When my doorbell rang tonight I knew who it was, I only hoped he had in his hands what I have been waiting for all week. At the door of course was my landlord. He receives my mail and delivers it to me everynight. It's kinda like having a doorman but I don't have to tip him during the holidays.
What did I hope he had in his hands? Well I am patiently awaiting for my yarn purchase from Knit Picks! I can't wait to start my Central Park Hoodie. Anyway, as I looked out through the door I realized he didn't have a package big enough to be my yarn (I purchased 12 skeins for the sweater and 3 skeins of sock yarn) and I thought maybe the Jiffylite envelope contained a purchase I made for my Secret Pal that I am spoiling in SP11. I received my mail from my landlord and plopped on my couch, where I had been knitting by the way, and took a closer look at the envelope. I quickly realized that this was not the package I had been waiting for, but it was a package from my Secret Pal who is spoiling me. I was so excited I couldn't wait to open it. This was such a suprise!!!
After I carefully opened the envelope I quickly caught a whiff of lavender! Mmmmmm. As you can see from the first picture everything was beautifully wrapped in lavendar tissue. It was a lavender themed package. The card is so adorable. It's of a girl knitting mittens. How appropriate! I was first going to read the card but quickly I realized my pal listed out what was in the wrapped packages. I immediately stopped reading and began to unravel what was inside of this lavender tissue.
From the picture below you can see how fantastic this package is! I love everything. I can't wait to try the Lavender Dryer Bags. It's going to make everything smell so heavenly. The lavender soap was made by a soapmaker near where my pals lives. The Cascade Pima Melange yarn is lavendar in color (I have never seen this yarn and will have to think of something special to knit with it). It's so soft too!! Lastly, my pal included some Peppermint (my favorite) and Tazo Honeybush teas. Yum!
I have to say that my secret pal definitely put a huge smile on my face tonight! Thank you soooooo much Brytomart!
