool; and 13 skeins of K2 Sesia. ~~~ Don't forget to submit your menu items for the Della Street Cafe Contest (see July 8th post).
