In Transit

The box is now in transit and should arrive at its next destination within the next week.

Here's what I took out of the box:

It's three skeins of Rowan Kid Soft, destined for a scarf from Scarf Style, and a skein of Karaoke. I don't know what I'll do with that skein, but the colors and the feel of it called out to me.

Here's what I put in:

Two skeins of Koigu KPPPM, two skeins of Knit Picks Ambrosia, two skeins of Knit Picks merino, and a skein of Cascade 220 (which did not make the photo).

The box was in rough shape, so I followed the lead of Sisters before me and taped the postcards to a new box, adding my own postcard. I know this isn't Yarn Aboard and I wasn't obligated to take the box on any adventures, but I did drive around for a few days with it in the back of my car and we drove by a couple of post offices. The first post office had just closed. The second post office was open, but I had to park way down the street and there was no way I could carry the box that distance. (It's not *that* heavy, but I hurt my back.) So, my husband bravely took the box to the post office earlier this week. I think that the joy of having a large box of yarn leave the house was enough to keep him from feeling any anxiety about going out in public carrying a huge box covered with postcards.

Thank you, Ann, for organizing this adventure, and thanks to everyone else for playing along -- it's been a lot of fun!
