THANK YOU

It's here, it's here! My ISE scarf has arrived all the way from Finland! It's a beautiful, soft, breezy, PURPLE scarf that is just so gorgeous. My wonderful pal Hanna sent it to me and she did a fabulous job. She also sent me lots of goodies including some wonderfully soft yarn, some unbelieveably small needles and an adorable little Finland Hippo pin. He's just too cute! There was also some chocolate in there, funny but I just couldn't seem to find it to photograph it . . . . Sorry to have been missing in action from blogging for over a week but things have been a bit crazy here with 8th grade graduation, end of school parties, dance shows and swim meets. Summer has officially begun! We are very excited that our first trip of summer is coming up soon. We are off to Alaska in a couple of weeks and I plan to take you all with me! If the internet connections work as I hope then I will be sharing the trip with all of you as we go. Keep your fingers crossed!

Great scarf... lucky you!! You can take it on your Alaska trip! I LOVE Alaska. It's great in the summer because night never seems to come! (It's still light out at 1:00 am!!)

Hey, I can't figure out where to send my hats.... they haven't responded from the website I went to... Any ideas?

(I was picturing the scarf being photographed in the midnight sun, Stephanie style, as I typed that.)

I have always wanted to go to Alaska, unfortunately DH has no desire to go there. I guess for now I will have to enjoy my virtual vacation.
