Random Post

Quite awhile ago, GirlAnachronismE lamented how difficult it was to get sock yarns in Nottingham. So, what's a girl to do? Well......

I sent her a package of sock yarn love from Wisconsin, of course.

Well, yesterday I went out to get the mail (finally) and discovered a package in my mailbox. The first thought I had was, "I'm not expecting any packages until next week or the week after" (items from The Plucky Knitter should be coming) I was confused.

Then I noticed said package came from England.

Do you see where this is going?

I checked the return address and it was from the lovely Emma :)

Contained within was a handmade thank you card (cross stitched, no less - something I haven't done in quite awhile), a huge (seriously HUGE) package of Cadbury Chocolate (as in Cadbury Creme Eggs - which I love in any way, shape or this was just the chocolate and I love chocolate in any form)...and there was a little hat for Little Man. It's the Nottingham Hat by Melissa Mall.

Mama! I like this hat!

See Mama? I still like it!

Mama! I like my hat!

Okay Mama, I'm done. Take it off now!

It's difficult to photograph the cables correctly and when I took the photos last night, it was dark and we have a really bright light in the kitchen. So, you can hardly tell it's cabled at all. I promise it is and it's lovely.

I wasn't expecting anything at all and the package was lovely. Thank you to Emma!

I hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday :)


  1. Yay, I'm so glad you got it and that the hat fits!

  2. Love his photo shoot; you should frame that.
    Knitters are the best aren't they? We're generous besides helpful and love springing surprises.

  3. What a delightful surprise, both for her and for you!

  4. Great hat, and what a cute little model :-)
