Today was full of good things and good news. I was thinking about how blessed and lucky I am and then when I got home, my package was waiting. It's made a good day perfect! Here's what I first saw:
Camille sent some of my favorite yarn to knit charity scarves with, Caron Simply Soft Shadows. It's really soft, knits up with a changing variegated pattern, and doesn't have to be handwashed. Although it's acrylic, it doesn't feel squeeky to knit with. And there's enough here for 2 homeless people to get scarves! She roasted some pumpkin seeds (and have I told everyone how much I love pumpkin?). They are already half gone. She sent a fun plastic glass that is going to go to work with me on Monday, some delicious cinnamon-apple shower gel, some yummy little soaps that smell like a wedding cake and 3 heart-shaped cookie cutters. (The yarn without a band was attacked by one of her yarn-loving pups - she knew I'd understand)
As if this wasn't enough, she tucked in 2 knitting magazines that I haven't read and best of all, Knitting For Peace, a book I have really, really wanted.
Camille has been one of the best swap partners ever! She really got to know me and not only gifted me with things she knew I'd like, but also included things that made me feel like I was getting to know her too. I'm looking forward to getting to know her even more - a fellow Southerner and dog rescuer! Thanks for making this a great swap experience, Camille! Hugs to your furry posse and I hope you're feeling better.
Please tune in tomorrow so I can tell you about the other reasons I felt so lucky today!
