Blue Moon Fiber Arts boxChristmas comes faster and faster the older you get. I mean, look at this: it came in August this year!

Long story I won’t go into the details of now, but, Tina of Blue Moon Fiber Arts really really liked my Backstabber shawl. I’m not sure why it’s always a surprise to me to find that a person has actually read my blog, but hey, she’d seen it and she really liked it. So… A few days after I talked to her, you know what showed up in her mailbox. And I had way too much fun doing that.

There was a return address on the box, of course, so here you see what she got back at me with today. Tag, I’m it. I can make another Backstabber colorway shawl, and there’s enough yarn to knit for a bunch more people as well. Christmas! Maybe I can make it come again this year before August is even over. Cool! Thank you, Tina! I particularly like the saying on the card she sent with it, that the strongest thing in the world is a woman with an open heart. I’ll extend that to men and children–it is amazing what you can learn from the emotional straightforwardness of a child–and add a fervent “Amen!”

Alison, what goes around comes around and in your case that is always good.
