Once Upon A Time...
Once upon a time, there was an awesome blogger who had a drawing on her blog.
And I went there and read this:
" The Random Number Generator ...
... has spoken and the number it chose was 9! Also known as Alwen! Alwen, if you would be so kind as to email me your mailing address I will get your yarn into the mail post haste!"
And I thought I had sent April my mailing address. I really did. After a couple of weeks, when I would drive down my driveway and see my mail box by the road, I would think, "I should check my email sent box and make sure I sent her my mailing address."
I have one of those positional memories: if I'm taking a walk, I notice the grapevines and think, Must remember to bring the pruners down here.
In the house, leaving for the walk, I don't remember the pruners. Only on the walk, when I see the things I want to prune out of my way.
Finally, at the bottom of the driveway one day, I scrawled myself a cryptic note: Check sent email - April - mailing address?
And eventually, after searching through a couple of email addresses and their Sent boxes, I realized that NO, I had never sent her my address. So I sent a very apologetic, hand-over-face embarrassed email and got an immediate response.
Three balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed. The color is called "Cocoa" but to me it's more of an oatmeal or maybe a granola, with tiny bits of burgundy in it.
I think it wants to be a hat.
Thank you so much, April, and I apologize again for taking so long to get back to you.
Meanwhile, those of you who have been waiting for me to have snow: we're getting snow.When I took the photo, brilliant sunshine and snowflakes.
I hope this tufted titmouse soaked it up, because it's overcast and gray now!
