A Belated Thanks

I thought I'd have a chance to post this on Friday, but it hasn't happened. Where did my weekend go??? I swear there's a black hole out in the universe that sucks up nothing but weekends and vacations. I don't feel like I got much done, but I stayed busy although I hardly got any knitting in.

So I am late to publicly thank my awesome secret pal for my second SP11 package. This time around, she went for quality vs quantity, which is a winner in my book any day. Here's what I received:

Wheeee! A really cool frame for pictures of my fur babies:

I know it says dogs, but I'm putting Criquette and Bitsy's pictures in there too. Fortunately they can't read and they'll never know unless Chloe or Abbie rub it in. I have a thing for black picture frames - almost every frame in my house is black - how did she know?

And I also got this fantastic book! This is a book I didn't know about - haven't seen it at any local stores or on Amazon, but if I had, I would definitely have wanted it! It's divided into chapters by technique (knit, purl, cables, lace, fair isle, etc.) with stitch patterns for each technique.

I didn't have anything like it so I am quite happy. Plus, I love getting a new book because I love books. I'm hoping to have time to start reading it this week. Thank you, SP!!! You have a real talent for choosing things I love and would pick out for myself! I hope you are being spoiled equally rotten by your upstream pal.

Thanks so much for the really cool yarn from the contest. I got it awhile ago, and just completely forgot to drop you a thank you! (Where are my manners?!?)

Anyway, it's beautiful! I haven't put it away with the rest of my stash because I just keep admiring the color.

Bossy fell into the same black hole (hear the echo?)
