MARCO............POLO

My best recollection of Marco Polo (although given my cognitive fogginess at times these days those recollections can be spotty at best) involve my adolescence, a swimming pool and some serious blood sport (I don't think what we played could be called tag as much as it could be called water polo derby). Those days are loooooong gone but I did a Marco Polo on Monday (I promise to try and be a bit quicker on these things....where's Ed, the mad poster when you need him...LOL). I got my Yarn Aboard Spinning in the mail last week and it was here when Ed and I got back from Gone Stitchin' on Sunday (I WILL post about that this week). My MARCO....... POLO came from Stephanie, hailing from Georgia. And, there was no water, no pushing or shoving or death grips involved! Stephanie did me proud! Zebra needles, needle case, a lovely candle (and cool box) from Namaste, a very cool magnet of two wooden sticks and a ball of wool (how appropriate for me although I forgot to take a picture because I put it up as soon as I got it!) and two books; Knitticisms and A Dyer's Garden . Pretty awesome! Oh yeah....I got some rovings too! (Just joking of course; that is the point of the box right?)

Two lovely bundles of rovings. The top is Ashland Bay Dyed Ingeo in Bordeaux (if I was well I would have been prepared to do the push and drown move in the pool for this baby) - the colour is gorgeous, and the bottom is Ashland Bay Multicolour Merino Top in Rose Quartz - also very very nice. Thank you so much Stephanie! I love my loot. Love it! Thanks to Amanda for running such a great swap! You rock chick!

The game was never this fun......well okay, maybe sometimes!

Glad you like it and that you're feeling better! the magnet will not fall off your car. Mine's been on for a couple of months now.

Enjoy!

Love the roving! Stephanie did a fine job. Marko Polo was our favored childrens game, too. Hopefully you're feeling better.

Dorothy said...

Gorgeous rovings! You got a great package there. Marco Polo, the swap, sounds fun.

The roving looks amazing, and the zebra needles too cool!

amanda said...

The rovings have me drooling! Absolutely stunning. And the rest of the goodies too -- you so do need the candle so you can relax and get aromatherapized (I swear it must be a word!). Thanks for playing in YA again my dear!

Great stuff! It's so fun to see the box -- it came to me after Amanda.

What stunning fibre! I've been wondering how you are. Have you fully recovered (or as much as is possible) from your illness yet?
