It was a grey and dreary day, one filled with more HP Tech Support Bite Me moments. And just then, a ray of sunshine came through the clouds: A package from the Royal Post from my pal from Florida, Jennifer. She is spending some extended time in my favourite place in the whole wide world, London, and she sent prizes for the Red Scarf Project. That's the luscious selection of Fyberspates yarns on the right. A lovely skein of sock yarn, and two skeins of Blue-Faced Leicester (omygod, is that stuff SOFT and squooshy!)
If you knit a red scarf and let me know about it, you could have a chance to win these lovely, lovely yarns. So what are you waiting for??
Now, perhaps equally important, on the left are the things Jennifer put in the package just for me, me, me! Jennifer tells me that she wasn't so sure about the inclusion of the Marmite (I love the new SQUEEZABLE bottle!), but her knit group insisted. Heh-heh, I have to tell you, Jen and group: I did not intend it this way, as I had bought some nice things to cook for dinner -- but I was on the phone for so many hours with HP support -- I went all the way to corporate, where I told them that I had reached the end of my rope with HP support and they'd better start refunding my money and they'd better start thinking about revamping their entire support system, and, oh, it's all a long story that I can't even tell, I'm so exhausted from the rage -- so I had Marmite and cheese on toast for a relaxing and comforting "supper" while I prepared to try to lower my blood pressure and watch LOST. Then I ate several HobNobs during the show. So thank you, Jennifer. It was a wonderful thing you did. Not so good for my waistline, but good for my soul. Thank you, thank you. I'm going to go now and fondle my skein of BFL in the colorway "September." Thank you.
