Just got back from vacation to find two wonderful packages waiting for me! (I made Tony go get the mail from our friend before he unpacked -hee hee!)

The first one was from my Secret Pal. Note to Secret Pal: I lost your email - I am sorry! I have been looking all over for it to send you a thank you email, but cannot find it. So here it is: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I love it all! The little knit image is from the card she included with the package.

The package included yumie vamilla Napa Soap (vanilla is my favorite sent); a really cute card - did you make it SP?; four skeins of Karaoke SOY yarn (can you believe that???) and a really cute pattern for the yarn. You can felt with this yarn, but i am liking he scarf pattern - it seems like a pretty accessory, and a quick knit - which is always welcomed!

The second package came from ms. KnitPastis. She had liked the yarn I used for my mom's shawl, and we decided to do another swap. She received the yarn, and really liked it, and I am sure she will make something gorgeous with it. She sent me this GORGEOUS handmade knitting bag and zipper pouch she made just for me! Tony was even impressed, and he is not one to comment too much on these things. He still asks me what I am "sewing", even though I have told him plenty of times that I am KNITTING.

She also sent me beautiful laura ashley notecards and magnets. The magnets are going to work with me, where they will be put to good use. One day we will have a bigger house and I will have my own little office, which will be very girlie. For now, no pretty magnets in the office, because then we will start having soccer and body building magnets as well. Thanks KnitPastis! It is so much fun exchanging with you.

I have so many knitting news, I need to post pics of Salina, and other FO's, but since we just came back from a week at the beach, and we have absolutely no food, it's off to Costco for me.
