The Package! The Package!

It's here! It's here! The package from Gerald has arrived! What generous gifts! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves first:

This is the yarn that Gerald generously gave me to knit for the Duulan Project. Wow! 3 Rowan Big Wool, 2 Lamb's Pride Worsted, 2 Lopi and 3 Classic Elite and some yarn dyed by Gerald himself! I have never worked with these before. Not only will many in Mongolia receive gifts of warmth, I am going to have fun knitting with different yarn! Thanks Gerald!

His generosity doesn't stop here. Oh no. Here come the surprises! 4 skeins of luxurious sock yarn! (Am I over using the exclamation mark?) Two Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Seaside. Two Wildfoote handpainted luxury sock yarn. Mmm... so soft and pretty. Just the colors I like! How did you know?

And that's not all... Tucked in the package are two boxes of these:

PEEPS! I couldn't stop giggling for the longest time! :-) A while ago Gerald did a post on Peeps. I had no clue what they were and was given a detailed introduction to these sweet little treats. Even special tips on how to "enhance" the enjoyment. *wink wink* Should I give them the special treatment? :-)

Thanks Gerald!

How lucky are YOU??? Yarn AND Peeps? Dude, you so rule with that man. I think he's trying to win your heart over.

Now, for the Peeps, open the package a little at one end. (On one only.) Let it sit overnight. Do a taste test to compare the unopened package to the opened package. (I prefer them having been opened. They get a little "firm" from "properly airing and aging overnight". I guess I am a freaky Peeps conno-sewer. lol)

Oh, yeah: knit some pretties.

Hey, you're lucky! Well, and the kids in Mongolia are lucky too. The deadline is coming up soon :)

Jason said...

Oh you such a kidder, Dave! Jerry is just very generous! You know knitters are always gifting each other. You are guilty of such yourself! hehehe You all know that I'm attached anyway.

I knew the topic of "firming" would pop up with the Peeps! LOL

I'm so glad you enjoy them!

Now. I say just make them hard and eat them! LOL

Jason said...

Oh no Matthew, deadline?!?!? arrgghhh!!! I will try to finish as much as I can for 2006. If not, some will have to go in 2007. Not if I can help it though.

Jason said...

Kerry said...

Lucky Jason, what a lovely parcel of yummy yarn.

Can anyone explain to an ancient Antipodean what Peeps are? They're sounding like the latest 'marital aid' lol

Agnes said...

You have Lorna's Lace! And you have Peeps! Oh my ... what a wonderful way to start the weekend!

Jason said...

Jerry, uh huh. :-)

Kerry, I guess Peeps can be "marital aid". But not the kind you think. :-) Looke at what Jerry's friend Trixie said:

Agnes, I need more sock patterns!!! Any idea? :-)

Jason said...

Hi Charles. Jerry is a he. :-) I'd give him a kiss if he were here. My partner would probably give him a kiss too since I'll be busy for a while without buying more yarn. :-) Hmmm...
