A very nice end to Shabbat...

This time of year, Friday afternoon is the Shabbat scramble - trying to get ready for Shabbat before the early sunset....not always wasy and often chaotic.

So I had a wonderful Shabbat evening - services were good as usual, the congregational supper afterwards was excellent.....and when I got home, there was a package waiting for me.

So, being good, I put the box aside to open after havdalah... the torment was exquisite, with it sitting there, knowing that it contained yarn.....

Fortunately, I had an invitation for lunch after morning services, which took me out of the apartment all afternoon, so I wasn't sitting here just looking at the box ;-)

Needless to say, as soon as Shabbat was over, I tore open the package.....which was wonderful. Thank you, Shannon! Two skeins of Louet Gems (fingering weight, in a wonderful eggplant...), wo skeins of Plymouth Happy Feet in a gorgeous teal-ish green, a skein of Rio de la Plata (superwash sockweight), a skein of Artful Yarns serenade (cotton and angora... pink and orange with touches of white), and one skein of Sugar & Cream - in nice spring colors.

Lots and lots of fun knitting time ahead of me out of that box, it looks like.... worth the torment of waiting until Shabbat was over!
