Thank you Thank you Thank you

Blow me down. I got the nicest package today - well, plural actually. Christine, known as CBknits and I had a little swap of our own - I was her "person" for the Knit Mitt Kit Swap, and we have kept in touch. She offered up a skein of June Carter Cider Moon in trade for something from my stash - I jumped on that and now, gosh, I hope she is 1/3 as happy with her package as I am with mine from her - she spoiled the pants off of me.

Cider Moon - it is gorgeous beyond words and after a little hunting around, I think it might ultimately make some great Campfire Socks. Or perhaps another Calorimetry?

Some All Things Heather freaking gorgeous supersock merino. She included this wrapped in birthday paper - which at first stumped me...I mean, my birthday is coming up. She's good - she knew that! Bravo Christine! What a wondeful, thoughtful surprise.

And wait, this may very well be the crowning piece...
Can you see that pretty spindle in there? I am having way too much fun with my camera - and the perfect occasion. She got me a louet drop spindle kit at a Sheep and Wool Festival near her home on the East Coast. I can't tell you how many spindles I have had in my cart over at Helloyarn, only to chicken out. She also included some other special little goodies, loose leaf tea, some nice opaque nail polish and funky buffer - just in time for sandal season. This surprise box positively rocks! Now CB, I think you need to get blogging so everyone can appreicate your knitting awesomeness! :) Thank you for making me feel a little like a pampered celebrity today!

Glad you liked everything! Can't wait to see how the All things Heather yarn knits up, and how you do with that spindle. Just remember it's called a drop spindle for a reason :)

Okay, your photography is soooo good! I am clearly jealous, in a good way, and I know think I have to get one of those cameras. I may be in touch about that. I love your gifts.
