Back to the world...

We're just home from the services for Grandma in Los Angeles. They were good, we're sad, we're tired and drained -- as expected.

I got home to a wonderful package from my Other Secret Pal! A great surprise at the end of a difficult trip. I'll post pictures Thursday when I'm back at work, but there was sock yarn in gorgeous colors, patterns to use with them, and a Kacha Kacha!! Woooooohoo. I haven't used one before and didn't realize how robust they are, nor that they could lock so you don't mess the count up. *excellent*. You have no idea how frequently I have to count and recount because I've forgotten to put hatchmarks on a piece of paper. This is exciting -- I look forward to using it.

THANKS, Other Secret Pal! Your timing was excellent. These are cool goodies. And Grandma would be pleased.

Welcome back home. You need some knitting to bring you back emotionally. I have never heard of a Kacha Kacha. Anything that helps with the counting has got to be a plus.

Sundara has shipped my yarn!

I am so glad you liked it!! I love my little Kacha kacha...it attracts alot of attention when you have it around your neck ...ooooo what's that???

So sorry about your gramma's passing. I was fortunate also to have my gramma into my adulthood (39 years). She meant so much to me and not a day goes by that I don't think of her...
