Doin' the Happy Dance!

It's here! It's here! The box came to my house!!!

I had just checked the blog today to see what was going on with the stash, and I read Jennifer's post and looked at her blog to see pictures. When I read that she had put a skein of Socks That Rock into the box, I just about drooled! I have been wanting to try that since I have "heard" so much about it online. I even left a comment about how I CRAVE that skein of yarn, but what were the chances it would still be in the box when I got it?

Even as I was typing that comment, the box was waiting for me at the post office!!! I was so excited when I saw it! I couldn't wait to open I didn't (wait, that is).

Let me tell you, I hunted and hunted for that one skein. I began to worry, because the box had split a seam and I thought maybe the S.T.R. had escaped. Finally I caught sight of it, and now it is sitting here at my keyboard where I can look at it and pet it occassionally. I won't ignore the rest of the box, it's just that I was SO wanting some of this yarn and I couldn't believe the timing of the box's arrival.

Anyway, the box is here. I will ponder the contents over the weekend and probably have it on its way early next week. Here's a picture of my new treasure keeping me company at the comuter and, just for fun, I added some of the knitting quips I've been collecting.

(I don't know if you'll be able to read those.)

Thanks, Ann, for a great idea!

My time with the box

Well, I post wondering where the box is only to find that it was on its way to me! I've blogged about my experience with the box on my blog. I had a great time with it, and it came on the perfect day. It was quite an experience to see the huge size of wooly goodness show up on my doorstep, and then open it up and see all the loved yarn given by generous knitters. I also enjoyed adding my own donation to the big box of yarn love!

Hello From Your Baaaaaad Host

August always kicks my butt -- I should remember that. Next year, will one of you guys be in charge of remembering that for me?

Jennifer's got the box and it's ready to go... only a few of the new additions left. If the box hasn't gotten to you yet ( I think I know who you are, but if I list you then you'll know where it's going and that's not nearly as much fun as having it show up on your doorstep) could you please send me your street address? Send it to konzen at sbcglobal dot net.

It'll be done with its travels by October I think and I'll have it back. Do you think any of my original stuff is in there?

Where's the box now?

Just curious! How many of us are left too? I still have to spend time with it. I have some lovely lonely yarn that'd like some friends... :-)
