Sometimes I love getting the mail.

Usually I don’t get anything fun in the mail unless it’s something I ordered or already know is on its way. Bills and junk mail are the norm. A few days ago I brought the mail in here at work and there was a bulky package wrapped up with the rest, but that isn’t unusual.

It was for me. And look what I got!!!

Briar Rose Yarn!
This is Grandma’s Blessing. 100% Superwash Merino. Ummmmmmm.

The cool thing about the colors in this skein is that they are very much like the afghan that I helped create for The Hope Lodge.

This was a Thank You Gift from Kim (Kniterella) thanking me for participating in the creation of the afghan. I want to make something with it RIGHT NOW.

I don’t have a problem with startitis. Why would you think that? ;-)

Which reminds me. I never posted a photo of the finished afghan. Kim let me snitch as many pictures as I wanted from her Flickr set. Thanks again Kim!
Isn’t it yummy? All you need to do for a chance to win this beauty is make a donation to The Hope Lodge. Just click on the link and it will take you to the donation site.

It is also on tour with Chris from Briar Rose till the drawing the end of next month. Check here to see where the afghan and Chris will be in the coming weeks.

So pretty!

Thanks again for all of your help - your squares are fantastic!

We are going to draw a name on 6/21/08, so donations will be accepted up until then.

Can't wait to see what you think up for your Grandma's Blessing!
