Bag of happy

Somehow I managed to win a contest over at http://mspalmtree.blogspot.com/, Nancy's blog. She'd asked for knitting tips, so of course I had my smart mouth on that day and suggested "Stop knitting after two or three glasses of wine. You'll cry less the next day."

Well, this is what she sent to me:



Two skeins of this beautiful 100% wool Palermo (just the name makes me drool!) and a little sachet to keep the buggies away. It smells sooo good!



But what made me sit in my car and laugh out loud for the longest time was this:


I started reading it that night. It's very funny and just what I needed.

How's that for appropriate?

Thank you, Nancy! I love it all!

What gorgeous yarn and I will have to look for that book! I'm such a lightweight (read: cheap drunk)...I have to stop after just ONE glass of wine..hehehe

How was the book "Knitting under the Influence?" Do you recommend it? By the way, your knitting blog header is very nice.
