Hubby: Honey . . .
Hubby: What did you order from Canada?
Me: [Stalls for time. I don't remember ordering anything. Did I order something? Have I maybe been ordering from the Internet in my SLEEP? If I did, what account did I use?!?] What?
Hubby: You had a package at the post office. I had to sign for it, give a blood sample, finger prints, and show ID.
Me: Really? [NO! No, other than that KnitPicks order--which he knows about because he helped pick the color of the yarn, I have NOT ordered anything. Unless I DID order something in my sleep. Could I do that? Did I have Paypal, maybe?]
Hubby: The package says "books and yarn."
Me: The only thing I ordered recently was the KnitPicks ::inches towards door:: [Ooh! I don't remember ordering it, but books and yarn DOES sound like something I'd order. Where did I get the money?!? What kind of yarn is it? What COLOR is it? Is it a knitting book?]
Hubby: :::raises eyebrow suspiciously::: Hmmmm . . .
I tore upstairs to find the package. I read the label. I don't recognize anything. It does indeed claim "books and yarn." I try to open the package but it's industrial quality plastic and it won't give. I find scissors in the kitchen and open the package, unceremoniously dumping the contents out onto the table. There are three Latin books and a bag of sock yarn. I smile. Hornblower has sent back the Latin books I sent her to see if she might like the series. Ooooh yeeeeeaaah . . . Hornblower is Canada!! The sock yarn is just a bonus. I like the color way. I open the bag and squeeze it. It looks and feels a LOT like Claudia's Handpainted Merino sock yarn, but it's not her label, so I look more carefully at the label. Oooooooo! Koigu!!
I've never actually seen Koigu in person. It is VERY soft and a very pretty colorway that has just enough pink in it to make it entirely inappropriate as socks for anyone else in the family. Heh.
Yay, ME! I get to keep the sock yarn, I have NOT been ordering books and yarn in my sleep (Phew! Ya never know!), I am NOT in trouble with hubby, and I have my Latin books back. All's good!
