That's what friends are for...

Look what my friend MissyFee gave me last night

Foxymoron

It's a skein of sock yarn dyed by Knitabulous in a great combination of greys, punningly named 'Foxymoron'. I'd been very disappointed to miss out on acquiring this when it was posted in Knitabulous' shop, which doubled the pleasure of Fee's thoughtful gift. I'm not even planning what to do with it. I'm just gloating for a while. And being grateful for friends in times of unavoidable emotional stress.

It is so very you, that yarn, a lovely gift from MissFee - knitting friends are tops aren't they - they always seem to give the right gifts at exactly the right time.

What a perfectly chosen gift.

I hope your current stresses soon pass.

I didn't know about any stress, but I did know the suprise was on it's way. So glad you liked it.

And you know your request for an 'interesting grey' was the inspiration for the pun in the name, don't you?

And I'm sorry there is a rough patch. Hope it all smooths out soon.

Bespoke handpainted sockyarn - that's sounds like a wonderful stress remedy. Hope it works.
