Contest Yarn

The yarn that I won from Lisa's contest came yesterday! The mail always comes at the very last second before I have to leave and go get my son from school. Yesterday it came even later so I waited (I saw the mail truck down the road)... our four year old said 'I wonder if we will get a box?' (I think my kids like getting mail as much as I do!) and sure enough, the mail man brought us a box!! :D Thank you Lisa! I opened it in the car since I was running late... I couldn't see what all was in it til I got home:
Look at all the yarn! All different colors and kinds... wool, acrylic, and chenille (?)... I love scrap projects and now I will have even more color options to play with. And, four new crochet hooks, too! Thank you, Lisa!!
By the way, I tried Lisa's recipe for Chicken and Veggie Bake, and it was soooo good! Last night we just had leftovers since I had so many, and we had so many of the potatoes and carrots left over (plus three pieces of chicken, too). So I warmed it up and it was just as good the second time around. (Actually, I thought it was better, since the flavor 'sunk in' more...) Thanks for the recipe I think it is going to be a favorite for our family, too.

Thanks Mimi. I have already started a 9" square for the Pine Ridge reservation, with the pink/blue/white variegated.
