Happy Happy Joy Joy!

I am so doing a happy dance right now.  Actually I have been all day.  Dear sil called this morning to ask what we wanted for Christmas.  I told her a pony.  I think I actually somehow heard her panicking over the phone.  Like “Oh my gosh, how am I going to find her a pony?  And order it online?  And get it to Kansas?”  I only let her go for a minute or so, then I said, just kidding, I’d rather have yarn.  She asked from where.  I told her there’s 2 pretty good sites that I’d love to have pretty much anything from… http://www.knitpicks.com, or http://www.yarn.com.  She said alright, and talked to hubby, her brother for a while.  Then came back to me to ask how many balls of angora I’d need for a sweater!!!!!!!!!!  After I peed my pants at the thought of actually owning angora yarn, I asked what the yardage was per ball.  That took a minute for her to find, and she came back with a figure that allowed me to calculate that I’d need probably 9 or 10.  I think she then did the mental calculation on that total, and I thought I heard a loud gulp.  So, I quickly said that 3 or 4 would make a lovely shawl.  My dear MIL who was visiting, mumbled something in the background about get her the sweater’s worth.  So, oh my gosh, I’m getting a not yet knit angora sweater!  And the best part?  I get to knit it.  After I pet it for a long long time.

    How absolutely FAB!! That’s the most thoughtful kind of gift, because you’ll enjoy and treasure it when it arrives, you can relish each and every stitch (isn’t knitting just such a delicious *tactile* thing to do?) and then, when you put it on, it’ll be wonderful gilding on the beautiful lily you are. I think it’s lovely that your family recognize your art and can provide the best material for you. As we say around here, “Sure beats gettin’ a tie!”
