Angie, you are awesome!

Angie is a fellow knitter/crafter that I met here and a person to whom I look forward to chatting with via messaging. Through these messages, I discovered her blog, and replied to a post that she made where she was asking to do a swap. She wanted a hand-made bag to carry her knitting in and in return I got some yarn-y goodness, handmade stitch markers, buttons from her personal stash to match the yarn and an incredible sewing book dated back to the early '80's. I am soooo excited to use this wool and add the buttons to it. It almost certainly will become a hat so I will be busy looking for a pattern for it. I was soooo excited when I saw this hanging out of my mailbox that I think I almost peed my pants!

I rushed inside and literally bowled the animals over to get to the front door only to find that the mailbox was empty. I really, really wanted to get this package on Monday or Tuesday b/c I would be the one to receive it. Nooooooo. It had to come today so that Hubbins could get it. So he thinks its funny to play this game with me that it didn't come today. Little did he know that I already knew that it arrived. You see, he was going to play this game of "oh, I thought you were waiting for a box...I totally forgot that this came in the mail". HA!!! Tricks on him, lol!
And this is what I sent to her:

I am so glad you got everything! and I cannot wait to see what you make with the yarn. I was thinking, maybe you could make a cowl or something like that as well with the yarn. Just a thought!
