Well, don’t I feel special?!? Lookie what my blog friend Renée sent me! This lovely parcel arrived in the mail yesterday – I love snail mail – and what a lovely surprise it was!

  • TWO balls of Lano Gatto Wool Gatto!

  • Baby theme stitch markers (go to FroggieMeanie to see them - March 22, 2007 post. Try as I might, I cannot get a decent picture of these little markers. Renée’s superior photography shows them off to perfection!);
  • A lovely book (I’ve already read it and love it. The illustrations and story are great and, I really enjoy the textured parts of Bee) for baby and I and
  • A very nice knitting based card from my pal, Renée!

My son, I am one lucky, lucky duck!

Renée is somewhat responsible for me starting my own blog last summer. I really enjoyed her blog and wanted to comment on one of her posts when – lo and behold – I tried to register to make a comment on blogger and ended up with my own blog! Renée is a very patient and generous Knitting ‘Jedi’ Master and has done her best to keep me from the dark side of knitting (I think that means synthetics – remember the old Phentex slipper yarn/stuff/what was it anyways – ewww!). Renée and I are both Newfoundland and Labradorians too so we don’t need to translate certain words for each other, as we sometimes do with those around us (e.g. squish).

Thank you very much for the continued welcome to blogdom, knitting expertise and motherhood, Renée! I shall not forget you when I move to the land of Fleece Artist and Baadeck Yarns!
