A Secret Pal Spoils the Cpurl!

Today was my first day on the job--let me tell you, after waking up when you feel like it for many months, hearing the alarm clock go off and having to drive in commute traffic was quite the shocker but that's neither here nor there because when I got home I saw a big package on the front door step!

I grabbed it, ran inside, fed the hungry gangsta kitties, and opened it to find several gifts neatly wrapped in lavender and purple tissue paper and tied with bits of yarn:

And I unwrapped them all to find this gift extravaganza!

This parcel was themed at the 'tea time box' because it came with everything I need for a wonderful relaxing evening: Some delicious scented Earl Grey tea (my fav), some chocolate orange ginger biscuits, a huge bar of chocolate, TWO British Knitting magazines and two lovely balls of yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Night and Rowan 4-ply cotton (perfect for a California summer). Oh! And my SP had threatened to send me the feared-by-many US Knittyheads, marmite but, instead, sent a charming fridge Marmite magnet. Whew!

I got the Simply Knitting mag that came with the free needles, whee! And my SP says that one of the skeins of yarn goes with one of the patterns so I'll have fun looking through it tonight!

Close up of the Rowan kidsilk. It has sparkly bits scattered throughout:

And I tried to get a close up of the Marmite magnet. It's sooo cute!

Well, time to put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea and some magazine reading. SP, if you see this, thank you soooo much! This was such a wonderful ending to a long day!

That arrived sooner than I expected, but what an end to a long day. I'm glad you like it. Both balls of yarn are for the same project, though you could easily just use the cotton and keep the Kidsilk if you wanted. It's actually a good one skein project that way.

Now to find stuff for the July box...
