Loose Threads: Good Mail Today

Good Mail Today

The mailman brought me some good mail today.   My friend, Val, from Canada sent me this beautiful alpaca yarn that is sock weight along with a nice card.  It's not my birthday or any special day, she just decided to send me a surprise.  This yarn is so soft.  I need to get busy knitting some socks before it gets much colder. 
In early July, she sent me these fingerless gloves that she knit.  She is an awesome knitter.  I don't usually do anything quite so fancy.  I have these in my pile of things to take with me to the Dear Jane retreat in Shipshewana in a couple of weeks. 
I've been up in my sewing room stitching all afternoon.  Maybe in a couple of days I'll have some photos to show you.  Hope you all had some time to stitch today.

Hi LuAnn,
this alpaca yarn looks very soft. It is a nice present from your friend Val. The fingerless gloves are looking very difficultto knit.
I'm very interested, what you are doing now in your sewing room.
Have a nice day and greetings from Germany
