Just in –Scrumptious from England!

Receiving packages from far off places reminds me of my childhood.  Between a godfather in Scotland and a father away, for months at a time on business, it was always a special day when something arrived from either of them.  The odd-looking currency on the postage and each country’s unique air mail stamp would have me imagining what the place of the package’s origin was like.  (What was up with the pokey looking flower on the chain that Uncle Mike had just sent?  Had Dad actually met Baloo this time around?)

Even receiving packages now from abroad elicits that same excitement.

The new ‘Scrumptious‘ yarn arrived the other morning.  It’s to be made into a baby sweater for nephew, K.  just as soon as both these gloves are done–and boy, am I anxious.
