After Work Yesterday

It was the Monday of the last week of school and a beautiful day. So, I had a bounce in my step as I walked home. My favorite flowers are in full bloom, like this:

and this:

And best of all, look what came in the mail:

These luscious goodies are from Andi of My Sister's Knitter. A while back, I was the lucky winner of one of her give-aways. And I was VERY lucky.

Let's take a closer looks at the Great Lakes Tweed. The good news is that she has plenty more yummy skeins in her Etsy store.
Quaere Fibres also has a tempting selection on Etsy. And Andi is so thoughtful. She picked out Hanukkah Self-Striping Sock Yarn for me.
Both of these skeins are so beautiful that I'm not sure they'll turn into socks.  I'll need to be patient; sooner or later they will tell me what they want to be.

Thank you so much, Andi. You made my week! And it's a week when I can use all the support I can get!

  3. So pretty! I just finished a pair of socks in a colorway very similar to your orange one. It was like knitting with fire-such a warm and cozy project for last winter.

  4. My mother called that first flower a "flag". Down here they call them irises. Either way ..........beautiful.
