Luv my Mailman . . .

A few weeks ago I won a giveaway hosted by Where Women Create. The Giveaway was from Shelli, who owns a darling shop in Petaluma, California called The Knitterly. Well, my wonderful Mailman delivered my fun package yesterday!

Look at the cute bag it came in!
And Shelli's thank you note. Is this not the cutest?
2 skeins of the softest cashmere/silk yarn I've ever held in my hands.

You know how we want scratch and sniff for blogs?
Well, you need rub and feel for this.
It is exquisite.

Thank you Shelli. It is gorgeous. I'm going to have to brush up on my crochet skills before I even think about breaking this out!

And thank you to Jo Packham and Paige Hill for hosting this wonderful Giveaway. Very fun!

Have a great day everyone!

I'm sorry but my computer screen is not letting me touch it...there must be a problem on your end.
Therefore, the only right thing to do is put the pretty casmere yarn back into the cute cow bag and send it all to me so I can touch and feel it for real.
While you're at it, send the cute thank ewe card to me too...
(YOU brought it up, not me!)
you are so lucky, you kill me.
not fair.
you're lucky I love you.

Hi Karyn, that looks so beautiful... I have a "thing" for pretty yarn... I made everyone in my family crocheted scarves~mufflers for Christmas, and I just keep making more, it relaxes me and I love the feel of the yarn... That little "Thank Ewe" card is adorable! PS Did you have the laundry all cleaned up before the mailman came to your door... tee hee hee! xoxo Julie Marie

Oops, sorry I spelled your name wrong! I KNOW it is Karen! xoxo Julie Marie

Theresa said...

Congratulations dear Karen! You do have the nicest mailman ever. He brings you WAY too many packages:) I wonder if I could get him transferred here and let you have my lady. I think she only stops when she wants to, hehe! Cutest bag and I can't wait to see what you make with that lovely yarn! Hugs from Georgia!

I'm sure the mailman could be the ugliest and most annoying guy in town and you would still love him if he brings you packages like that. I would too, no doubt about it! Your description and the pictures of the yarn made me almost feel the softness on my skin. Now we are eagerly waiting to see what you will crochet with it.
