View Full Version : An Unexpected Surprise From a Friend

06-14-2008, 06:40 PM
Ok…so I’m minding my own business, watching National Treasure 2 and knitting a washcloth for another knitter when I get a phone call from my friend (the gal I made the comfort blanket for).

She came over this week and let me make fresh fruit and carrot juice for her. I also gave her a hat I had made and a pair of knitted slippers, along with a bag full of magazines. She has to stay in a lot since she’s going through chemotherapy and her resistance is low.

She told me she was on her way to bring me something, and she wouldn’t tell me what.

Here’s what she brought…


And here’s a close-up of what’s inside:


A basket fit for a chocoholic. There's also a loaf of fresh bread...not sure what kind, but it was warm when she brought it. Plus, I’m going to use the basket to display my yarn. What a sweet lady!

Here's a picture of the basket with yarn in it. I have to sheepishly admit that I had a hard time selecting which yarn from my stash should be placed into this basket. I could have almost filled it up with just Lily n Cream!!!
