Longing for Spring Time Swap Package

I got my package from my Longing for Spring Swap Partner, Andrea. It was more than I could have even asked for! I loved every bit of what was inside...

Here is a shot of everything:

These are the non-knitting goodies: bath soak, lip gloss, a little spring notebook, some gerber daisy candles, mini chocolate eggs (yes the bag is empty, I put them in a ziplock bag), some swedish berry gummies (also in a plastic baggie) and finally, the coolest market tote/knitting bag. It opens up to this super cool bag! She saw I was making a tote for my new housemates because they are very environmentally sound and she sent me one! I will keep in my car for grocery trips. I love the idea of not using plastic bags any longer!

OH MY! Next in the package was the BEST shrug pattern by Dream in Color and 2 skeins of Dream in Color, Classy, in a FANTSTIC colorway! Wendy has already claimed the pattern after I make it, and she let me know that Chan has already made it.. so I took at look at Chan's, and it's SOOO awesome! Can't wait to get started!

Look at the yarny goodness!! It's an AMAZING colorway!!!

Finally, Andrea sent me some awesome sock yarn and her very own sock pattern! I can't wait to get started!!!

I had my camera ready for this cool yarn... I finally think I have the hang of taking good yarn shots! No flash, sunlight, and steady hands! I pretty much stink at the last one, but I take lots and choose from those!

I almost forgot, Andrea also included some of her favorite podcasts! I had the CD by the computer ready to be inserted, that's why it isn't pictured...
Next up for me... finishing the first Monkey sock for my SIL!!!

I love that shrug, and can't wait to see it in that colorway! Andrea's own yarn is beautiful too.
