What a lucky visitor I was!

Remember this post? I was the lucky winning visitor on Babylonglegs.
Today the goodiness came in... and boy, how spoiled we are. Oh yes, WE! Dory was not forgotten. Did I ever mention she adores sheep? So much she pretends to be a sheep a great part of the day! Well, she got a notebook, a ruler and a pen with images of sheep. She took the ruler and book even with her to sleep, I did not allow her to take the pen as well ;).

And there was more. A lovely letter from Sarah and a beautiful drawing from Sarah's son. A hand made drop spindle, perfect for beginners like me, and some BFL fiber to spin.
Also DK pure wool in variegated greens. You have to know how I love these kind of longies and I am plotting to knit Dory a pair like them, because they are so legging like. This DK is perfect to knit them. Will keep you informed about any progress on these leggings to be.
And then... handspun Corriedale. I love the feeling of it!
Sarah, you are the best! xx

Wow you are really spoiled! What a great gifts for you and Dory.
Now there isn't any excus anymore not to spin yourself ;-).

I do like the ribbed longies as well; I'm just not so keen on knitting rib myself. Looking forward to see the progress of yours.
