Guess what the UPS guy brought me today????

No, really. Guess!!

Wait. I’ll give you a clue.

Hmm. You probably won’t need anymore, but I’m so excited I’m going to give them to you anyway.

This is the Wool of the Andes. That’s ten, count ’em, TEN skeins. I don’t know what this wants to be yet, but I can’t wait to start it!

But first…

I must finish the socks.
