An Update... filled with new yarn!

I haven't updated in forever for a few reasons:
  1. I've had exams in every class in the past two weeks. Plus, advising appointments involving my upcoming graduation (May 2008)....
  2. I moved. I've been busy cleaning and packing and unpacking and... moving is a pain in the arse.
  3. When we moved we didn't have cable. No tv, no internet for over a week. It was crazy!
Anyway I got my swap package about a week and a half ago, and I've now found my camera, and uploaded the photos. I just want to thank Cynthia so much. I love it. It was such an awesome package. I was so excited to open it and I loved EVERYTHING!

I've already eaten my chocolate bar... :/ It was delicious. Thank you so much. I absolutely loved everything. I got 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden. Chocolates, Sumatra coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans, a book of hat patterns, a pattern for a hat made of noro, a little notepad, and a really cute little knitting pin, which I don't have a picture of because I pinned it to my jacket already.

Also in the mail (and the first thing to be delivered to my new house, no less) I got the third installment of my potter covers sock yarn. I really LOVE LOVE the pattern for this one, but that's probably just because I love Sirius so much. The yarn is incredibly soft. It's a bamboo blend, which I'm excited to get knitting with. I've never tried out any of the bamboo yarns before. I'm especially excited to get started on these socks! I really look forward to getting these in the mail each month. It'll be sad when it's over. There's only 7 books, and only 7 packages... that means only 4 left. I'm excited to see what comes in the next 4 months!

Lucy, I'm looking at your blog and I'm wondering if you got the little silver necklace? Maybe it fell out> maybe I forgot to send it? It had a cute little coffee pot and cup on it. Just checking because I know how I am. I'm glad you enjoyed everything - Noro yarn is for a UNLV hat.
