Today I came home from work and there was a parcel waiting by the front door. It was from Tina of the Knitting Blooms videocast. I had won a prize a couple of weeks ago and I was lucky enough to win some of her handdyed yarn (the color I got to choose myself). It is merino fingering weight and is lovely and soft. I think it will sit in my stash for a little bit as I havent decided on a pattern as yet. It has 400 yards so maybe later I will check out ravelry for ideas. It didnt take long to arrive either as she just posted it off last week. Mail in Australia seems to take ages to arrive from one state to another for some reason which I dont really understand why when overseas mail can arrive here much quicker. Oh well I am just glad it arrived. Thank you again Tina. If you have watched her videocast you should pop on over and see her and her kitties too (she has 5 cats you know) and is a wonderfully fast knitter.
