Lots of mail - part III, the sock yarn edition

That's right, I've got one more package to share with you. Yup, last week was an unusually good mail week. :)

My last package is from my pal, Karyn. Unfortunately, not only has her life gotten too busy for blogging, she's also hasn't had much knitting time. And she certainly doesn't see herself knitting socks again. So she kindly offered to send me her sock yarn stash.

Let me tell you, Karyn has some great taste in sock yarn! It's so bright and cheery.



I think my favorite is the Opal in the upper right corner. Mmmmm, so pretty!! Thank you so much, Karyn.

And with that, my mail has all been shared. Oh my, what will I ever find to blog about now? Guess I'd better get knitting!

It's too bad she's having a hard time finding time to knit and blog, but look at the bounty she's sent along!

I completely understand the concept of having a hard time finding time to do the things you love. I'm so glad though that in her situation she chose to send all that yummy yarn to you. You deserve it!

Awwww! Thanks Karen! I'm so happy that you like the yarn. (and that your friends are envious!) You do deserve it! You've been a good friend to me. Enjoy!
Karyn :)
