Yesterday's post heralded an envelope of sufficient importance that my lovely husband called me at work:
"There's an envelope here. It's from America. I think it's what you've been waiting for."
It took great fortitude and all the character built by D of E and all those other things you do as a teenager that people in warm dry houses describe as character building to stay at work for the remaining 6 hours and not rush home immediately (or suggest H get on a train with the parcel and meet me for lunch).
When I did make it home just look:
My tiny wee sock from Marisol who blogs under the wonderful name of Purls just wanna have fun. And with the tiny wee sock as you can see she sent me a tiny wee sock blocker key chain and
all of this - a lovely card, the tiny wee sock pattern, her blog card and CHOCOLATE!!! As Marisol is several thousand miles and an ocean away I have to send my thank you hug virtually but in all seriousness THANK YOU - I had a grotty day yesterday to finish off a stressful week and that was a wonderful surprise to come home to - above and beyond the swap requirements and I am very grateful.
The yarn is Wolmeisse which I've never encountered before but I think I might just be on the start of the slippery slope. The colour is chilli red which I love and the chocolate is red fire. To continue the red theme, I brought the sock to meet a little red in my garden!
It's been really great getting to know two new bloggers in this swap, Marisol and Amber so go and say hello to them!
