I know you are Very Busy at the moment, and that you and your elves must be hard at it making all those toys and things up there in Lapland. So I thought I’d help you out a bit.
I saw that Gerard and Craig from Iknit had been to America and smuggled in brought back some yarn. Their newsletter came yesterday, and when I saw what they had in the store, I knew that I had to have some. So, thinking of you, you understand, and wanting to save you some work, I made a detour on my way home last night and stopped by the Iknit shop.
Helpfully, they had a scarf already made up of the yarn. It’s the kind of yarn that doesn’t come one’s way very often, the sort that really, really needs to be touched to be believed. If clouds were warm and dry, or if candy floss was not sticky, this is how the yarn would feel. It is so soft that it feels like nothing in your hands, as though someone has merely breathed warm air between your fingers.
Of course, as I was shopping on your behalf, I didn’t look at the yarn, and I promise not to take it out of the bag until Christmas morning. I’m sure one of your little helpers will be kind enough to wrap it and put it in my stocking, maybe after your’ve been?
I hope you don’t mind. You know that I have been a Very Good Girl this year, and I promise to keep on being good between now and Christmas.
