Mail Box

Admit it! When you see one of these, doesn't your heart beat just a little faster?

And then, sometimes, your next thought is "Hmmm, I don't remember ordering anything"

Well, this time a big Thank You! goes to Norma, who just had her fourth blogiversary, and a contest, and I was among the lucky winners.

Lucky indeed! The yarn is pretty tiny-new-leaf green Piece of Vermont merino/bamboo/nylon fingering weight in the Hoping for Spring colorway. Bamboo gives it a really nice subtle sheen and a soft silky feel. Though it's machine washable, there's enough yardage for a shoulder shawl, and this is too nice for the feets. Plus, yummy Vermont maple syrup (I love the real stuff!), and TRUFFLES from Vermont Nut Free! I am definitely hiding these from the Hubs.

Ooops!

For such a thoughtful package of local Vermont goodies, Thanks Norma! Love your blog.
