Awaiting me when I came home from work was a parcel, all the way from Thailand.
Riki, the great knitter I met in Bangkok had sent me a gift. N helped me to open. The two round things have actually nothingto do with knitting, unless your outdoors summer evenings :-) They are mosquito coil holders made out of old cookie boxes.
Riki sent me wonderful silk yarn and a stash of kool-aid. The yarn has a great structure, now I need to figure out a project worthy of the yarn. Since I've never dyed before (Kool-aid or other) I need to find myself a beginners project :-)
