Thank You Martha!

I had the most wonderful package waiting for me when I got home last night. It was from Martha and it was for the Scavenger Hunt Swap. Look at these pictures:











For those of you that have never participated in a swap, you might not totally understand the fun of this. We were given seven categories and we had to send a package of goodies that had at least four knitting/fiber related matches.

Martha did her homework trolling around my blog and my Ravelry site. She sent me yummy chocolate that is made locally in her very home town. She sent me the best stitch markers, trying so very hard to get me something ruby colored. The green fish wind chime is one of my favorites of the whole box. And the card is just too cute for words. The bath fizzies and the coffee could possible end up getting shared with Wifey, but the yarny goodness is all mine. The Socks That Rock is the most amazing blue you have ever seen. The most special part of the whole package was the Spoiler's Choice. Martha sent me Debbie Bliss Cathay (five skeins) to make the Clementine Shawlett that is in my queue in Ravelry for the Munchkin's graduation.

Martha is a class act and I look forward to reading her blog and her Ravelry site more to get to know her better. Thank you again Martha for starting my week off so wonderfully!

That is a great package! And let me just say, if you haven't tried the Socks that Rock yarn yet, you are in for such an incredible treat. I'm getting more excited by the minute for my own package to arrive!

Wow! What a wonderful package. I'm so glad you were appropriately spoiled. It couldn't happen to a nicer blogger. :)
