Everything is amazing so far.  The zombie head and stitch markers are my faves, they're too funny.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

I received the BEST package ever from GamerGirl earlier this week!! Honestly, I'm so spoiled I don't know where to begin!

Here is everything, out of the package and pre-unwrapping.  I loved it.. I felt like it was my birthday. Smiley

For the category "2 inches or less," Gamergirl sent me a set of lovely handmade stitchmarkers.  They will definitely come in use as I have more WIPs than a person should have and I'm always losing and misplacing my stitchmarkers.  

For the "Sender's Choice" category, she made me this cute project bag which will be perfect for toting around my newest sock project:

Next up is the something "long," to which she refers to the yardage in a skein of Malabrigo Sock Yarn (nom nom nom)

I made Ishbel earlier this year from a skein of Malabrigo Sock and it's easily one of my favorite yarns.  The colorway is gorgeous.. I can't wait to cast something on!

For the "local" category, she sent two skeins of Lorna's Laces in a colorway that was inspired by a local field of poppies.  The colors are so rich and vibrant, it's gorgeous! (And I love the use of the "local" category!)

At this point, I was already overwhelmed with being spoiled but honestly, it gets better...

GamerGirl sent a skein of handdyed sock yarn in a colorway she's called "Lion." (She sent the inspiration photo, too, and the colors are spot on!)  The colors are gorgeous and her dyeing is awesome!

For the "lumpy" category, she sent me a skein of her very own handspun! It's 4oz of Blue Faced Leicester Wool and it's spun to be thick and thin. I can't wait to find a fun project for this!

And possibly the piece de la resistance (and for the "golden" category), a hemlock ring blanket for my son (currently slated to make his first appearance in September).  The color is off in this photo and I'm sorry.  (If you've got a better picture, GamerGirl, please share!!! I tried several different ways to capture the color and beauty of the blanket but I'm sorry to say that I think I failed flat.)  She used a superwash wool so I can easily toss it in the washing machine and the color perfectly matches one of the colors in the nursery curtains.

Honestly, the blanket is gorgeous and the Hemlock Ring Blanket has been in my Ravelry queue for ever.

This was a really, really amazing package. Thank you for the massive spoilage, GamerGirl and I hope you like my package just as much!

I have had some photo posting issuses, but they have been resolved. So on to the awesome package I've received from clumsy_momma.
First off, Lumpy. A beautiful, warmer weather scarf. It's made with several different thicknesess of yarn to make it lumpy. So beautiful, and so pink Cheesy

Local and no bigger than 2". Local wet felted soap the smells so good. I'm telling ya this stuff is seriously awesome. And some skull buttons, hmmmm what to put these on, Everytime I look at them I come up with a new project for them.

The letter L. Super soft, absolutely beautiful Llama Yarn.


Long. A absolutly awesome cowl. The patten on this is so pretty.
 I thought about taking some action shots, but it was close to 90 today.

Golden. The cutest little knit sculpture (/ ami?).  Huh Perched loving atop two golden apples from the Hercules myth, are a little Golden Dart Frog (but touch she's poisionous) and a little golden snail.

And Sender's Choice. Cupcakes! Om nom nom.

Thanks clumsy_momma for a great swap.
