Hell-ooo Kitty!


Oh. My. G-d. I came home to the most fabulous mail day - I can barely describe it. I got two packages...one, a gorgeous skein SP9 exclusive yarn which I will save to talk about another day as it was totally trumped by...the second, my prize for winning the Funky Socks category. I'm telling you, this turned a rainy day right around for me. Thank you to Aloha & Oreos...because quite simply - you ROCK!! I received some serious swag! The most gorgeous Halloweeny (that makes it sound dirty *grin*) sock yarn - an awesome colorway called Candy Corn by sKNITches. Wow, it could have stopped there...but NO - a wonderful little fabric bag full of things I would totally wish for but no one would think to buy for me - Hello Kitty was the theme - a childhood warm fuzzy - a Pez dispenser (to put by the one I already have bought myself - I thought I was the only grown-up who coveted such things... I mean, has Miss Aloha and Oreos been peeking in my house? I think I love her!), a nail file, 3 packages of post-its (I have never seen Hello Kitty on post-it flags before and I shop at Target people!), Halloween stitch markers, cuticle oil with real flowers in it, a cute sticker, candy and a kind note. I was completely blown away and giddy by the generosity and thoughtfulness. Three Cheers for Aloha and Oreos! Thank you so much from the bottom of my Hello Kitty lovin' heart!

yay! i'm glad you liked everything! i'm a closet PEZ lover myself and a total post-it whore. post-its are the new bookmarker! i also think every knitter should take care of their hands. i, for one, am perpetually looking at mine as i knit.
those hello kitty paraphanelia are unique to hawaii, i hear. :) well, the post-its and nail file, anyway...and how cool is that colorway? candy corn! i love it. i *heart* self-striping yarn in fun colors :) :) :) anyway, thanks again for playing!
