Knitters Treat Exchange Received!
OH MY! I pulled in the drive today and there it was! A rather large box, all the way from the UK! All the way from Kat in the UK! Hidden in all of the white pop-corn peanuts was a yarn that I have been itching to try for quite some time now, but had never come across in the LYS's, recycled sari silk yarn. And wow is it georgeous! Kat also included some absolutely fabulous wool that she dyed herself using kool-aid into some lovely peach and pink tones. I am going to have to think up a fun project that I can use both of these in. My poor over worked feet are definitely thanking Kat profusely for the pampering products. I have had so much fun flipping through the 'Simply Knitting' magazine and the little pattern book. Perhaps I should pick a pattern out of the felting patterns for the kool-aid wool.. Hmm, but what to choose? What to choose! There were also two (now one:) very fresh scented candles that Kat made herself! I have been burning one this evening in hopes of falling asleep on time as it is such a fabulously relaxing scent! Tomorrow I will be using the bath gel and having a long hot soak with the second candle. To top it all of she had 4 little baggies of beads scattered through out the packing peanuts. Talk about a fun FUN box! Thank you so very much for all the goodies Kat! I love them!!!
