There is a good peleton of folks knitting the Sunflower Field Shawl during the Tour de France over in my Ravelry group. Amy’s a great hostess, and it’s certainly not too late to join in! Also, don’t forget that it’s also possible to win a prize even if you want to just be a spectator.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the Tour de France itself given that I’m rooting for team Leopard-Trek and that I’m a fan of Thor Hushovd. It’s been exciting so far and there’s still more than a couple of weeks left in it!
A fun surprise
You may not realize it, but Canada Post was on strike/locked out for a couple of weeks. I missed the mail, but when my first items after the strike were a bill and some advertising I felt let down. When I tried to explain it to my husband I told him that it was the possibility of something nice coming that I’d missed. As I put it into words, I realized how weird it was to think that something nice might possibly come out of the blue.
Yesterday I was proven right! I found a key to a parcel compartment which contained a shipment from St. Denis Yarns. At first I wondered if I’d made an order & then forgotten about it, as I’ve certainly considered buying their yarn. Then I wondered if a kind friend had sent me something. When I got home I found kits for Sam & Samira:
Cool! When I checked out the St. Denis blog I found out that I’d won a contest by signing up for their newsletter. What a lovely surprise!
