Oh MY!

I got to the Post Office tonight to check my box and there was a little yellow slip inside saying something "too large for the box" was waiting for me...Could NOT believe that I had only one person in line ahead of me, and the box that was brought to me...well, it was HUGE! Inside? This lovely gift basket from Laura (whom I think is still blogless, but if not, let me know, okay, Laura?)
This is too amazing...from our Knitters' Coffee Swap a stunning (and very large) beautiful basket full of Starbucks and Millstone coffees (my favorite Hazelnut Cream is there), a PURPLE (yup, my favorite color) Starbucks WISH coffee mug, a gorgeous box of Dilettante Dark Chocolates and their Semi-sweet chocolate with amaretto Truffle Topping, and...ta da..Adrienne Vittadini Nadia Alpaca/Wool yarn (3 skeins!) in COCOA!!! I'm just so spoiled! Laura, I hope you are at least as pleased with the package I sent you as I am with what you sent me! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Yesterday, we celebrated our annual Christmas Party with our clients (at work). The party is always held at the same church. They have a fundraiser of items handcrafted from around the world. I was looking at a little Christmas tree decorated with delightful ornaments and discovered these two little guys. They are handknitted on the teensiest needles...How on earth could I resist? In an age when I've learned that I'm not allergic to wool. In fact, can even wear superwash wool socks? *gasp!*

Now I know that normally I collect cat things. I would never have told you that sheep/lambkins were going to be on my list of things to collect. But I could NOT resist these guys. (I think, quite frankly, that I'm probably the the alter ego of the little black sheep - lolol!)

You know, I think we're all the alter egos of black sheep...

Those little sheep are the cutest things. I wouldn't have been able to resist either.

Love your exchange basket. Every one I see is so thoughtfully done.

You know I always thought I was allergic to wool also. Then I found out about the different qualities of wool and learning I was just allergic to cheap crap wool. LOL.
