Goodies from far away

I got a surprise in the mail on Monday! Some goodies from my friend Linda (who is still blogless, despite extreme pressure...resistance is futile girlie!).

This stunning skein is from The Barefoot Spinner.

Check out these fall colors...This fibery goodness is a blend of mohair and wool from Persimmon Tree Farm. Can't you just smell the leaves burning with a hint of steaming cocoa wafting in the air? Sigh...at the time of this writing there are just over 95 days until the first day of autumn, and well...yes...I realize the first day of summer hasn't even arrived yet! L-B, do you have my back on this one? :)

And check out the bag...it's pink!!! I heart it!!!

That stitch marker is absolutely perfect!! Even Mr. NK thought it was cute!!

Thank you Linda!!! :)

all of those colors are so great - I love them! Also - I'm so amused that you're already counting down to Fall, though I don't blame you. I am not a Summer person.

Also - there's wifi in the hotel room here (my mom and I are staying in the Hampton Inn)!

I've always got your back!

I will dance in the Summer Solstice in celebration that the days will get shorter and shorter as Autumn grows ever closer!

Looks like we have matching skeins from Persimmon Tree Farm! Is Linda conspiring a KAL? ;-)
