A Knitty SP Package From 4551 Miles Away

Megan simply rocks. She is sneaky, too. All the other packages she sent me indicated that my SP was from Saskatchewan - but it turns out she lives in the Northwest Territories, above the Arctic Circle!

Here it is in all its glory:



Two skeins of Classic Elite Attitude (so soft!), a beautiful wooden box with a maple leaf on it, Dempster Dregs coffee (this should be interesting!), an Inuvik cookbook (I'm excited about all the rhubarb recipes in it, but I think the musk ox and moose recipes will elude me... I've had those meats and more, but they are not readily available here), a gorgeous ceramic mug with an inukshuk on it, the cutest snowman stitch markers, and a breathtaking Northern Lights stained glass ornament (picture below).

Here are some close ups of the mug art and the stitch markers:



Isn't this lovely?



I've only seen the aurora borealis once as a child in British Columbia, but it can't compare to what Megan and my sister Teri (who lives in the Yukon) see.


Since I had some great afternoon light I decided to take a picture of the merino wool Megan had sent me in her last package, and very unintentionally the skeins ended up in a somewhat salacious pose:



Blue and green love each other...

And just for Bezzie:

My chives are growing!

What a nice package!

And yay chives! We need to grow something this year. Maybe I'll pick up a few pots and seeds this weekend. :)

A Canadian SP. Lucky you. Leave it to you to have amorous wool.

Bezzie said...

Wow, chives. I can't grow chives to save my life!

Hooray for "up north" Canadians. You haven't lived til you've eaten moose by the way ;-)
