Yarn Babies!

Last Tuesday, two litters of yarn babies were sent my way from various parts of the country.  When they still hadn’t surfaced today, I called the post office (a much more difficult process than it should have been) and asked them to check for stray packages.  (That wasn’t so easy, either.)  They found them both, so I biked over this afternoon to rescue them.

They were not happy about being stuck in a bin in a warehouse for so long, but otherwise unharmed.  Now that they are home and have some sunshine, they’re all much happier.

These little guys are from Teacherfish’s swap on the BlankieMania Rav group.

They are all twenty yard mini-skeins of fingering weight yarn that will be turned into mitered squares for my sock yarn blankie.  I can’t wait to start playing with them.

There are also some bigger baby skeins.  Toddlers, even.  These are from Sniggle’s Three Irish Girls sample co-op.  They might not be as darling as the wee-teensy skeins, but look how pretty!

On the left are quarter skeins of Maeve and Alana on Elenya Alpaca (Mmmm, alpaca….) and on the left are quarter skeins of Cameron and Cian on Lindon.  A little eighth of a skein of Emer on Kells is in the middle.  I have no idea what these are going to be, but I’m excited to see the colors in person, and play with two bases I hadn’t seen before.
