How Lucky am I?


How lucky am I to receive some heart puffs from my sister?  We had a phone call a few weeks ago where she asked me to please buy pink salt because it's healthier for me than table salt. I am a salt addict and proud to be one.  Being a funny big sister, I said "why don't you send me some".  So not only did I receive some 'healthy for me' salt but heart puffs that are now displayed in a large vase on my side table.  Thank you sister!!!


How lucky am I that Amy over at Amy Hood Arts sent me the red elephant postcard she made when I expressed my love of red?  I was so excited to open my mailbox and see a red trunk peeking out at me, she says it will bring good luck!!  Thank you Amy!!


How lucky am I, that my left hand has been behaving and I can knit on my lace shawl.  Maybe it's because of all your well wishes that it has healed OR it's because I gave it a full 24 hour rest and haven't touched any cotton or dpns since then.  Either way, I am so thankful and have a full heart of happiness.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you, may you be lucky enough to receive a wonderful surprise from someone special.  Or treat yourself to a special gift.

Now to share some blog love, Erin over at Midnight Fiber and Fabric Studio has started a podcast and you should give it a listen if your looking for a fresh new voice.  She also has a ravelry group started. I enjoyed hearing her talk about my favorite past time--knitting!

(I was going to laden this post with photos of a foot of snow but I thought maybe a foot of snow is just ordinary views for many of you)  I am still loving the winter, the snow, and the cold.

  2. Your sister is right...the pink salt is healthier. I am having a hard time finding it locally, which means I will probably need to resort to ordering it online. The heart puffs are so pretty...love the elephant post card...and that pink shawl is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the finished product! Happy Valentine's Day, Karen!

  6. Beautiful, colorful post! The hearts were such a sweet surprise, as well as the red postcard. Red is one of my favorite colors, I would actually frame the card. :-) LOVE the shawl!! I still have quite a bit of the purple yarn leftover from my lace shawl, this may be the perfect pattern for it. Have a happy Valentine's day and a great weekend!

  7. Happy Valentines my friend! I love that your sister sent you salt. And I LOVE that your hand is feeling better. Have a wonderful weekend. And I think we are supposed to be getting more snow?

  8. You are lucky and loved. Happy valentines. Glad that your hand is better and that you can enjoy your lovely beetroot pink knitting. And the snow..I wish we had some here but maybe we're lucky that we haven't, because when it melts it would add to the flooding. So I'll just enjoy the snow drops for now and the lovely photo's that you've been posting.
    I hope your luck continues over the weekend
