I Got the [Kerry} Blues

While I was in Chicago last week, I received an email from Give a Little saying I had won a prize - I emailed them back to say thank you and send my address. Well with all the training and practice going on I forgot all about it - I never even checked to see what I had won.

When I got home from work today, there was a package for me from England! In it was this:

In case you can't tell - it is the Kerry Blue Shawl knit by Poly. This is the most amazing knitted shawl - it is absolutely lovely - I am in awe!

Here are some more pictures:

There was also a box of Marks & Spencers Viennese Biscuits - butter cookie, orange marmalade and milk chocolate - YUM!! Thank you Polly and Thank you Margene and Susan for starting Give a Little.

oh and here is an update on my angora/alpaca FBS - I am almost embarrassed to put in in the same post as Kerry Blue.

Hi, I don't mean to be a curmudgeon, but your home address is totally visible and legible in that photo! Please take it down, for your own safety.

glad that the shawl has arrived safely and the cookies got there before they melted. IT got there a lot quicker than I thought it would.

fingers crossed for Jeff.. has he considered Bx Sci? That's my alma mater...

I have to say, when I say "Colette" had won a prize, for a brief second I thought-hey, they misspelled my name! I won a prize! LOL
