Joy in a Box

Some days ago I received a package in the mail.  One I was eagerly awaiting!!  I think packages in the mail are super exciting (even if you already know what's in them hahaha)
Well, this package finally came...


And look what was inside!!!  Gorgeous - don't you think?!!  I was super pleased!  I ordered this pretty stuff from Knit Picks - trying out their new acrylic yarn since my temperamental skin does not appreciate the loveliness of wool - boo!


And I am so happy - this is working up so nicely - a soft and cozy throw to snuggle up under on my couch,. worked up with the bright colors of Spring and Summer.


I am loving this project - I think it will take most of the summer - what with the garden and outdoors calling - but in those spare moments when I can grab my hook and work at it - pure joy!!!

Blessings,
Christine

The colors are so pretty together, Christine! Love it! Wow...you work fast!!

Thank you for being you and for your sweet comments! You're a blessing and I sure covet your prayers over the next 10 days!! I have an intestinal problem that I am on antibiotics for, and stress can aggravate it! No stress...nope...just two weddings 7 weeks apart!! LOL

I'm pacing myself so it doesn't flare up!!

Hugs and love to you, sweetie!

SO pretty!! I wish I could crochet or knit...I used to LOVE doing both, but my hands just can't take it anymore. :( Post pictures of your progress, I'll live vicariously through your pictures. :) SO pretty!
