Then, I had the yarn but I was still missing two things: what to knit and for who. I suddenly came up with the idea of knitting a shawl for Irene, to whom I had already given a lopapeysa. She will get married in September and I thought that this would be the perfect gift for her and she could maybe even wear it during the ceremony. So, I told her about my idea and she got SO EXCITED about it! Especially because she was thinking about getting something to cover her shoulders and back during the church ceremony and had no clue about what to use! I guess that my idea came just at the right moment for her!

Irene's shawl got really excited, almost beyond words, because I have never used Loðband and most importantly because the shawl will be part of a very special day in the life of a very special person :)

Oh, and I was forgetting that when Irene and me were at the store she insisted in letting me let her buy some wool for my stash (which was totally uncecessary). Then I thought of a friend that I would really like to surprise with either a shawl or a shawlette... so she gave me four skeins of a pale rose (I am not sure about how to call the color) einband that now are waiting in my stash to become a shawl :)
And the last thing for today... On friday I got really excited bacause when I got home around six I found in the mailbox a notification from the post office saying that there was a package for me! Finally! After three and a half weeks the box that my sister sent me from Chile had arrived! I went to the post office as quickly as I could. I got there at 18.03 and it was closed! (at 18.00)To my disappointment I had to wait until monday to go get the box.
I got my old Zenit camera! (along with merquén and roasted peanuts) I had totally forgotten that I had this camera until I saw Genieviève and Kristina use theirs! I hope that mine is still working!
Happy Eastern for eveyone!
¡Feliz Pascua de Resurreción!
