And I didn't even get to the best part!!!

Okay--so when Chicken was helping me open yarn packages in the car yesterday, she said, "Here's a yarn magazine, mom--I'm putting it in your yarn bag, 'Kay?"

"Okay," I responded, trying not to crash the car and ogle what was coming out of the packages at the same time.

So I didn't see it until today, when I was grading papers in MacDonalds, hoping for a break from the papers (which I made some serious inroads on, and I'm very proud of myself).

And I was thumbing through it, loving the fact that it was from a whole different place, I saw a pair socks that I really loved. And a quirky little article on 'Casting off' and guess what?

CERI DID THEM BOTH!!!! She wrote the pattern (and SERIOUSLY, darling, I was thinking "Ooooooohhhh, best thing in the book..." before I saw your name) AND she wrote the article, and I know this person--she sent me stuff, and I'm SOOOOOO tickled.

Best MacDonald's visit EVER.

Ohhh, Sweetie, you are a survivor! Taking the kids to Macdonalds to keep them from total boredom while you get those brain-sucking papers graded was an act of genius! Applause! And the yarn and magazines and all sound sooo appealing! You are due for a Good Christmas!

Oh - I haven't caught up on blogs for days - I'm so glad they arrived safely - and even gladder that you like them!

The CDs are great, the yarn was dyed by the wonderful Irene at jolly jumbuck and I thought you'd like the colours and you must knit something just for you!
And I'm very chuffed you liked the mag and my socks - truly, first socks I've designed and I'm as proud of them as you are of 'Vulnerable'!

Happy Yarnmas!

What a wonderful surprise to brighten the season. Almost makes up for grading all those papers!
