Something Lovely this Way Comes
Yesterday I recieved a box of yarn in the mail. It has the most wonderful yarns that I couldn't hope to have and yet here they are! Hand painted yarn! Sock yarns! Italian yarn! Green Mountain Spinnery 100% New England wool yarn! For my daughter who can't wear wool there some wonderful 100% acrylic Loops & Threads Charisma, colorway Ashes!

I was like a kid at Christmas! To make it even better, my daughter and grands stopped in and when they got to my door, there was the box. I opened it and we all oohed and ahhed together and sorted yarn and bagged it to keep it clean.

I'm forbidden by my yarn angel to tell you who did it and that I must honor. The rule is if you're not supposed to tell who dunnit and you do, the yarn turns to dust, right?

To my yarn angel: Thank you!

That is awesome!! You might just be spoiled with the good yarns now!

Also...you need to take a pic! That won't give away the yarn angel.

Way cool! Where do you get these yarn angels? If he or she will pay for the yarn and the shipping, then I need about 50 of them (oh, and a bigger house with more storage, too, please).

I just ordered some yarn from Yarn Paradise. Even with the shipping from Turkey, you get a lot of yarn for a fairly low price!! Fun! Fun!

An Embarrassment of Riches
By request Thanks for asking!

I know I missed some, as I said I'd already put them away. My DS is helping me with pics, soon I should be able to do my own.

Antares, I'm not exactly sure how it happened. I just know I feel like I won the lottery. I can play with yarn that I didn't even hope to have. I feel like a rich *itch!

I just clicked your link, it does indeed look fun! Thanks for posting it.
