So, my 31 minutes of cardio was the longest EVER (yes, 31, don't ask. .. 13 minutes on the stair stepper, 18 minutes on a bike). I got home and, immediately started to open my package from Katie! IT ROCKS!
Here is everything in one shot (the straws were not in the package, just on my counter):
The first thing I opened was Fergie the Frog. I thought that was something green, but then I opened his note and there were all sorts of jokes. My favorite "Q: On what planet would a space frog live? A: Plutoad" he he! But he wasn't funny either. . .. he was my something round! I've never seen these notion cases before but they are freakin adorable and fergie will have a nice home in my knitting bag!
My something green: Two skeins of KnitPicks Essential that I believe I will be pairing with some leftover fawn to make some solid socks with contrasting toes & heels! Nice!
Then, my favorite item, something funny: A Knitted Henry Rollins! I LOVE THIS! I had to stop opening and run up in the garage workshop to show Jake. He CRACKED up. Seriously, the doll even has his tattoos! Totally fun and awesome!!
Something local: A CD by Joel Plaskett Emergency, who is from Nova Scotia (she said all the Maritime provinces are 'local'). It's in my CD player right now and I really like it! The song on right now reminds me a bit of Bruce Springsteen. (Henry took all possible photo ops. . . those darn celebrities!)
Something 'T': Treats! Chicken bones - cinnamon candy filled with bittersweet chocolate, and multi-fruit flavored Twizzlers.
Something Hard: A 100% recycled (yay!) notebook with a lovely quote about kisses and a wonky, bendy pencil.
Spoilers Choice was 'Squishy Squashy Miscellaneous': 4 balls of Sean Sheep wool. The pictures don't show the color very well, but it's a nice autumnal mix.
I think it may become a Sophie bag.
I totally adore this package, and I think mine must be the best of everyone's because I got a rock star! Seriously, top that! :)
THANK YOU KATIE!
