Hey everyone! Today I got my 21st birthday package from my grandma (Yes, I’m a college student but my grandma is so sweet and still sends me a huge package in the mail - we’re really close and she’s the nicest grandma ever).
Well she had asked what I wanted and I gave her a huuuuge list of yarns I like that they sell at my LYS and just that I especially like purples, greens, and blues - well she went there and had such a great time with all my friends there! So cool! I had given her such a large list of options that I knew I’d still be really surprised when she got me anything. But seriously guys, she couldn’t have picked out better yarn for me if I had been there with her! It’s the best yarn package ever! Check out the loot:
This is basically my favorite yarn ever, in my favorite colorway! The people at the LYS must have rememebered this is my favorite colorway, or my grandma is an amazing guesser - I’m working on a lace scarf out of this same yarn, and I also knit my first pair of Monkey socks and gave them away to this amazing lady. But ever since I knit up Monkey socks with this, I’ve wanted to make a pair for myself… teehee! Now I can!
Oh yes, she got me Noro Kureyon Sock yarn… I WANTED IT SOOO BAD! Once again, I don’t know how she got it sooo spot on, but here we are! Love it!
They must have just started carrying this yarn (like, in the past two weeks since I’ve been here) because they’ve never had Lion Brand yarn before. But this is actually a really soft nice wool! I looooooove it, too, and it’s a beautiful color!
So that’s what my grandma got for me! She did the BEST job picking it out, and it’s just sweet and thoughtful she went to all this trouble for me.
I’ve never drank before (even a sip) but my 21st birthday will be spent drinking my first glass of Merlot and knitting with friends. Can’t think of anything more incredible! :knitting:
ETA: UPDATE!!! Two days later I got another package in the mail and wondered what it could be. So from that very same Grandma (who is on a fixed income, and doesn’t own any shares of Microsoft that I’m aware of…) got me MORE YARN!!! Her note was so sweet and said that a girl only turns 21 once, and it’s just a really big occasion. She can’t share it with me and wanted to show her love in the best way… yarn! lol She knows me so well! So I got two skeins of purple Lion Wool, two of blue Lion wool, and two purple Vanna’s Choice (sooo soft!)
It’s not about the yarn, even though that’s obviously amazing. I’m just so blessed with thoughtful caring people in my life!!!
