I was left speachless!

WOW......I was left speachless this morning when I opened a package from my "Mellow" Secret Pal. I tell you this coz it takes a lot to make me speachless!!!!

Where do I begin to tell you what was in the package...It was like opening "A Magical box" there was so much goodies in it.

There was "Sensational knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch. I have been lusting after this book for ages and now I actually hold it in my hands. The only problem now is deciding which socks to knit first.

Digging deeper into the box was 2 skiens of shepherd sock yarn by Lorna's Laces in colourway "Vera", Which as you can see by the photo browns and pinks. I have never knitted with Lorna's laces yarns before so I am looking forward to that.

Delving deeper into the box there was a bookmark, and a tin of "Crafty Girl" sugar free berry-mints. Once they have been eaten I intend to use the box to keep my stitch markers in, save me from loosing them like I do at the moment!

A sachet of chocolate chai and one of vanilla chai, which I had heard about in knitty
chat, but never tried. Well I had the chocolate one earlier today and I'm hooked, it was gorgeous!!

Lurking in a corner of the box was a brass sheep shaped knitting needle gauge. A most wonderfully useful gadget, now I know what the US needle sizes are in mm, without going online to find out.

THEN right at the bottom of the box was the most amazing item EVER.........

A pattern for a "Peacock Feathers Shawl" designed by Dorothy Siemens for Fiddlesticks Knitting ( )
(Angela/ your heart out!!!!!!!! LOL)

All that is left now to say is a really BIG thank you to the greatest Mellow Secret Pal ever. In the words of Tina are "Simply the best".....
