Proverbs 15:1

My Spin Club package arrived today, shipped out from Eat.Sleep.Knit. Wrath is the second "Deadly S(p)in." You might think that was ironic, given my response to the first shipment. Except there's a "spin" in more than one sense of the word. Rather than send a package red with rage, they've "spun" around to the opposite of wrath. The theme for this shipment is peace. Perhaps we should all pause here and hum "Sheep May Safely Graze." I guarantee, you won't be able to help yourself. Look at all this wonderful sheep-ly stuff.

The patterns for this month are a soap bag and a sheep washcloth. The yarn is enough Unique Sheep Pima Petite yarn in the "Peaceful" colorway to make both. Treats, you wonder? Yes, there are treats. Hand-milled soap to put in the bag, bath crystals, bath soak, teas, unscented Soak Wash, a sheep stitch-marker by sunneshine, a beeswax candle and a chocolate lamb from Cranberry Sweets & More.

I know I was, *ahem*, disappointed in the first shipment. I had contemplated pulling out of the club. This shipment has certainly smothered any smoldering ire.

"A soft answer turneth away wrath."

That one is a nice surprise. I have a crochet pattern for a kitty that holds soap.
