Apparently the good people at Canada Post still have to work on Family Day — my Mmm… Hot Cocoa swap package was delivered to my door this morning!
What’s in the box?
A whole host of winter-blues-busting treats!
Meet Harry the Hedgie, who came with a lovely note of introduction.
Some awesome foxie stitch-markers!
Super-soft merino yarn:
KnitPicks Harmony needles, size 3.5mm (I sense I am on the precipice of a very slippery lope , here!)
Mmm… organic chocolate, and gourmet fudge-sauce/hot chocolate decadence!
* * * Joy * * *
The gods of spinning really do have a way of aligning things just so. Through an amazing series of potentials and possibilities*, this weekend I have taken home this:
Ashford Joy portable spinning wheel, double treadle.
She’s come with a great carry bag, 6(!) Ashford bobbins, a repair kit, and…
A WooLee Winder, complete with 4 bobbins.
I can’t believe this wheel is now mine!
My two wheels: Fortuna, and the new (as yet unnamed) Joy.
Pardon me, I have to go drink hot chocolate and spin now…
*I’ll tell the whole tale later; just trust me, it was a lot of coincidence and good timing and luck.

Ooh! Lovely goodies and what a beautiful new wheel!! Yay for presents! :)
So glad you liked your package and I know you will love the Harmony needles. I certainly do! You got such great pictures of Harry, better than mine turned out. I really enjoyed this swap. Take care.
I was just talking about hot chocolate ….
Congrats on the new wheel! (I need to find me some of that kind of luck!)
this looks like the greatest package of a lifetime!
I am so happy you decided to adopt the wheel. May you have many hours of enjoyment at her. I salute your good fortune by raising my distaff and shouting “huzzah!”
Happy mail! Yay! and a wheel, too. I am sooo jealous.
