Man, I wish it was all mine, too! Just like Christmas when I was 4! LOL
So I come home from work today to find a box I have been *eagerly* awaiting.
It's the Knit Picks order that I put in with my friend Jenny from Linköping, Sweden. As you may know, our compatriots in Europe are unable to order from KnitPicks.com because they don't ship outside the US. They do offer free shipping only over $50 though, but since I can't really afford $50 all at once, I rarely order from them myself. So a few months ago Jenny and I worked out a deal where she and some friends put together an order and then paypal me the money, I place the order (plus a few skeins of my own) and it comes to my house. I verify the order, take out what's mine, and let her know what shipping on the box will be to her house and she paypal's me again, and the box is on it's way to Sweden! It worked so well that she decided she wanted to give it another go.
There's is something thoroughly therapeutic (masturbatory ?) about sorting through all this yarn!! I just love touching it all and seeing all of the yarn all laid out on my floor!
So here's Round 2: (it didn't even fit in one picture!!)
The colours they chose are just GORGEOUS and the baby alpaca lace yarn that Jenny's bought to do her 12 shawls in 12 months challenge feels like HEAVEN. This order is seriously larger than my entire stash! LOL
So let this be your tease, Jenny! hehehe It'll be at your house soon!
PS - if any of my other friends outside the US would like to do this, let me know! :)
