Pink Packages



The thing about Pink Packages is that they are addictive. Much like jaffa cakes. You have one, then you want another and another and another. Pink Packages however are not like jaffa cakes, because they don't cause the waistline (ha! what waistline?) to expand at an alarming rate. True they cause a bigger hole in the bank balance, but when faced with such beauty, who could resist? Not me for sure. I am weak-willed, greedy, smitten. I love Posh Yarn. I love Pink Packages. And truth be told, I quite like jaffa cakes too.

So have you really never heard of a 'boob tube' America? Think yourselves very lucky. They were yet another fashion disaster from the 80's. Best left alone. I only ever owned one - it was bright pink and was part of my costume for a school play (not sure if you'll believe me, but I was a fairy in A Midsummer Night's Dream) Don't ask. Just leave that subject well alone too.

Infact the mere memory of that play has left me feling very unwell. Need a jaffa cake.

Ha, I'm too young to have owned a boob tube. But I do have a cat called Jaffa Cake.

You could do a gorgeous feather & fan comfort shawl in that camel....

Hmmm...I'm feeling the need to be comforted (should the shawl come to be a reality!)

I'm also sitting on the edge of my seat awaiting my own pink packages - a tiny one from the blow-out sale and a much bigger no-so-much-on-sale parcel from this past Sunday.

ps: Jaffa Cake? can't say we've ever met...

A seasonal suggestion for Tipsy Jr. - a hot water bottle cover. And you could use it as a bag in the summer months! Kathryn x

ps: got the first of my two Pink Packages in yesterday's mail!

Note to anonymous: maybe you've not been gifted with a pink package because no one knows who you are and, thus, can't know who it is wanting a little pink treat...Well, that and the fact that many of us are too selfish to part with our hard won Posh Yarn!

Everyone, this note is not actually in response to today's posting, but I wanted to announce that Oliver's blanket has made its way here to the U.S. and it is glorious! Far more amazing than even the most amazing photograph can say. I am honored to have it in my house. If you knit a square, thank you! I'm going over to Emma's blog right now to put a few more dollars in Oliver's Fund.
