surprise package

I <3 mails, especially these kind of mails.


Thanks J, I love the bolero, everything is perfect, from the colour to the fit. And the lovely green yarns, the first time I see yarns wind in this way. So what am I going to do? Get G to loop it in his two arms while I wind them into balls?? Lols.

I'm going to use this lovely yarns for this pattern that is on my to-do list. Perfect isnt it?? I do not have any idea the yardage of those yarns, I do not think weighing them will help, I haven't quite figure out how to guage by weight. As this is a patchwork design, I can easily cut short the sleeves or length, so I don't have to worry about running out of yarns half way. Smart move?


My BFF, thank you so much!!!

So glad it arrived in good condition. Even gladder that you like it. :)

I don't think G will have the patience to help you with the winding. Each skein takes me about 30 mins now but in the beginning, it took at least an hour. I drape it on a clothes hanger and work from there.

The two skeins will definitely be enough for your intended pattern. It's lovely, by the way.
