I can't believe I forgot to tell you!

Wood and I swapped some yarn, a few weeks ago.  It was so much fun (a little expensive, but fun)!  I sent her the leftover yarn from my Child's Placket Neck Sweater (a super soft buttercup yellow), which I thought would be perfect yarn for a sweater for Juniper.

Oddly, she received my package WAY before they told me she would, but I ain't complainin'.  I got mine on Christmas Eve and I sang a little ditty and did a lively jig of joy in the post office (it's ok, they know me there and didn't feel compelled to call the authorities).  When I got home, I very carefully opened it up, and this is what I found:

And can I just say that I really love my new Canon EOS 40D? (Thanks, Honey!)


  1. Thanks for finding my blog! I'll e-mail you properly soon (I'm wiped this week!) but I loooove your wool and your camera! A wool swap sounds like so much fun! One of our big speciality wool stores (Ram Wools) just moved closer into the city and I need to check it out- this post has definitely lit a fire under me to do that!

    Thanks again for stopping by!

  2. Hi Kyla! My, that was fast...

    Ooooh yes, I remember Ram Wools. We used to go there with my mom. I took it for granted at the time and would probably have preferred to be at the movie theater, but I do remember those shelves upon shelves of wool. They are quite well-respected in the rest of Canada...

    I think it's time to admit that I am addicted to yarn porn. That's the first step, isn't it? Admitting you have a problem?

  3. so glad you like it! I'm still caressing the buttercup-yellow as I make swatches for Juniper's sweater. it is so soft and lovely.

    your camera takes some great yarn porn.

  4. Beautiful wool, beautiful photos. I'm jealous even if I don't knit (yet).
