Nah Nah Nah Nah!

MY SECRET PAL IS THE BEST!!!!
Check out the package that was waiting for me at home tonight! This is the combination of two packages (the 1st one was lost, then returned...and now here!)
Shall we check out the haul?

This is all of it packed onto my regular sized stove... yes, there is THAT much!

1. the tea--- oh so yummy--- there is a cup of it in my hands now! And Burt's Bees (my fave!) hand cream...perfect for my knitting bag! A calender for knitting patterns, two tape measures, body wash in "cotton" scent and body splash in the same!

A GREAT bumper sticker/magnet for my car! And the newest copy of KnitSimple from Vogue! (Already found two patterns that I NEED to make!)

YARN! 1 skein of Cascade "heathers" in lovely purple... Berroco "Gem" in some cool purple/ blue/pink colorway and some "fluffy" FIZZ in the same colors! Also, some size US15 needles (wooden... with their own little baggie to hold them!) to make a scarf!

She sent along "chocolate peaches" (already tasted, err..I mean tested!) and some Valentine's candy! Also, some knitting accoutrements that I love! A "snag grabber" and some new stitch markers! Oh, and there is a great candle in a cute little votive holder!

Did I miss anything? I hope not! There was so much in the package that it took me about 20 minutes to open it all! YAY!

Secret Pal- you hit all the nails on the head! I can't wait to make a scarf and a hat! Oh... and everything was JUST PERFECT! Everyone said "fabulous" to my secret pal! (who has also been a really great "supporter" during my dad's illness..

Actually, you all have been so great! He started chemo today and I expect him home any minute... Rascal is curled up licking one of dad's socks... he misses him alot!

    Hurray! It did not get lost!
    Glad you liked everything. I was going for "Eeyore" tones.
    Hope your dad does well this week!

    Your secret pal is a good one!! She has got you well spoiled and knows just what you'll love. How is your Dad? We'd like an update.
    Tell me, what planet is the new admin from? Doesn't she know that knitting is the new yoga? She's lucky you didn't stab her with your dpns. Obviously she belongs in a box.
