Oh My God!!!

Ok, first there were the chocolates and the cute little hat and socks for Scott. Than the ducks and the lovely roving and yarns. But dear secret pal, or as she has told me that she is called Val, you have so outdone yourself. This last week has been a little bleah because dumb me forgot to pack yarn and all my roving had been mailed to me. Well roving arived today, and than your package. Let me say again, oh my god!!!!!!! Here's the rundown of what Val ssent to me, and you can decide if she's the bestest in the world.

  • An utterly adorable sweater for Scott
  • A matching teddy bear for Scott, both can be seen on her blog here
  • A big skein of mid-weight wool in bright blues and mauves
  • another skein of wool, this time yellow and green and brown sock weight
  • 2 skeins of Jaggerspun in their cassis (a dusky rose) to use with the following item
  • The Peacock Feathers Shawl pattern from FiddleSticks Knitting
  • A pair of Addi Turbos to knit the shawl (dream item)

If this wasn't enough, and for me it was so much more than I could have hoped for when I signed up for SP8, there was also a $25 gift certificate for White Lies Designs, the website I have drooled over for about 3 years now. I kid you not, I started to cry when I saw the envelope there in the package. All this generosity from a total stranger. Val, I can only hope that your partner was as generous to you as you were to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
