I am so lucky!!!

80% Coopworth 20% Mohair
"Wild Rose"

My sister just sent me the most wonderful birthday present. My sister has been knitting for years and also has a spinning wheel and makes her own yarn. I called her last month to see if she had any yarn and would send it to me. I thought it would amazing to knit something with her yarn. She said she had some in her stash but it was earmarked to make a sweater. She said she had some roving but didn't have the time to spin it. I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me tonight when I got home from work. It was not one but seven skeins of yarn, and a little lamb that she had knitted. I am so excited I can't believe she sent it, I wanted to jump up and down with joy, but I couldn't because it was really late and I would wake up everyone. So Thank You Carol!!! I love it and I can't believe what a great present it is. I believe I will enjoy every stitch, every strand of yarn that passes across my hands while I make my creation.....

That is beautiful yarn, such a pretty color, and so special since your sister spun it herself. I have not yet learned to knit, but just found a place that offers classes, so hopefully I'll be able to learn soon. I hope you'll post a picture of whatever you make with it.
