I know, Im so so sorry! Im a horrible partner! every time I think to upload them, I'm in the middle of class. I forgot to bring my laptop to work today, so I'll do it when I get home. Im writing myself a note right now.

one kid at the sitters, one asleep on my lap, so I post.  Grin
My package was perfectly timed, it came on a day when my car broke down twice, ended up at the mechanics, and both the husband and I ended up sick. As the Yarn Harlot says, here, look at some wool.

My pile of happiness. Clockwise from the right, 24 yrds of a bulky teal merino. 250 yrds total of a green and red corridale. And 90yrds of recycled sweater yarn, dyed with koolaid! The red and green corridale are both just gorgeous. No really. I'm still petting them and trying to decide what they will be. Maybe after the holidays. 8-)
And Eliea threw in a surprise for my two munchkins. Sock monkeys! I could have cried from the sweetness. Ok and from the cuteness, I will admit. I've never seen a sock monkey in real life, and I suddenly understand.
The monkeys got munches of approval from both kids, though I only have picts of one.

Ok, I'm gonna have a moment here. THIS is why I craft. THIS is why I swap. My husband gives me grief sometimes about time spent on packages. But then I show him things like this. Someone who has never met me or my kiddos was willing to make me yarn, go an extra mile and throw in extra yarn and some toys for my kids. It restores my faith in humanity and helps me get through the day. So, I'll spend my time making things for other folk. Hopefully they love the things I send as much as I do.
Oh, ok, sorry about that deviation. Back to your reg sched program.  Grin
Thanks Eliea!!
