Swimming in Cotton...a bit of Alpaca, too...

Friends are wonderful...and they surprise us with packages...My friend in Louisiana, Sarah, sent me a box full of yarns! She shared some that she had received from someone else.

Sarah, thank you so much - the yarns are gorgeous...and I am going to have the best time knitting with these...
Killian would also like to thank you for his present too - the box - the minute it was empty, he was in it. I quit spending money on toys for him...this is what he likes...

A little natural undyed Alpaca....

Crystal Palace - cotton...pink - very soft pink

A little blue Crystal Palace cotton!!!

Tahki Classic Cotton - really soft and pretty...

And this is some Bernat Cassino (a skein and a half) Cotton...

Unger - Cotton Crepe - eight skeins...I love Unger yarns!

A little turquoise Crystal Palace Cotton...lovely shade...

And, finally some Patons Cotton Top...soft, soft, soft...
I'm so excited - I enjoy knitting with cotton - especially for children and for myself...
Sarah, you are truly a gem!!!

BEUTIFUL YARNS! It is rather uncanny how much Silky and Killian look alike. The one little thing that Silky had on his front chest was a mark that we first thought was car oil---We gave him a bath. IT DIDN'T COME OUT! LOL! So, in a funny way, Silky was a tiny bit of a Tri-Colored Cat...though not enough to make him the Unusual Male Tri-Color. Other than that, they could be brothers, for sure!
