March is vanishing
with the leafless winter trees
- each week is greener

Peter S. Quinn

Today's post is going to be all about the yarn and other goodies I received from Quince and Company this week. My most generous dad and stepmom gave me a gift certificate to Quince for my birthday - needless to say, I wasted no time in hopping on the ol' laptop and ordering what I so subtly hinted for a few weeks ago in this blog - 3 skeins of Chickadee in Nasturtium for the Piper's Journey shawlette!

I also ordered two skeins of Quince's newest yarn, Finch, which is a fingering weight yarn perfect for socks. I know. Socks. But the Lupine color is so luscious! Resistance was futile.

After adding these yarns to my basket, I had just enough left on the certificate to order a color card. So glad I did, because even though the yarn photography on the website is stunning, it's good to be able to look at the colors in natural light when deciding (drooling over) which to choose.

What fun it is to shop and not spend my own money! Thanks, D & J, for you oh-so-thoughtful gift!

  1. Dear Penny-

    I like the sound of your latest yarn acquisitions! Suzy and Nancy send their love along with ours--we're all having much fun here in the Florida warm weather.
    We look forward to seeing you Memorial Day weekend!
    I love you! - Dad (Me too, Penny - glad you liked the gift certificate! - Jean)


I hope you're enjoying my ramblings!
