Well, the Yarn Aboard box full of fiber arrived at my house courtesy of Captain Morgan. It came stuffed full of pirate booty (don't laugh - this was in a book I read to my daughter and she thought it was hysterical). He brought some beautiful white wool (maybe I can try some more dying experiments), Good Vibrations superwash merino from Crown Mountain Farms (gee, I better get to work on my CMF The Beat Goes On roving!), a pattern with 6 different scarf patterns, chocolate, a great little project bag, the cutest elephant tape measure, coffee, a notepad, and a beautiful handmade necklace which I'm looking forward to wearing. The Captain had stopped by Cathy's house before visiting here and she sent the most wonderful treasures. Thank you Cathy and thanks again to Amanda for organizing this. And she really does deserve extra thanks for all she has gone through lately with this swap. Hopefully now everything will be smooth sailing.
Unfortunately, I did make the mistake of introducing the Yarn Aboard Captain to the Captain that had already been staying at my home (see picture at the beginning of this post). And then I made the second mistake of leaving them alone together while I went off to sleep - I guess these Captains are used to later hours than I. Well, it was a few days before the Captain was ready to take the new booty onto his next location but I am glad to say that he has left this port and is on his way to the next one. It shouldn't be long - 2 days I was told by the harbormaster. So I wish Captain Morgan smooth sailing.
And for Carrie who asked for some more "puppy" pictures - I leave you with one of a very lazy dog. Maybe she was up late partying with the Captains too??
