A small but special gift

We have all scurried back into lock down here.  Two young women returned to Queensland from Melbourne and lied on their entry forms and then tested positive for the virus.   From the list of places they had been since their return it seemed everyone knows some one who had been at the locations listed.  The lines at the testing clinics are long, with most people having to wait hours to be tested, but better safe than sorry.

So looking at this small gift made by a friend it has added a ray of sunshine to my life.  Some times it is that special small gift that touches you.

Janie only started knitting a few years ago when her first grandchild was due.  Since then she has made some lovely things and come to appreciate the value of good quality yarns opposed to the cheap one.  So, the washer she has knitted me is of a linen/cotton mixture, soft on the skin, and the soap is destined to go into my underwear draw.  Such a lovely smell.

When I visited we had to make a stop at the yarn store that is near my city townhouse.  I have avoided this place for a few years knowing that the yarns would be too beautiful.  Plus, it is owned by a friend and I wouldn't be able not to buy some thing.   Yarn Glorious Yarn is all the things I thought it would be.  I was very good and only bought a couple of balls of the Linen/Cotton mix yarn but I saw all these beauties.  I will have to return.

That flannel has a beautiful colour combination. Good to get a ray of sunshine in these times of darkness.
