Knitmas time is here… Part 2

Posted on: December 11, 2012

I got home from work yesterday and found a missed delivery leaflet from the Post Office. VanDammit, I’d missed my Knitmas parcel! I was so impatient to get it, I spent all night last night thinking of it sitting in the parcel office waiting to be collected.

Hubby picked it up for me this morning, and the rest of the day was a blur of laughter. First off, he tweeted me this photo of my parcel which was being held to Knitmas ransom:

There were lots more tweets about how it was scared and cold and lonely, and they culminated in a ransom demand at lunchtime:

Lots more photo hilarity ensued throughout the afternoon, but you get the drift. I laughed all day!

He finally came home from work this evening and I got my hands on my parcel of goodies:

Much furious unwrapping later, and here’s my haul:

A  violet crumble bar! I bought one of these before in an Australian shop in Dublin and I loved it, it’s kinda like a Cadbury Crunchie bar. I’m looking forward to eating this!:

This. This is special. A really squishy yummy cowl with a really gorgeous button. I love this. I’m going to wear it to work tomorrow. The photo doesn’t do the colour justice (winter light being what it is) but it’s a really rich shade of tealy green:

And then the yarn. The Yarn Yard! I’ve never knit with this yarn before, I can’t wait! One skein in green:

And one skein in the most fab shade of pink! Love it:

I really have been spoiled rotten, thank you SO much Kersti! i love every single bit of my parcel. And thanks too to my hubby, for making the anticipation that much more fun!

 

Good knitting!
