Over the Rainbow

Every once in a while something comes along that leaves you practically speechless. A few hours ago, after a very trying day with Daddio, who was once again at the hospital for tests, the post arrived. In it was a surprise package from dear Valerie of  Wandering Cat Studio.

She runs a dye business (with her equally talented mum) called Wandering Cat Yarns over on Etsy and on many occasions has kindly offered me advice when my misadventures have warranted it. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the package and was immediately transported to springtime.

Not only did she send me this lovely skein of pretty Alley Cat but she had even named it Araignee's Rainbow. I don't have words to express my gratitude.

If you have never read her incredible blog (she knits at the speed of light), seen her patterns on Ravelry or visited her shop, you are missing out on the opportunity to be amazed.
I can't thank her enough for lifting my spirits in a way only fiber folk can!


  1. such a lovely wonderful gift. I LOVE the bright color way. The kitty marker is too darn cute. I'll go over to her site now!

  2. I'm glad you like it. I was hoping it would arrive before Christmas, but I mailed it a little late. Sounds like it arrived at just the right time though!

    1. I LOVE it! I am pretty sure it is going to become a pretty pair of Undine in the very near future. Thanks again!

    2. I can wait to see it knit up! Mom wants me to make more - she fell in love with it instantly

  3. Beautiful gift!
    prayers for Daddio.
    and hugs for you.
