First of all. The yarn. This is my first experience with Sundara yarn and it is gorgeous -- the green ball is "ochre over lime," I believe, and the other "calla lily." Merino. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. Photo is recycled from yesterday because I like it.
Sheila, the giver of my magic yarn ball, thought I might not want to wait for a surprise, so hinted that I might want to unwrap the ball of green to reveal a treasure to help "make your knitting glide thru your fingers!!"
At the center of the yarn ball was a tin holding a LaviShea Lotion Bar in the Aloe & Green Clover variety. Oh.my.god. I want to try them all! It feels absolutely divine on my hands, not greasy at all, and I love the scent -- I'm a yarn-sniffer, anyway, and I love the idea of imparting some of that on the yarn as I knit. Katie was over doing laundry and I had her try it -- and she asked to use it again before going home. I applied it a couple of times, myself, and made sure I slipped the tin into the tote I'd be toting today.
Yay, it's Friday!!
