Love the mailman

The mailman came to my door today with a box with a smile on it. You know what that means.....

I ordered the "Knitted Lace of Estonia" by Nancy Bush and "Hats On" by Chgarlene Schurch. I'm not person to jump onto any new book, I check out the patterns, I find the best prices and see who offers free checking and who offers all I want, so I only have to order once. Well, Amazon had all of the above, so I expanded my small library and I have to say I love them both. I've been eyeing the "Hats On" for a while and Pat was very "helpful" in providing one great project after another. I think this is called enabling? Well, she is very good at it. Thanks a lot.

The lace book is just as great. I think there is only one pattern in there I'm not drooling about and that is it. You'd think the choice, which one to start with, would be hard? Not at all. I just pull out my lace yarn, see how many skeins and yards I have and go from there. Sounds easy, right?

Now let me get back to drooling. I'll talk to you soon.

Did you finish the gorgeous red twisted cable knit? Wait, that was yesterday. Not even you can be that fast.

Fun stuff in the mail! Leila is a cutie, if a handful.

Presents from the mailman are the best!

I have Hats On already and Estonia Lace is on my wishlist. I love my mailguy too. As long as it's the one that sorts the mail into the correct boxes and brings me yarn. :-)

I want that lace book, too...normally I do the same shopping around, but with Nancy Bush, you really can't go wrong.
