The girl and the husband are home from Colorado now. Since they were staying in Fort Collins for a couple of days of vacation (lucky dogs), I made sure to point out that there was a really good yarn store there and remind them that Mother’s Day was coming up. I am pleased to report that the hint was successful and they came home with new yarn! It’s not completely clear why he didn’t save it for Mother’s Day on Sunday, but gift yarn is good any day! (My actual gift is going to see Itzhak Perlman this weekend, so really these are bonus gifts anyway.)
The purple is my favorite to feel, very soft and bouncy. The middle teal skein has a mini-skein for heels and toes, hooray! And the pink? So pretty and bright! Plus they even got me a new pin for my collection. They did very well!
But does this mean I can’t go to the yarn store on Mother’s Day now??
