I have a huge public apology to make to Sally. In my post of three days ago, I said that up until last weekend I had owned no lace weight. That was untrue but a genuine oversight.
I've been reading Sally's blog from her first post and earlier this year, I won one of two blogiversary prizes [the other went overseas] - part of which was a ball of lace weight silk. I didn't ever published the photo of my prize [very remiss of me] because at the time I won it we were having a lot of wet weather and I couldn’t get WM to take a photo. Then I got my own camera and took photos - but still didn't blog about it. Oh, Sally, I'm so very sorry.
So here, dear readers [I hope Sally's still one of them] is my fabulous prize from Sally. Firstly, the cute little case in which the goodies came [of which I'm sure I took a photo but can't seem to find one]. Inside, there was a lovely card with knitting and a cup of tea [my favourite beverage most of the time]. Then something that made me smile - a pompom maker; what else from someone who calls her blog 'PomPom'? There was a delicious Terry’s chocolate orange [not knitting but what every knitter needs - sweet treats] and finally, a ball of hand-dyed 2ply silk from Mollydale Knits [of Armidale NSW]. The smaller photo is a truer colour on my monitor.
So dear Sally, I'm really sorry - how could I have overlooked this largess. The bag really does sit on the right end of my desk [I'm left handed] - open so I can see the contents. Occasionally I even handle the yarn and think about what it might become. I did offer it to DD for her wedding stole but she wants something in ivory. A thousand apologies, my friend, please forgive my oversight.
