Arrival of the Scarf and Revealed Identity

My scarf is incredible! There was a package waiting for me on my doorstep yesterday - and I had mixed feelings. Excitement to find out the true identity of my pal and finally see my scarf, but with a tinge of disappointment that the scarf exchange would be over.

Ok, my excitement won out and I opened the box (quickly).

Quick side note: ANYTIME ANYTHING has the word 'Fragile' on it, our entire family pronounces it FRA-GEE-LEE. You know, from The Christmas Story? Receipt of the infamous Leg-lamp?

Kristy!!! (Go visit Kristy at her blog)

Thank you so incredibly much - first for being a wonderful friend and also for all of the goodies. My scarf is incredible - The yarn: Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton Silk is heavenly soft around my neck (yes, I've tried it on) and the Cables in Relief pattern you chose are perfect for the yarn. The colors? PERFECT!

Kristy also sent special music chosen just for me (note the yarn-ball insert), a wonderful box of goodies - lotion, cable needle, stitch markers, post-its, point protectors, and tape measure - but that wasn't all...a bottle of local wine - Merlot? my favorite! Kristy had been thoughtful enough to know that my scarf would enjoy a glass to help it adjust to it's new home! BTW, my new CD is playing now.

Many thanks to Kristy who has been so much more than just my scarf knitter - I look forward to joining you in your afghan project - grandmotherpurl.blogspot.com in case anyone else **HURRY - squares need to be received by 11/10/06!! **is interested. Also, to joining you in blogland when you are ready to knit your first pair of socks.

My favorite scarf will be put to use right away - in SNOWED last week - brrrrrrr.

Ok, one last pic because it better shows Kristy's fine craftsmanship - keep in mind that I am less than a month out of jaw surgery - I'm still wired and swollen - truly, I am smiling on the inside!

Great Stuff! I, too, suffer at Blogger's hands. I thought it was just my cyber ignorance. At least we're not alone. Hope you heal in a trice.

Many thanks for the healing - maybe we should organize a movement "Knitters unite and rise up". For me, knitting can solve most anything
