|A delightful package rom GerryART|
The most surprising and joyful aspect of my foray into the blogsphere has simply been the many friendships I've made across this vast universe. Ravelry has been a huge component of these friendships, too, but it has truly been through blogging that some very special people have entered my life. Some of the earliest were Erin, Andi, Julie, and Kirsten, all of whose blogs are a great inspiration to me. More recently, I've developed special friendships with Wei Siew (I think we must be family!), Cara, and Gail. But it's a new friend I want to especially write about today: Gerry, one of the grooviest women I've met in a long time.

Over on her blog a couple of weeks ago, she posted a giveaway and I just couldn't resist throwing my name in the beanie. Lo and behold, her very clever husband picked my name out and over the weekend, this is what I received!

Gerry wrapped each part of this package with her own little touch and it felt like my birthday (my favorite occasion of all) as I unwrapped each surprise. I've been wanting to cast on a toe-up sock pattern and this yarn will make a gorgeous pair. Thank you, Gerry, for sending me this oh-so-lovely package and introducing me to a new yarn ... I thank you and my stash thanks you!
