Rainy day

Today is an all grey day, it is raining constantly. Grey, at least until the postman arrived. Two packages for me, both of which were sort of expected, but both still a more than pleasant surprise because they were hand picked by strangers - at least by people whom I have never met - still matching me perfectly. Once again, I’m hit by the lovely sensation of knowing that someone out there have been thinking about me, considering what would make me happy.

The purple yarn is New Zealand Lammeuld from Tina, not really a gift, but rather payment for a pattern, resulting in this lovely Hearts version. The color is picked by Tina, and i love it! Thank you, I am very happy with our little swap!

Then there is the 185 g Evilla Artyarn 8/2, a yarn I have been curious to try. The red/black color changes look so cool! I think I can hear it begging to become a shawl, but who knows.. The yarn was a gift simply because of Merete's 1 year blogiversary. I am so happy for the gift, Merete, thank you!

Dejligt at blive forkælet af andre blogger.
Det er cool det sorte/røde garn .. jeg glæder mig til at se hvad du finder på Tora :-)

Håper du kan bruke det! Jeg innrømmer å ha nøstet det opp fordi jeg synes det er penere enn hesper, måtte jo være presentabel gave? :)

Å jada, jeg skal nok klare å få brukt det :-) Jeg så et Shetland triangle i det garnet som var ganske tøft, men jeg har et par andre ideer, så vi får se..

Og jeg er enig i at nøstene er lekrere enn hesper, og så slapp jeg jo å gjøre det selv.. Igjen - tusen takk!
