Don't worry; the yarn arrived safely.
We made it. And after only one weekend in our new place, I have to say, it's not looking too bad. The tv is mounted, the bed frame is assembled, the kitchen is [mostly] unpacked, and the yarn has all been acounted for.
And to announce the randomly selected winner from last week's giveaway, the one and only entry, my dear friend, Heather. Thank you for your input and support, now and always. In the upcomng weeks I will be putting together a beginners post, includng suggested projects, materials, and techniques.
In the meantime, I'm off to battle the uproot-your-life induced sleep deprivation!
