Why I love my mailman.

Ok, so I just got some awesome yarn in the mail. Yesterday I recieved 2000 grams of 100% silk recycled sari yarn. It is sooo cool. I mean, really. And then today I got 2 pounds of handpainted 100% wool yarn from a nice lady in New Mexico. It smells really nice too. I think she must have dyed it with kool-aide. I have been collecting beige colored wool yarn for a couple of months, because I am determined to do some home dyeing soon, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. It is a pain because we live in an apartment, and we don't have our own washing machine or dryer, and all of our surfaces are white. I'm scared that if I try to dye anything, the dye will drip off while it is drying and stain the floor or tub or whatever. That is why i've decided on kool-aide's supposed to work really well on wool, and kool-aide comes out of floors and countertops, and whatnot.
The mystery box of yarn that I wrote about in my last post showed up, but I didn't want to write about it because it was really a disappointment. They sent me eyelash yarn. 8 skeins of it. I was horrified. They also sent 12 skeins of red baby yarn. What do you do with RED baby yarn? I mean, i'm not a pastel kind of a person, I like bold colors for babies, but you know, not red.
Oh, well, my sari yarn made up for it in the scheme of things. I am once again at peace with the yarn world.

I am making an octopus (stuffed) out of orange boucle yarn. If I ever get the camera to work, I will put up a finished picture.

So, farewell for now, my adoring fans...
