Oh, Sock-ret Pal! How you spoil me!!
Today I got the first package from my Sock-ret Pal! I had an idea that something was on it’s way to me, since my pal had emailed me hinting that something might be headed my way, but I’m forgetful, so today I was surprised that there was a package in my mailbox today from my Sock-ret Pal!
Check it out:
Here’s the notebook, candles (vanilla and cinnamon, which made the whole package smell yummy!), candle holder, card, Burt’s Bee’s hand cream, chocolate (that may not be See’s, but was still delicious!! – yeah… I already ate it….), “Emergency Yarn” and a little pumpkin that was sent:
I also got a really cool polka-dot bag which will now become my “take to work bag” which holds whatever portable project I’m working on and whatever book I’m reading:
Not only did I get one bag – I got two!!! This one folds up all small:
Then opens to reveal a BIG bag that has WHEELS on it! How cool is that?!
I showed it to Nick and told him that this will be the bag I take with us on our trip to Florida in December for all the yarn that I’m going to buy on the trip! He laughed for a second, then told me I’m crazy and I told him I’m not joking! Last week I told him that I’d plan our route and make sure we stop at every yarn shop along the way. He laughed at that, but I wasn’t joking then, either!! :oP
Okay…. maybe I am…. a little… hehehe
Back to what my pal sent! I got a beautiful skien of sock yarn: Trekking XXL, which I’ve never used and has colors that remind me of the fall we’re having here in Connecticut.
Sock-ret Pal, you rock! I love everything :o)
On a side note, since I keep forgetting to mention it, I traded the “repeat books” I got for my birthday for Knitting on the Road and Folk Socks, both by Nancy Bush. Both books are great and I’ve already got a mental list of all the sock I want to make ;o)
