Two package Day

I was stalking the mailperson... I saw them drive down the other side of the street, that means in 10 mins give or take a couple, he will be deliverying to my side of the street. I was expecting a swap package, didn't now which one, Jane Doe emailed me so, knew it would be this week. And I had some new stuff coming in from Jen at Woolgirl for a baby girl present, got this but in the pink, some Shrek for Joey. Don't know if I will do socks or may be a hat scarf, something that will last a while. Socks I worry he may outgrow them, even though I can lengthen them..... Will have to see what patterns grabs me I guess... And then there was this for me, Lime slushy from Zen Garden. Much better in person. The front door was open, I was standing in the kitchen, watching, listening(mail trucks have a distinct sound), waiting. He pulled up and put stuff in the box and I waited, he hadn't pulled away yet... Then he backed up...huh... ahhh cant get out of the truck parked next to the mailbox. I intercepted him before he was even on the porch. Mine!

But the best was the package from my SITM swapper. Thank You so much Kietha, the Baudelaire socks are gorgeous, this was on my some day list, when I was ready for cables. They are made in this wonderful red colorway, dyed by Keitha herself. I dont want to put any shoes on they are so pretty. I almost cryed when I saw them, I love them so much!! Ok here are the pics....


Also in the package were... A KnitPickers Travel Bag with little wrapped goodies. Wonderful smelling red clover hand and Cuticle salve from JR Watkins(I love apothacaries), gorgeous stitch markers and a big bag of Halloween Peanut M&M's(hidden from hubbie and children) and a skein of tofutsies that will make a wonderful pair of Fall socks.

And loaded with a project already...
Thank you so much for a wonderful swap Keitha!!! You are the greatest!!!!
