NSFY Secret swap

Look what I got yesterday in the mail. My NSFY Pal Katie sent me lots of goodies. She went way beyond what was required of her. All we really had to send was a single skein of yarn. One for June and one for July but both times she just spoiled me and sent more. I think she was just the best pal ever(By no means am I snubbing or overlooking my other spoilers. I have had some AWESOME pals, and have received wonderful swap boxes). We chatted quite alot through email and I really enjoyed getting to know her.And we have so much in common that it’s just scary. I hope we stay in touch for a long time to come.

I love the yarns which are 100% Bamboo from South West Trading Company and Rowan Denim that is 100% cotton. I love the feel of these yarns and can not waitr to start knitting with them. 

My favorite item though was the Blue Floral mug. I absolutley love this mug.I am such a tea junkie and can never get enough tea or mugs.  And of course she sent me some yummy tea also , Vanilla Caramel Truffle by Lipton and honey sticks from Trader Joes. I love honey in my tea. She also sent Russell Stover’s new international chocolates. Oh so yummy! My two favorite’s Tea and chocolate oh it’s Heavenly.

I don’t want to forget the size 5 DPNs and a couple of patterns and note cards with a fall type theme which just happens to be my favotie season.

Thanks Katie for everything. You are awesome and I love it all!

    Hi Jen!! You are so welcome!! I’m glad you liked everything. I tried to include some of my favorite non wool yarns. Although I will admit I LOVE wool the best!! I was very tempted to send you wool. And I agree, we do have TONS in common! I hope we stay in touch and friends for a long time too. I enjoyed getting to know you and look forward to see what you make with the yarns.

    Funny, when I saw the mug in the shop, I instantly thought of you! I knew you’d like it!
