Thanks SP!

I was so surprised to get home last night and find another package from my SP.

Well, to be honest, I was surprised that the mailman was able to fit a 8 inch wide package into something that had an opening of 6 inches. I pulled, and prodded and tore, and it was still not coming out of my mailbox.

Tony was getting impatient because we had to go to his parents for dinner, and he suggested that I leave the mailman a note asking him to leave it on our door step. Ummm... ya, no! I was not about to wait another day for a package from my SP!

Thankfully, I had my knitting bag, and therefore I had my scissors nearby, and I managed to actually open the package inside the mailbox. (The lengths I will go to for a nice gift!) A neighbor was actually waiting behind me to get her mail as I was doing this. And I just smiled politely and told her "one minute!!". Thankfully she understood... maybe she knits too?

Regardless, here are the goodies in this package:

That is some super yummie mohair/merino blend that I have no idea what i will do with, but it will certainly not be gifted to anyone cause it is gor-ge-ous. It is from my SP's stash and now I cannot wait to find out who she is so I can blog stalk her and figure out what she did with this yarn. I love it!

What do you guys think I should do with it? Any pattern ideas for me ladies (and gents). Not that I lack projects - trust me... I don't, but when you see such pretty yarn, you have to use it!

Also included in the pretty package:

Napkins, which are too cute to wipe your dirty mouth with - what should i do with them?; a cute notebook which I plan on keeping next to my knitstand for those "oh-gotta-do-that-tomorrow!" moments; sheep clips! SO SO SO adorable. I brought them to work but they are going back home cause the are too ctoo cute to get lost in this paper pile; a "do this" notepad to write notes to tony (hee hee!); and a hellokitty pen, and i looooooovvee me some hellokitty. This is now my pen in my knitting bag pen.

Thanks again SP, you rock!

What an awesome secret pal!!

I looooooove the yarn. It looks tres tasty. The notebook is really cool too.

I cannot believe you cut open your package while it was stuck in your mailbox!!! That is too funny. If I was that I would have been cracking up. Poor Tony. :P

you're welcome! fyi - i used the yarn as a carry-along with some chunky weight silk yarn i bought at stitches west. it's my absolute fav scarf now, because it's sooo soft with a great halo and subtle variegated colors from the kid merino. i'm looking forward to cooler weather, just so i can wear my scarves!
