My Garden Grows

Nothing quite like a package in the mail to cheer up a terrace-less Annie! The other night I checked my snail mail and I had a package. I ran to the package room, saw the word "yarn" somewhere in the return address and ripped it open. A beautiful, tissue-wrapped, stickered bundle was inside. My first Sundara "Petals Collection" had arrived! (I thought about taking a picture of the initial tissue-wrapped thing, but it was night, the picture would be crap, and there was no way that I was waiting to open it 'til morning)

The first yarn is Calla Lily, and I think she captured the colors perfectly!

I'm not sure when I am going to knit them up, but I do plan on using the pattern that was included.

I have never ordered from Sundara before and was tickled with the packaging and the details. It was so cool to recieve and am very glad that I signed up. I definitely want to order more yarn from her. Her site is going to updated on July 3 so definitely check it out.

Crap. Why is it that RIGHT NOW I remember that I put myself on a yarn diet? Maybe one hank of lace yarn...

Those colors are fantastic! They are very summertime...A dose of July in the middle of January. We knitters must always think ahead. Sorry about cheating on the yarn diet. I crashed my diet about 6 times already.
