Thank you swap-partner!

I got the best package in my mailbox today, I am beaming with happiness.

The package had a purple theme, complete with little ribbons and ladybugs. But i was blown away when I uwrapped it, and spotted a supersoft purple yarn.

I have never seen such beautiful yarn in real life. (Although I get my fix from surfing yarnwebsites looking for skeins) It is called Lucca, and it is now officially my new favorite yarn. I have no idea what I should make of it yet, and I know I need many days maybe weeks of pondering the subject.

Also in the package was two (!) danish chocolates (I have tasted Anton Berg before, as norwegians are chocolatelovers, and I can’t wait to dig into this one) and something I have been wanting to try for a long time: teaflowers! I am supersurprised and very thankful towards my swap-partner from Denmark 🙂
ladybugs
She saved my day actually. I have had one of those days where you are incredibly tired and feel lonely and sad. I just wanted to curl up underneath a blanket and zone out today. But since I got my package, it turned my frown upside down.
See those litte ladybugs? They somehow bring me hope of spring. Which isn’t likely here, since my appartment is surrounded with ice, and it has been raining all day, but hope is always good. The ladybugs are clipped on the teaflowers.

Yummy yarn Ok, just one more pichure of the yarn. It deserves a pichure all by itself. I have a feeling there is chocolate inside the little ladybug too…..

See what I got!

Sockgift!I got a really nice present last weekend, handknitted socks from a good friend of mine. I learned her how to knit socks, and now all her friends (including me) have warm feet! I love the colorcombo the most, and they have been worn non-stop since I got them.

I started a new pair of fingerless mittens today, in pink with turquoise/glittery yarn. They are for a friend of mine, who requested the colorcombo. I had to go to the doctor today, since I have a serious throathinfection, and a hard time swallowing anything. I actually started knitting the mittens there, while waiting for the doctor. I need to stay home from work tomorrow too, so I am guessing it won’t be long untill they are done. If only the headaches and pains in my body would go away, I’d be a happy bunny.

Ok, need to go back to the couch and knit, don’t you feel sorry for me? 😉
