Hot Cocoa Swap Package Received

I just wanted to let everyone know that I received my swap package on Saturday. My YSP, Sarah from Nebraska spoiled me rotten. I just love everything!

Here is a photo of all the wonderful stuff.

I got 2 skeins of Reggio Bamboo yarn. The color is so bright and cheerful. I can't wait to try it out. I also received a skein of Cherry Tree Hill Sock yarn, and you know, I have yet to make myself a pair of blue socks, so I think I really must do those next. And to confuse matters, she sent this great book about knitting 2 socks on circular needles. There are some really neat looking socks in there. And now I just can't figure out if I want to do the 2 circle needle method or the magic loop method first. I must decide soon, since I finished the 'neverending socks' on Friday, because I want to start another pair as soon as possible. Sarah's friend at her local coffee shop recommended the Mexcafe Mexican Hot Chocolate. OH MY! It is delicious! I made it with milk and added marshmallows. Major YUM! I need to find it locally for when I run out. You will me amazed to know that I still have not eaten the Dove Chocolate bar yet. I know as soon as I open it, I will devour the whole thing, so I am waiting a bit. I wanted to savor it for awhile.

And lest I forget, here is Moe, sitting in my coffee mug on a desk at work. I say "a" desk, as mine was way to messy for a good photo. Moe is adorable and so cuddly. Sarah said she started calling her Moe, because that is what she just looks like. I agree, so I am going to continue to call her that. I have to admit that I am glad Sarah let me know she's a monkey, because for some odd reason at first glance I thought she was a horse, until I saw the long tail. Don't know where that idea came from!?!? Sarah said her daughter liked Moe so much she has to make her one now.


Sarah also included 4 lovely stitch markers. I have been trying to take a close up photo of them, so you can see the details, but either the flash goes off and it is to white, or it is too dark, when I turn the flash off. I will work on getting a photo up of those.

Thanks again Sarah for the great package!

I am almost finished with my own Secret Pals package. I have a few tweeks to do, but it will be on it's way out the door by the end of the week.
