I haven't mailed out anything yet - I'm wondering if someone else sent you a wooly envelope of goodness?

I signed up as an Armchair Traveler, feeling a little guilty about spending so much on myself with Christmas around the corner. I kicked myself every day since then, until Christmas. My husband dropped a few odd hints, so I logged on The Great White Bale and noticed that I had been gifted an Explorer membership! I can hardly believe it, and have hugged him so hard so many times that he probably needs a trip to the chiropractor.

He orchestrated this surprise with Clara! Can you believe it! I wonder how many other people were surprised this way by our queen bee. :-)

Dear "Wouldn't you like to Know" a/k/a "Knitter with a Grin on her Face",

Thank you ever so much for the you-surprised-the-heck-out-of-me gift of Armchair Traveler to the Great White Bale.

Please excuse my very tardy thanks. I feel like a slug--I thanked who I thought it was and just found out that it wasn't that knitter.

I asked our Dear Jane to tell me so I could properly thank you but Jane's lips are sealed!

That was so nice of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Love,
Me

Oh this is a make me cry moment. A reason why I love knitters and their big hearts. The world can snipe and snark, but a kindness bestowed and the universe unfolds as it should.

xxoo,
Martha

Martha, I can tell you that knitters and knitters' sisters, husbands, mothers and friends have made me the happiest Director of Customer Happiness ever. I've been keeping secrets, sending gift emails, and watching as the lucky knitters register and join the discussion.

Yes, knitting kindness does overflow, just like our stashes!

The next installment will be posted on Friday, folks! Clara is in Texas, hugging the Bale before it leaves for Maine. The adventure is underway!

I'm planning to take one of my skeins to the beach tomorrow, get bundled up, and begin knitting Not Plain Jane's "My Thirty-eight". I'm so happy I signed on as a voyager, especially since I've now received my shipment of Lot #1.

Finished my use of Lot #1. First I dyed it with KoolAid, then I knit it into this shrug.

As I await lot 3, I think I have settled on the arrow cowl
by madeleine tosh for lot 2. Now I just have to decide which is background and which is foreground!
