bearing gifts

Dear Annie,

He's back! Thank goodness. It was a long fortnight, but we made it. I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of the hero's welcome that he received when we met him from the train (S running across the platform with outstretched arms, crying "Daddeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!", R chortling away in his buggy, cooing "Dada" and "choo choo" alternately.) I have, however, managed to take a couple of pictures of the goodies that he sweetly brought back for me from the Big Apple, namely his trip -on my behalf- to Purl Soho.

Buttons. Fat quarters in blues and greens - he knows me well! And, as requested, some yarn. The most heavenly soft yarn that I have ever had the pleasure to touch.

Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyed. A truly luxurious yarn for a very indulgent knit. A Purl Bee Herringbone Cowl for me. I've got into the rhythm of the herringbone stitch and so I'm knitting as fast as I can, racing the onset of the cold weather. The yarn is a dream to knit with and it is going to be just gorgeous to wear.

Thank you, D my darling. More than anything, though, we're just thrilled to have you home.

Love from,


PS: Ravelled here.
