must. breathe.

Now that I have stopped hyperventilating, I must show you what was in the box I just opened. Look at this:

Remember this day? Not a good day. That is UNTIL I found out that my name was drawn for the weekly winner of the Random Acts of Kindness Contest sponsored by Sheri at the Loopy Ewe. I haven't won anything since a Pippi Longstocking look-alike contest when I was a kid. Yea. Still working through the issues associated with THAT win.

But I will have a grand time working through this win. To keep things consistent, I heard the thud of the package on my porch as I was lying in bed nursing the FLU. But Flu-shmu. This package fixed me right up. It included several wonderful patterns, a red loopy bell, a lovely shawl pin, a skein of Cider Moon "Glacier" in the "Forest Floor" colorway (DH is already coveting that one) and a skein of Wollmeise sock yarn in the "Suzanne" colorway. I've wanted some of this yarn ever since seeing the Yarn Harlot's Wollmeise socks. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Wow. How exciting. I am just blown away. Although, this new sock yarn will require a revision to the sock knitting resolutions that I have been formulating. More on that soon.

Now, fever returning, must go hold Wollmeise to forehead.
