It arrived — my Knitter’s Treat Exchange parcel! And all the way from Australia….
There was a lovely card with a “Spiny Devil” lizard on the front, full of kind words and some neat facts about my KTE pal, Cathie!.
Now, these “Temptin’s” look remakably similar to the Tim Tams my SIL brought back from her travels to New Zealand a few years back, so of course we had to investigate:
And some pencil Roving! Is it merino as well, I wonder; it has a “fuzziness” to it that intrigues me…
Maximus was little help identifying the fibre, but he was certainy interested in it! And yes, he’s in the shipping box.
And last but never least, the magazine: “YARN”*, an Australian knitting magazine (and a feature on drop-spindles, nonetheless)!
It’s quite a good publication, very pretty glossy pages and an interesting range of article topics. I wish I could get a subscription!
Thanks so much Cathie — You RULE!!
