Kinda like Christmas in July

When you don't pick up your mail for a week or more.  (Side note: there is NO mail delivery here, you have to pick it up from your box at the post office.)  Catalogs, magazines, paychecks, packages - all sorts of fun stuff.  'Course two of the packages were Traveling Scarves, those I don't get to keep, just knit on and send back out into the world. (Which is still mucho fun.) But one nifty little surprise item I do get to keep!

This pretty little row counter bracelet, handmade and sent to me by one of the participants in my Traveling Scarf Group! Wow - what a sweet thing to do and totally unexpected!  I've heard of row counter bracelets of course, but I've never had one before so this is going to be fun.  I wasn't able to take a decent shot of it on myself, so I found someone else to model it for me:

This is most undignified and certainly not in my contract.
You'll be hearing from my attorney tomorrow.

I think I've been doing a fairly good job with the turnaround time on these traveling scarves so far, they usually head out to their next destination within about a week.  So I'm going to let these two rest for a couple days while I finish up one sock project and start on another one. Not necessarily in that order of course!

Our mail is delivered to our boxes near the entrance to the complex and I often wait for a few days before going to pick it up. It's in a locked box so it's safe...and it's mostly bills anyway! But isn't it nice to find those kinds of surprises in there? Makes it worth the trip!

Your model is just stunning, BTW!
