Revealed from the prettily wrapped packages are two pieces of chocolate, one a solid lamb and one crispy rice, like a big chunk of Nestle's. Yummy! Two coffee singles you brew in the microwave in your coffee cup. Two scented candles that you can smell from far away. I believe the scent is white tea and it is heavenly! I don't want to burn them so I am going to keep them in my stash so the yarn will smells pretty. I did that before with some scented wax, and while I knitted I had a nice aroma going. A cute little card with a hand written note accompanied the package. That I brought to work and hung at my desk because it was pretty. But the best goodie of all was....
A skein of malabrigo chunky! YEA! Now you may find this hard to believe, but I have never knit with malabrigo, so I am definitely looking forward to using this yarn. I am going to make myself a nice warm hat for those days that are just brutally cold.
Thanks again Cinnamongirl93! Please check out her blog when you get a chance. She has very busy hands!
In other news, I cast on for my sweater. So far, so good. Didn't get very far, but I am working it, you know? Had trouble finding a good book to read. The past few have been duds in my opinion, so I went to the library yesterday and checked a couple of books out. I just started Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler and I have trouble putting it down. Basically a modern day girl goes through a break up, spends a night drinking Absolute and reading Pride & Prejudice. Then wakes up the next morning in 19th century England, a la Jane Austen's time. That's all I 'll say because I don't want to spoil it, but if I don't get a lot of knitting done this book is the reason why : )
