SP7 rocks my world!
It was heavy, cylinder-shaped and wrapped in bubble wrap. I had no clue as to what it might be. I'm a little daft sometimes, because once I unwrapped it, it all made perfect sense!
A humongous Yankee Candle in my favorite scent! Yay! There were a few (just a few) other goodies in the box as well.
Meg Swansen's A Gathering Of Lace, the Sweet Mary Jane cardigan pattern from Knit Picks (hmm, more lace) and four hanks of Shimmer to knit it with. And, just to make sure I don't make it a full day without cheating on my diet, a little bag of chocolate. Notice that they didn't make the pictures?
Thanks, SP! You rock! I am very tempted to wind up that Shimmer and start on Sweet Mary Jane, but I'm dedicating my life to socks for the month of March. I have my Vineyard Stripes socks (which is now the knitting that I keep in the car at all times, so I never have to sit and do nothing when I send Bill in for coffee or wait for Sydney's preschool class to let out). I'm also going to start New England from Knitting On The Road, and I have a couple of secret projects of the socky variety as well. Oh, yeah, and my Sockapaloooza socks, although they might not get started in March since they're not due until May...
