My SP, My Haiku, My New Book, My Closet



My East Coast (hey, I can't help but see that Buzzard Bay postmark! A Cape girl!) SP7 sent me a package, which I got yesterday. Sunday? you ask. Are you special, Beverly, that the mail comes to you on Sunday? Special, sure, but not quite that special. I forgot to check the mail on Saturday after my quest to find a book for school that lasted until 11:00 p.m. In this delightful package was a selection of tea bags (I'm boiling water right now), two bundles of mohair roving, a big bundle of merino/silk roving, a dainty spindle, and a hank of chocolate brown alpaca that she spun--I can't wait to knit something with it, and it smells delicious. There were also two little cards with meditations--one called "The Rainbow" and the other, "Artist Zen" as well as a cheerful note!

Thank you SP! I can't wait to try spinning. Your yarn smells lovely, btw. What do you set it with? I'm off for a cup of special tea...xxx

I love your haiku. I just recently ordered the same book from audible. It's the only way I can "read" and knit at the same time. I will be happy to help you with the needle case. Blog is cleaning up nicely (but not showing up on my bloglines?) and dammit I want a banner!

Have you read any of Isak Dinesen's short stories?

Wow, Beverly. You got some great gifts from your secret pal. Do you think there would be any interest in an MFA Knitting Blog Ring?
