I love all the goodies I received from my pal Janice. She did such a wonderful job. The colors are perfect especially for this time of the year. I also received these great monkey slippers to wear around the house to protect my socks. The yarn is STR in a wonderful blue colorway. I have never used this yarn before so I am eager to knit it up. Not shown in the picture were some dried banana chips-which were already gone by the time I took this picture.
Thank you Janice.
