First off, yesterday I got a great package from my Knittyboard
Lovely Fabel yarn, star potholders/jar openers, a tea straining basket, Werther's (non-melty candy) and a bit of double wrapped chocolate which was only slightly melted.
A closer pic of the yarn:
And now for the title story...
Today while I was getting ready to go out and meet chemgrrl
and her mom, who were in town for a few days, the doorbell rang. This is a strange occurrence - and a confusing one, I barely recognize the sound of my doorbell - since my friends usually call to get me to come down rather than ringing the doorbell, and since I didn't have any expected visitors. I grabbed some shoes and headed downstairs, but no one was there. I looked in my mailbox, saw a package slip, and then saw my mailman heading up to a house a couple doors down. I went after him and asked if I could have my package. He handed it to me and said "Well, you've gotta have your yarn!" I agree completely.
Inside was my newest Yarn Pirate shipment:
After that I headed out for the aforementioned meeting. Zanti
were there too. We went to Windsor Button, where I was a good girl and didn't buy any yarn - I did, however, get blue thread with which to sew on the straps for my poor neglected Spork. We walked around the Boston Common and Public Gardens for a bit, and then chemgrrl and her mom headed off to continue their Boston adventures and the three of us headed up Newbury to go to Newbury Yarns and Lush. I didn't buy any yarn there, either, but I did get a couple of bath bubble bars. Now I just need to get a stopper for my tub (it's the old claw foot kind) so I can utilize them.
