Look! Look what was waiting for me when I came home from work! A package filled with goodies from my SP, Spazzy Pickles. It really made me feel special. Why?
Yarn Harlot! Need I say more? Knitting Rules cracked me up, and I can't wait to get started on this one. My paper for my intellectual freedom class is due, I've been running from consulate to city hall to immigration office to get my passport and other documents renewed, and I've been job hunting. I really need a good, knitting-related read right now, the timing couldn't be more perfect.
Then there's the chocolate. Not only does it look yummy, but if you look more closely, you'll see that it says "Dagoba" on it. Only the best SP ever would go to some gourd-forsaken swamp planet at the end of the galaxy to get me chocolate. Must have snuck it past Yoda, too!
The highlight, though, is unquestionably the sock yarn. Blues, pinks/fuchsias, some purplish tones... soft and pretty. But the extra-special thing is that it's hand-dyed by Spazzy Pickles! HAND DYED, just for ME! I've been petting the skein. I've been carrying it around the house. Even the husband is impressed, and he usually doesn't show much interest in yarn.
Last but not least, there's the cute card with a kitty on it, an allergy-free kitty-in-a-box from my SP. I really feel happy and spoiled.
Now, I have to go back to petting and ogling that skein...
