Yesterday DH went to mail the packages with stitch markers I have made. Well, he did not come home empty-handed. Instead, he brought me a small parcel carefully wrapped in brown paper. I have to mention, that here, in Israel packages usually are not delivered to the home of an address. Instead, we get a notice and then pick up our parcels from the post office.
Now I will humbly admit that I love getting mail. All kinds of mail. But of course, packages are my personal favorite! So I just could not wait to tear into it and let that paper fly! Instead, I made myself hand the package over to Eli, so he could take a picture.
Well, there where two things I have been waiting for. First – a few kilos of yarn I have ordered. If buying yarn by the kilo seems strange to you, I will explain. My current favorite Kauni is much, much cheaper by the kilo. So this is how I order it. Obviously this package was not it. A second thing I have been expecting was a “knitting embroidery” made for me by one of my Internet friends. Marian lives in England and we belong to the same knitting group on Yahoo. A little while ago she wrote to me and told me that she found an embroidery pattern that made her think of me. So she did it. I was floored! I absolutely, positively can not embroider. And if sometimes I delude myself by thinking that one day I might learn quilting, embroidery is not on my life list of skills to acquire. I know it is way over my head. I was also touched that someone MADE something for me. It does not happen often.
Well, enough talk, here it is – the knitting picture. It is going up on my wall tomorrow!
