Look what Cookie sent for the girls!

A box stuffed full of yarn remnants! The girls were so excited about it, that they did what I’ve always wanted to do when faced with piles of cashmere, silk, and wool. They rolled around naked in it.

Rolling in the stash

It’s particularly special because Cookie tells me that there’s tidbits of yarn from several of you included. The Barbies think Auntie Cookie is the cat’s meow, and I agree whole-heartedly.

She even included something special for me – some of her beautiful handspun:

Cookie's handspun

It’s awesome! I think she’s been secretly spinning for decades. I’m especially excited because I’ve never knit with handspun before. It’s gorgeous, and totally me – a beautiful heathered yarn, in a mouth-watering plum. I’m a real sucker for heathers and tweeds. She tells me it’s 361 yards of merino/nylon. I’ll have to find something special to make with it.

Maybe I’ll find something to go with hat I’m making, since it coordinates very nicely with that yarn.

Thank you Cookie – you’re the best.

    You and your Barbies are very lucky grrls! Can I touch your Cookie yarn?

    You’re welcome!

    Don’t get excited about the handspun until you’ve knit with it. The jury is still out on my spinning. o.O

    Those ladies are SO lucky! I had that urge in a LYS recently when they had a new shipment spread out all over the floor, but I didn’t have the nerve. You go girls!
