Surprises!

Sometimes when friends or relatives take a trip, they come home with surprises. My little bear, Koda, took a trip to Georgia and arrived home on my doorstep Monday.

This yarn was in the box with him - what an unexpected WOW! So, I will leave these nice bright colors out near my desk until they "tell me" what they want to be. The sunshiny colors will be welcome cheer on dreary, cold days.

I have read glowing reviews on Spud and Chloe yarn, even looked for it locally, to no avail. I think they stock it at Loops in Tulsa (a great yarn shop if you are in the 'hood), but that's a 2.5 hr haul from here. I am always hesitant to mail order yarn that I haven't had the chance to pet and snuggle against my skin, and I haven't had an excuse to go to or through Tulsa lately. This yarn passes the snuggle test with flying colors (ooo.. pun intended!).

Re: my last post.... DD called Sunday.... her cell phone died for no apparent reason. I think it's contagious. Bleh!
