Yarn and Chocolate

A surprise parcel arrived recently, all the way from Australia!

I won this contest at OzKnitter earlier this year but forgot all about it. Inside the package was a box of Arnott’s TimTam cookies biscuits. (I’ve already eaten a few, yum!)

The yarn is Opal Prisma in 1192, a medium green. A very nice complement to the greens sprouting around here.

Thank you OzKnitter! : )

    Packages are always good, but unexpected packages from Australia are even better!

    Hey, maybe I’ll run into you tomorrow–going to Sheep and Wool?

    Oh! TimTams! Those are absolutely sinful. I really love that skein of Opal. Beautiful colourway.

    Have they told you about the Tim Tam Slam? :)

    What you need to do is get a cup of coffee (or tea), take one Tim Tam, bit a corner off each end (opposing corners) then stick one end in the cuppa and suck, like it’s a straw.

    Try it – you’ll love it :)

    Oooh! You are so lucky. I have so wanted to try those Tim Tams…I need to find a swap where I can get paired up with an Australian knitter….. Great sock yarn. Can’t wait to see what “sprouts” up on the needles from it.

    I want to try those yummy cookies/biscuits too.

    I’ve heard of Tim Tams, but never gotten to try them, what’s the verdict?
