A package!

So, there I was yesterday, working away at home trying desperately to finish this project that was supposed to be done two weeks ago, when the dog started barking. It was the postman, with a delivery! For me! And I hadn't even ordered anything! (Can you sense my excitement? Sometimes only an exclamation point will do.)

It was from Anne, and she sent me all sorts of goodies, beautifully wrapped up in colorful bright tissue paper (sorry, the paper soon went the way of the kitten, as I dug in rather quickly).
Look! Soap (that's the lemon there), and stitch markers, and a book, and yarn! The beautiful autumnal colors haven't really come through in that photo, so here's a better shot of the yarn.
How great is that? I think maybe it might need to be mitts. For me. Doncha think? Thank you, Anne! It's exactly what the doctor ordered.

Which reminds me, I'm done with the second mitt, barring stitching down the hem, which will happen in approximately three minutes, when I go to watch Bones. Meanwhile, I leave you with Matching Cats.
And, Undignified Cat Enjoying Kauni.
Now, if I could just figure out what to knit tomorrow in Senate...

Oh presents are always good! I love the picture of you and your cat.

ooooh mail, with yummy goodies, and matching cats, and you told us you were not a zelous housework person - and there you go arranging the cats so neatly.

take care, and update us on the next knit project, in or out of Senate....

Something easily portable?

I love those matching cat cushions! And the yarns and the finished Kauni.

Anne said...

:) enjoy, enjoy

I love those carefully-arranged felines.

Thought of you today in the one school meeting venue in which I could NOT knit (for a whole hour, no less), and wondered which project went with you to Senate ...

Packages are the best things ever! It's like being back in college and getting a "package slip" in your mailbox that is the envy of all those who haven't had home baked cookies in a while. Your goodies are pretty amazing!

So...what did you knit it Senate???
