Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday was a wonder-filled day. 

What a wonderful gift package I received from my Secret Pal!  Here's just part of it -- Look at the spa products: Jafra Ginger and Seaweed Body Massage Cream, Massage Oil, and Hand Cream. They smell divine. 






The yarns are a pretty green tweed in cotton and  acrylic. I 'm intrigued by this yarn: it's soft and pretty. I never would have picked it out, but I'm so glad you did, Karen, my no-longer-a-secret pal!

BUT THERE'S MORE

Included and shown in the the foreground is an oh, so lovely skein of 100%  BABY ALPACA. The blue is hard to photograph accurately. Believe me, I tried. It is a rich, deep blue with a purple tinge to it. That really  comes out it the picture. I did the face snuggle test and this skein passed with flying colors! So soft....ahhhhh.....purrrr.



BUT THERE'S EVEN MORE...SEE!


A really neat bag, that came with the Jafra set of spa products. Oh, I LOVE bags!

The needles and stitch markers! 





Look how pretty:




Thank you so much Karen. I will really enjoy all of it!

I am so glad you like all of your gifts!
 
I enjoyed visiting your blog! What a great package from your SP - such yummy yarn! I have a set of those pretty needles and stitch markers too - also a gift from a SP.
I love your spindle! Where did you get that? Not that I spin, but it's something I want to learn how to do.
And ohhh - all those ends to weave in on the socks - but well worth it.
 
The needles are fantastic and would make a great Christmas gift.
