I AM SPECIAL

This afternoon, I returned home from Rhinebeck. It was a long whirlwind weekend that encompassed flying up to NYC to visit with family and friends and to attend the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck for the first time. There will more on that later. Awaiting my return to PI, I found the most fabulous package from my KTS4 Pal Tammy.

There were the cutest beaded stitch markers in a wonderful Christmas and Winter theme, and an adorable tin that is perfect for holding all those loose notions that I have scattered about my knitting chair.
And the goodies... lots of Teas and Chocolates from Trader Joe's and some yummy cookies.
And the yarn! Oh my, there was some sscrumptious Hand Maiden Yarn Sea Silk in the Renaissance colorway.........and some truly fabulous Socks That Rock Lightweight in Star Sapphire colorway that is a beautiful periwinkle.
And if that wasn't enough, Tammy was thoughtful to include the "Spring Shawl" pattern from Heirloom Knitting. Since I discovered lace, Sharon Miller's designs have been on my most aspired, most drooled over, most coveted patterns.Tammy, I am in awe of your creativity and truly touched by your generosity. Thank you for making me feel so special.
