Spoiled Rotten in a scavenger hunt!

March 4, 2008 at 4:30 pm 8 comments

The latest in my swap addiction (which is now limited to 3 swaps a year…and a few Random acts of kindness thrown in for good measure…) was the Knitter’s Scavenger Hunt swap!

My spoiler, Michelle is also the hostess of the hot cocoa swap! How neato-bandito!

So, she had me completely in the dark. Just absolutely completely in the dark…she sent me the most random questionnaire…in addition to the one I had posted here for the longest time.

and the pack came yesterday..

Before I get to the contents, let me explain a smidge-the swap was one where you were given categories and you had to find items to match. The pack was so WHOAH MAMA that I had to take pics in category groupings…as well as take the pictures when Monkey was asleep…because I wanted to get everything in the pictures!!!

so, without further ado..here they are!

The first category is Local


Michelle lives in PA, and found yarn that is spun locally that will make a terrific felted bag (note that cool pattern!), a visitor’s guide to a great area of PA (I’ve been there to see the Wilkes Barre-Scranton hockey team way back in the day!), and several things for Isaac from the Crayola Factory! Neato! He got some stuff that we’ve never seen before…and he tried to walk off with the second he saw them. Especially the “recolorz Cars” sheets!

The next category was Round

Round! A chocolate chip cookie tape measure!

The cookie? that’s a tape measure! She also sent soaps and shampoo from Disney! Woohoo! Mickey soaps! Mickey Shampoo!!

The next category… GREEN!!Green...frogs, tink...green...yarn...mmm

Neat green yarn…mmm, Froggie stitch markers! A froggie coin purse/holder for all things neato bandito! A recycled tink card! Ooh! Tink! Makes me think of the nights I used to extend my shift into fireworks, and just watch Tink!

Next up is the T category!

T..for treats...and tattoos!

mmmm…treats….chocolate…reeses….mints…GUMMI SAVERS!!!!!! and a new treat…chocolate covered sunflower seeds! Must try…must try…

and a treat for the Monkey…Cars Tattoos! He didn’t spy those last night…so we’ll see what he does with them..especially the one of Guido and Luigi (otherwise known in our house as “pit stop and tires”)

Next category…Hard

oooh...all so hard! Super hard!

The first hard thing was a Pattern for socks! I’d been peeking at these socks, and was kind of like…hrm…do I? Don’t I? Well, Michelle answered that for me. She picked a complicated pattern that didn’t seem TOO terrible, but that would still be a challenge. And this WILL Be a challenge! But, it’s so neato looking…it’s got kitty whiskers all over it! That may be my next sock…

she also sent a Dumbo tin with the two memo pads in it…as well as needle point protectors that she made herself! They’re SOCKS!!! COOL BEANS!!!

Next up is Funny

Book! Funny! Reading time!!

This book looks absolutely hilarious. You can’t see the tag line…which is “things yhou’d only ask a doctor after your 3rd martini” I so need this giggle! Woohoo!!

And the final category was Spoiler’s Choice…and after the many emails, Michelle chose…



So, the items here are all of our love for random…

Spongebob mac and cheese (Isaac loves this stuff..) a kitty magnet for my fridge, a box of funfetti cake mix to make with the boy (he also loves this stuff!!), mitten shaped playing cards and the most random thing of all…


Yes, you read that right. Knitted Broccoli! This thing is the most random thing I’ve seen in a long time…and it’s hilarious…and wonderful all at the same time.

I showed it to Maeve last night and she was all weirded out. She said between the blade of grass and this, knitted vegitation was weirding her out.

Hey. I like it. It’s so random, it’s fun!

But I really need to say a HUGE thank you to Michelle! This pack was amazing and really made my day!
