In the mail

I always love getting mail and the last two days have been especially good to me. Yesterday I got two skeins of Blue Moon lightweight Socks that Rock (Rooster Rock colourway) in the mail. These skeins are part of my payment for knitting a pair of sample socks for Cookie A's upcoming book. If you look at the PDF my socks are the purple ones that appear on the back cover. I knit the socks back in April but I will wait to post my pictures until the book is actually out (and I know what the socks are named).

This morning the mail man delivered 8 oz of Crown Mountain Farm's Corriedale Pencil roving (Twilight colourway). I won this after donating to Trampled by Fleece. They are raising money to help pay the drug costs of a knitter and philosophy undergraduate who has Lyme disease. This roving is actually an early bird prize; the final raffle will be a t the end of this month.

Sadly I doubt any fiber or yarn will arrive in the mail tomorrow.

WOW Jen!! That is totally awesome about the purple socks on the back of Cookie A's sockbook! Woo hoo!

Love the pencil roving too! You are so lucky! Have you got a project in mind for the pencil roving?

Oooo good! I'm glad your roving arrived! The Canadian postal system can be so slow. Thank you again for your donation - and for the mention of the fundraiser on your blog.
