AsphaltQueen sent me SO MUCH STUFF! I couldn't believe the size of the box. I would have taken a photo of it before it was all unwrapped, but my roomate and I were too anxious (at 10:30 am) to open it that I didn't bother.
Prepare yourself for a million photos.
LOOK AT THIS HAUL!
I said that I'd really like to learn how to knit. She put together an amazing learn-to-knit kit with yarn, patterns, a book, and box with all the things I need!
14 skeins of yarn!!! The white stuff is so soft and lovely. I rubbed it on my roomates face to prove this too her.
The book and binder of patterns! She even purchased the pattern for knit boots I had on my Wist so I could make them myself (hopefully)
Beautiful note cards and a scrabble note to me. I "oooooh!"-ed when I saw the cards. So pretty
BUT THERE'S STILL MORE!
An adorable crocheted octopus! Octopi are my absolute favorite.
The softest (CONVERTABLE!) mittens I have encountered. In love.
and socks with ALPACAS on them! WHAT? THAT'S AWESOME!
And SIX, yes... six! necklaces and 2 rings! Good Lord!
The octopus has watch cogs as suckers. That is awesome.
The tree necklace, though, is my favorite of the lot. I love green.
A jumbly green and blue necklace that is oh so lovely and will be worn a very great deal.
and a sparrow necklace with watch parts that is almost exactly the same as one in my wist. So pretty!
Another sparrow necklace that I absolutely adore.
A watch piece with golden wings!
You can't really make out the rings, but one is a teacup (awww!) and the one with the bird has a watch face as the background.
I was spoiled ROTTEN! and I love love love everything. I can't believe how wonderful everything is and how much work went into this.
AsphaltQueen you are my hero, and you have made everyone sufficiently jealous of your mad swapping skills! Thank you SO MUCH!
