Goodness gracious, great balls of YARN!

look at it! isn't it gorgeous!?!?! i can't even begin to describe the joy i felt when i laid my eyes on these bundles just bursting with gorgeous colours!!! this all thanks to my overwhelmingly fabulous gift elf Kim in exchange for the Holz & Stein ebony needles i was able to get for her. 3 skeins of shadow in vineyard and in sunset, so i can make 2 mary jane cardigans!! woohoo! and 2 skeins each of Alpaca Cloud in iris and Shimmer in grape hyacinth. i just hope those needles are as much fun for her, as i had dancing around the living room with these, making my boyfriend think i was out of my mind.
but wait! that's not all! she sent more. so much more! she sent more fibre for me to spin, and more NORO. NORONORONORONORONORONORONORONORO. you know, if you say it long and fast enough, it sounds just like my kittens when they purr. coincidence? i think not. she sent me a peppermint foot scrubby, all delicious smelling and if i'm not mistaken, homemade, along with some yummy blackberry lip balm, which were in the cute little snowman bag. the picture doesn't show it very well, but that big blue candle, which smells divine, and will be accompanying my next bath, is sitting on a gorgeous carved, wooden candle rest, made out of the same wood as the beautiful ornament in the foreground. and there are the other two lovely smelly candles, and a pretty flowered photo album, which is just what i need, because i'm getting tired of all my pics being pc only. and last, but not least, two whopping skeins of knitpicks dye-your-own which are going to be so much fun!!! i have to convince my honey he has to keep an eye on the cats for an afternoon while i go dye crazy, i can't wait!! it's just all almost too good to be true! and the funny thing is, Kim knew that with the thesis n all being finally over, i was really ready for some knit treats, but what she didn't know, was that this past week was none other than my birthday! so the timing couldn't have been more perfect. i can't wait to see what she thinks of the package i'm getting ready to send her! i can only hope she'll be half as happy as she's made me!
