Wife Surprised Me

Afternoon All, Well I spent the morning hard at work baking the first batches of Christmas Cookies while my lovely wife went to the salon, a local craft fair and mailed packages to family in Texas & New Jersey. Then I then took her out to lunch to one of our favorite spots and as we were close to one of my favorite knit shops she suggested we stop in. The Kirkwood Knittery recently moved to a new location and I had not visited them since their move. As I was looking around she slipped me a $100 bill and told me to pick out some stocking stuffers for myself as long as one of the fibres could be for a new scarf for her - the only requirement was something very soft. So here is a picture of what I selected. The pale blue is for her. It is Silky Cashmere Fingering by Lotus Yarns (55% silk and 45% Mongolian Cashmere). The light grey fingerling also by Lotus Yarns for me (100% Mink). The last three are custom dyed yarns by Prism - Merino Mia (100% Merino Wool) in Tumbleweed, Bronze & 603. All will be knitted up into scarfs for next winter and packaged per the instructions in Country along with matching mittens. JRob

Just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Yarn just had that great thing about it. Warm and fuzzy on the outside and on the inside! Beautiful!
