"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

the bestest SP!!

I know many of you may want to argue with me, but I have irrefutable proof that my secret pal is the BEST secret pal of the round!!

Susan has been my secret pal this round, and she managed to spoil me rotten while MOVING! How she managed is beyond me... but she did a beautiful job. She thinks she didn't do enough, and I'm thinking that she already went WAY overboard. So, thanks Susan for being such a great SP!

Here's the latest presents...

We have the HUGE box before I ripped into it with those scissors, and then the CUTEST packaging EVER! It's two hat boxes, one slightly smaller than the other, with cats frolicking on them! oh... you want to see what's inside?

in the first box on the left, we have one skein of laceweight KnitPicks paint your own yarn! 100% merino wool, 100g, at 880 yard! HOW in the world did she know that the next scarf style scarf after Fair Isle Jazz would be Ene's scarf, with which I've been perusing the online yarn stores for laceweight yarn? HOW? AND, a skein of fingering weight, color your own... for SOCKS! Plus, she included two candles, in my very favoritest smells... vanilla and LILAC. MMMM. I can decide if i want my apt to smell like spring (lilac) or home baking.

As if that weren't enough... in box two on the right, we have TWO more skeins of Knit Picks, Wool of the Andes, worsted weight, 100% merino wool, 220 yds each. Cleverly, she included a dye kit from Spinner's choice, with six color dyes inside, each will dye a whole pound of yarn! SIX lbs of fiber!! AND (I know! will it never stop? how much can she pack in there?) she sent some roving...which will be fun to dye, then spin!! I know that if I saw this package on someone else's blog, I would be pea green with envy!! So a big THANK YOU to Susan for being so thoughtful and generous!! WAY too generous (but i'm not giving ANYTHING back).

Now, the funniest thing is that the person I'm spoiling? Her name is Susan too! I just sent off the last package to her today, and I'm excited to hear what she thinks. *of course, it's not the same Susan*

last... my promised pic of spork.

I would say great package (heheh), but probably not. You do have a great SP though. She really spoiled you, that's great!

Susan is my name, spoiling is my game!! He he, I had so much fun with this!! I love to spoil more than getting, and I'm as bad a yarn shopper as you.... I've been banned from yarn shops from my husband :( Thanks for being a great person to spoil and I'm glad you had so much fun!
