My Prize, and an Oddity

Yesterday I wrote about winning a prize from a yarn shop hop. Today I picked up the prize...10 skeins of yarn!

It is a bulky weight yarn and I have no idea yet what I will do with it, but I've already looked to see what others have done with it on Ravelry's website. I probably won't have time to touch it until after the holidays anyway.

Before leaving the house this morning, I noticed a piece of paper had blown onto our porch. It was a receipt, an old one with a carbon backing. Note the date.
 
It is not my receipt. That store no longer exists and I never heard of it 25 years ago. The receipt was for an exchange of one skein of yarn, one color number for another. 

How odd that it would show up on my porch. Maybe a ghost of knitters past has come to haunt me!

The only thing better than bulky yarn right before the holiday knitting season, is FREE bulky yarn!

Happy knitting!

Weird on the receipt business.

I hope you find something nice to make with your free wool!! How spooky about that receipt though. Very strange!

Yowsa! That is too great. And it is pretty too.

And I don't know where you found that pic of the ghost knitting but it is perfect. I love it. Spooky fun.

I do believe you're right; The Ghost of Knitters Past.

That really is neat that it blew up there. It's even neater that it still exists.

BTW, for some reason, you blog stopped showing up on my home page. It only shows up as this (*)

Obviously, I've missed posts and I would have missed it completely today, but I got curious about the random (*).

Is that odd? Or did you do something to change yourself to *... the blogger formerly known as Knitty??

I'm sure you will come up with something wonderful to make with the yarn. Nice wooly socks, maybe?

The receipt is very odd...might it have been with the package of yarn?
