Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  Thank you, SP!!
Despite being green with envy reading everyone's Rhinebeck posts, I'm one very happy knitter. Why, you ask? Because my secret pal rocks. Friday I came home to a card in my mailbox saying I had a package to pick up at the post office, and today my afternoon class was cancelled, so I had a chance to pick it up!

Check out all these amazing goodies!

Lots of candy (Kellen has a giant sweet tooth, too, so we'll see how long this sticks around), cute notecards, heart shaped post-its, a halloween notepad, a calendar/mousepad (my birthday month has a teapot on it!), some Tazo Awake tea (I'm wondering if she took at peek at the Tea group over on Ravelry, where I mentioned that this tea is my favorite for staying up with homework. I have a term paper coming up, so it's come in handy soon!), an adorable sheepy tape measure, a beautiful autumn leaves travel candle, a fresh scented shachet, and...

Yarn! 5 skeins of yummy Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, 3 in Claret heather, and 2 in black cherry heather. I'm not sure what I'll make with these yet, but it'll definitely be for me, and I can't wait. She also got me a skein of tofutsies, which I've been dying to try, also in a gorgeous burgundy colorway.

Thank you so much, SP! This past week has been pretty stressful (school and work, as usual...everything else is wonderful!) and the package was a really nice pick-me-up. I'm off to pet my yarn now!


i'm so jealous! dibs on a ring pop!
Yay! I'm glad you liked it - I was hoping you'd like the yarns and such, and the candy was just fun because it reminded me of being a kid! I love the punkin patch photos - I used to go to something similar when I was a kid - brought back memories!
