Bad hair day

A bad day at work (another story) ended in tears today. I know I shouldn't, and I suppose I will make reanbean feel awkward. But that's me, and this is my bad hair day.


I came home, found a note in my mailbox saying there were some yarn waiting for me at the post office. I thought it was the yarn I had ordered through eBay, and thinking it would cheer me up I went to get it. So, I did not think much about the size of the box (I have ordered a lot *blushing*); it was huge.

But looking inside the box over dinner making, finding a lot of Palette, I got confused, and it was first when I saw the letter from my swap partner at Ravelry I just started to cry. Of course because I was happy about it, but also because it was so unsuspected, such a big gift to get on a Thursday! On a very bad day in all other respect.
Not only yarn, but needles from Knit Picks, chocolate and a pattern for Latvian mittens. My DH was equally surprised finding me in tears with chocolate!

Thank you reanbean, I hope someone will make your day too! And - there will be mittens :D

  3. what a great prezzie!! I am hoping to "surprise" you when I finally get back to the US (and can mail something) with some Palette in black, which I know you always run out of. You have been our mitten guru, and we love to look at your work.

Jeg blir kjempeglad for alle kommentarer, selv om jeg ikke svarer hver i sær :)
Dessverre har jeg måtte skru på ordrebekreftelse fordi jeg får så innmari mye spam. Håper ikke dette gjør det altfor vanskelig for deg å kommentere.
