Surprise from Switzerland!

Last night, when I went to get the mail, there was this mangled package. It felt like wool, but I hadn't ordered any. Hm. Quick look to the sender - CH! Who do I know in Switzerland? Closer look and all was revealed:
Manuela from Switzerland a fellow blogger, who I've been corresponding with for some time now, surprised me with no less than my favorite sock yarn - Trekking XXL - and such lovely colorway too!


There was a note on a sheet of a Diddl note pad (my daughter used to LOVE Diddly Mouse, when she was young and we still lived in Austria). Our mail box key has a Diddl key chain. ;o)

What can I say, but Thank you, Manuela!

Once again the kindness of another knitter amazes me. I'm speechless, dumbfounded, hugging those two balls to my chest! ;o)

Great surprises like that are too much fun! My friend Jan gave me some little sheep stitch markers for being brave and trying a Turkish restaurant.

Surprises like yours are good! Do you have a favorite color?

So jealous! I love Trekking! Yes, surprises are awesome! Have a happy Friday!

ps. I finished the cabled cardigan. If it weren't 80F Degrees I'd still be wearing it but it's just too warm. Can't wait til winter.
