Thank you so much, Chelle!

When I checked my mailbox yesterday, there was a little white card in there ... a little white card that led to a a medium-sized box coming home with me. My Secret Pal 12 pal revealed herself with a wonderful final gift! Thanks so much Chelle!

My parcel made me "Oh My God!", grin, giggle and wait impatiently so I could share my excitedness with my hubby (he was pretty excited over what I got too!)

Well, Chelle outdid herself ... spoiled me totally rotten!
Tah dah!

The whole she-bang! Do you see all the cool stuff?

I know, with it all together in a picture like that, it is hard to take it all in ...

So here is a breakdown of some of it. Lucy Neatby's Cool Socks Warm Feet book (which I have been wanting for a long time! I am going to Lucy's Sock workshop on Halloween, maybe she'll sign it for me? I read through it last night, and anticipate it will be my bedtime reading until the class). I also got Elann Pure Alpaca, 2 skeins in a gorgeous purple and 2 in a dramatic black, and some Jelly Bellys in tropical flavors (love them! They will soon just be a happy memory!

I also got a Funky Sock Monkey kit from Blue Moon Fibre Arts - LOVE IT!! LOVE the colours, and can't wait to cast on!! The kit will make one big monkey and one little monkey, then you can accessorize them on your own if you wish (one of mine is definitely going to have a wardrobe! I can feel it!). She also tucked in a defuzzer/depiller - I have been cutting up clothes for years with the electronic ones with spinning razors, and have never seen the type Chelle sent ... it looks like something that won't slice through my clothes!)(it is pictured in the group shot).

I don't know how well you can see them, but there is also a set of Rolling Stones Stitch Markers (black lips and wicked pointed red tongue -- I can't even start to tell you how excited I was over them ... I love them so much!)

So much cool stuff ... now I am itching to start something new! Thank you so much Chelle for all the inspiring gifts, and for being such a good spoiler to me this round of Secret Pal! I really enjoyed it.

Cool package!

We need a Bruce update, y'know. It would also be nice to see Elvis, Duffy, Curly, and Louie! Hint, hint. :)

I'm so glad you liked everything! I can't wait to see those monkeys all knit up. I purchased the pattern for myself and now I need to find a good no-sheep yarn alt. for mine! It has been a real pleasure to spoil you. Happy Knitting!
