The stash has reached the Potato State

The box arrived in Idaho last week. Unfortunately, I've been down and out and unable to go through it...but tomorrow is the day. Stay tuned for all the exciting details.

In Transit!

The box headed off this morning for parts unknown to everyone except Ann and me. I thought I'd share with you Zarah's contribution to the side of the box:

Better than a post card, is it not?

The box weighed in at 22 lbs. 2.4 oz., and they charged an extra $2.90 due to the dimensions of the box itself, which is odd because they didn't do that last time and it's the exact same cardboard box. That box is still in decent shape, but it will probably need replacing after a few more visits.

I've had fun with it, and I managed to be super restrained in taking from the box, so I send it along with hopes that everyone else has as much, if not more, fun with this!

All Packed Up and Ready to Go!

Well, I checked out the contents of the box and I was very, very good. I took one skein of Some Assembly Required sock yarn and that's it! I am trying to knit out of my stash through September 30, 2007, and I was bit worried that I'd go crazy when the box arrived due to my self-imposed yarn purchasing restrictions. There were a lot of things that tempted me -- like Zarah, I really had my eye on that Lopi, too -- but I managed to exercise some restraint.

I won't show everything that I put into the box, but I slipped in a few things along with the big contribution, twenty skeins of Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim Aran (still in the yarn shop plastic bags) along with the pattern book for the yarn. Last go round, I put in a few skeins of this and that, so this time I thought I'd contribute enough so that someone could actually make a full sized item.

So, now I'm just waiting for the identity of the next recipient of the box, and it will be off on its next stop!
