What the?.....



This the season for surprises... Last Thursday there was an unexpected package squished in my mail box. I did not order any lighted knitting needles, hot pink, size 9, but there they were. It was too late in the day to contact the shipper, but did so first thing the next morning. To their credit, Fabric.com, was courteous and amused by the mixup. I had ordered a skein of hard-to-find red yarn two days prior, and somehow someone elses needles got sent to me. The nice lady said "keep em" and I said "uh, I don't want em". She said "I wouldn't have any use for em either, donate em to charity". Well, Earl Grey loves em. He loves flashlights, etc. Maybe I'll take to knitting in the dark, anything's possible. Thanks Fabric.com. My conversation with you made my day. Ho Ho Ho!!

What a neat thing to happen for you!
I have a set of those needles and guess what...
Two summers ago our electricity did go out and I used the light on the needles and they lit up the room. My hubby was very impressed,LOL!

Goes to prove sometimes surprises come in small packages. Enjoy them, give them a try, you may be in for another surprise.

OH how funny! Sock Knitter is right; if the electricity goes out, you can still knit. Merry Christmas from Thistle Cove Farm.
