can you tell someone’s been watching Blues Clues? Hey. At least it’s not the Scary Australian freaks.

So, yesterday, I go out to get my mail at the obscene hours which it arrives…and there is a package for ME with this postmark…

 Before I knew it, I was humming “O, Canada” to myself, and to Doug’s complete confusion, and Isaac’s delight. 
the package came via

(yes, that says “air mail- Par Avion”)
Sooo, my Secret Pal is from Canada! Quebec to be exact! Home of the Habs! Schweet! 

Well, we get into the car to go to dinner (jaw hurts…didn’t want to cook. Long story. will be posted under “ouchies.”) , and I tore open the package with as much gusto as I could, because Doug wanted a look at the “Canadan postal service stuf, eh!?” Weirdo. BUT, I digress…
So, inside this package, I was completely spoiled ROTTEN. 
Here’s what was inside:

(smidge blury because small boy decided he was going to knock my hand and rock the chair…)
That’s Fleece Artist Merino sock yarn..with pattern! 
That’s Tofutsies! NEATO (and that raised a discussion about people with shellfish allergies being able to knit with tofutsies…)
That’s the spring issue of Knitscene from Interweave Knits! (with some wicked cool patterns that I’m dying to get on the needles, I might add! and one is for a friend of mine…so I can’t detail the exact nature of the cool patterns here!)
That’s a neato bandito bookmark with Japanese Kanji for Strength and an amazing quote. 
and the note that came with it!
Oooh…I’m one lucky girlie! 
Here’s an “up close” of the fiber artist. These colors are just amazing…and the squish factor…WHOAH MAMA! 

Lookie at those colors! Wowzer! I’m in awe!
and Isaac got a hold of my tofutsies. 

Note the look of “dang! I got caught! I was going to do THIS

with it! They ARE drumsticks, aren’t they mommy??”

yeah, right supersquirt. 

So, thank you my darling SP! This stuff is AWESOME! I can’t wait to cast on with the fleece artist and the tofutsies! oooh! People at the yarn shop are going to be JEALOUS of my fleece artist! Whoopie!!! 
THANK YOU!!! I’m so glad you’re my SP!

    Isn’t the Fleece Artist gorgeous? I’ll admit I had a hard time letting it go 😉 I’ve never tried Tofutsies myself, but I’ve heard good things about it.
