I received from miss B today!!!!
here are the pix!
first off, I have got to say, this is the BIGGEST myb I have ever received in all my swapping.
I opened this bad boy and was greeted by a sweet note, the pattern for the gilmore vest
from my queue and so much yarn!
the balls (which were covered in coffee themed pins. This was my favorite)
hair doo-dads! The cameos are GORGEOUS, and if my scraggly-thin hair isn't enough to keep it on my head i will turn them into clips.
more hair fun and an ADORABLE keychain.
crafty wonders! hand warmers, a little crafty wreath and the end of ball #1
dinner break! between bites of perogie I kept unwinding and unearthed some soap which smells divine.
some kitchen goodies (still coffee-themed! I love it!), an amber-colored candle holder and a peek at my dessert underneath the yarn.
yummy (and some non-edible but still yummy candles for my candle-holder)
a fruit cozy (which i think is adorable), a really awesome mug, some frosting flavored chapstick ANOTHER crocheted good (bookmark) and some coffee-themed fabric. Miss B, you are a crochet-goddess.
while i unwrapped this next phase of the ball I got increasingly more and more excited. I knew she had mentioned making me a pop-tart cozy and I told her any size would be fine so she made me a HUGE poptart! I love this thing so much. There is also a lovely bobby pin, a plant-able bookmark (how cool is that!?) and a cute little hand-beaded (?) pouch.
but let's get back to this giant poptart that spanned the entire 2nd yarnball.
The only downside to this is that I THINK it might be perfectly sized for an e-reader like a kindle, which only makes me want a kindle more.... DANG
the poptart was wrapped around this amazingly soft, squooshy cowl which is so similar to one that I have been meaning to knit. It's SO warm and soft and I literally have not taken it off since I put it on.
It has a really cool texture.
and I could keep my head warm with it too!
the very center of the yarnball, like a spool of thread, was this glass sugar shaker with all these perfectly scrawled quotes about coffee and sugar on it. This was my favorite as it related to mustaches AND sugar.
how did you know I need all this stuff for my new house still?!
I can't wait for you to receive yours Miss B. I was proper spoiled and you are the best!
