You guys rock!  I feel kinda lame now, I hope mine's not anti-climactic, I was trying to think of tiny things to put inside to hid them real well. Now I have a bajillion other ideas that I should have done to spiff it out.   Embarrassed  Hope there's another round and I can go nuts!!!

Alright!  I was a crocheting fool last night!  I finished the head and part of a boot!  WHeehoo!


But, more importantly, here's everything I've uncovered so far.  Well, there was also a sesame honey candy, but I gobbled that right up as it's my favorite.  Yar!  Here be me booty:



Thar be a doggy santa hat, a package of chicklets, a mini ecco bella chocolate bar (Hmm.. since I already took the picture...  delicious!   Cheesy), a bloomin' flower card (very neat!  I've never seen these before), a very pretty knitted headband that I'm wearing right now(the color is much more vibrant than in the picture), and awesome hamburger and french fry earrings (also being worn right now)!  I love everything!  I assume the earrings are inspired by my love of Jughead and not my horrible fast food eating ways  Wink

Oh!  I almost forgot!  My attempted action shot:



Thank you so much Miss Violaceous!  I'm having so much fun uncovering everything very very slowly  Grin  I can only hope that you like your yarnball half as much as I dig mine  Grin  Well, back to crochetin'!

Yay! The sesame candy was just a lucky guess. There are a few more of those in there, too. The eco bella bar is a "health by chocolate" mini, little supplement chocolate thingies. The headband is knitted lace out of a 100% bamboo yarn, the rest of a skein I used to make a Molly's Headband for myself. That pattern isn't Molly's Headband, though, it's a hybrid of the Molly's Headband structure with the Lily of the Valley lace pattern from Knitty's Perdita.

Closeup:


This is the one I did for myself out of the same yarn, which shows the colors of the yarn better:


For those who haven't encountered them before, the flower card is something I picked up at the local organic foods store. It has flower seeds embedded in handmade paper, and after you receive and read the card you plant it in some potting soil and it grows wildflowers.

The mini chiclets are because you said you like things that are bright that make you feel like a kid. They are a guilty pleasure of mine. Wink

And yes, the earrings are because of your love of jughead. how great would they be with a jughead tshirt?

You know, as a child I ate those things all the time, but I don't think I've had them since I was about eight.  So you have succeeded! Cheesy I just took a closer look at the back of the package and they claim that there are approximately 150 tiny chiclets in there.. woah! They must be tinier then I even remember  Grin

Love the headband and people/puppy action shot. I checked the status of my package with my tracking number and it actually got shipped farther away before it even got sent my direction. Im in Washington and its in Massachusetts.  I want it now!!! Oh and of course I want my partner to receive too Tongue

Hah, I didn't mean to imply that. I just figured you own jughead shirts. Sorry. Sad

But there is certainly something else big and cool and non-archie-comic related in the center of the ball for you to look forward to...

It's here, it's here, it's here, well it's in my building and I'm at work but the concierge just called me to let me know that's it has arrived whooo hooo I can't wait to get home and unwrap the yarny goodness. I really hope slickmariavic gets hers soon, I feel guilty now that I shipped regular and not priority...postman said it would only take 1 additional day and it wasn't worth the extra $$ to ship priority booo I'm going to put the disgruntle in disgruntled postal worker next time I see him grrr. Don't worry Slickmariavic It's worth the wait I promise! Smiley

LOL its all good, if it would have only made a days difference then I wouldnt have paid for it either.  My postman conned me into it 3-5 vs a week or more so it was definately worth the extra 2 bucks for me. Horay I can't wait for you to open it!  Grin Grin Grin
