I won a giveaway!

Dear Blog, 

I recently won a giveaway from Monica over at When life gives you lemons… I’ve been meaning to blog it for a while, but I’ve been hopelessly remiss. I love getting mail, and I absolutely lost it over all these goodies!

First off, the view on opening the box..

Image

 

I was surprised to see some pretty heathered grey sock yarn in the box! It even had aloe vera in it, which seemed brilliant to me. (Both for fingers and toes!)

Image

 

And then I realized that it was a gift from a fellow knitter, Monica’s sister Andi! (Her blog is here.) The reason I got sent to this giveaway was that Andi posted about it on her blog, and I went over to check it out. The yarn was a sweet surprise that made me smile. Thanks Andi!

Then some Burt’s Bees honey lip balm, which is getting a LOT of use in this cold Boston fall, and some really pretty nude nail polish.

Image

 

She also sent me a nice card! (which you don’t get to read mwahahahaha)

Image

 

and I got this pretty gold bath poof, which I really needed.. It’s almost like she had insider information 😛

Image

 

Then there was this really cool journal, with a sentiment on the cover that I thoroughly agree with. 

Image

 

Then there was this cool magazine: (I’ve already read it twice!)

Image

 

And, just when you thought that the knitting presents were done, here are more!

Image

Serpent’s Tail, by Grace Mcewen, (raveled here) which I think is absolutely GORGEOUS! Look at those amazingly unique cables! lovelovelove. I think it would be so pretty with one of my new scarf/shawl pins. If you guys are lucky, I’ll show them off sometime..

AND, this beauty:

Image

It is Simply Ribbed Scarf, by Grace Mcewen. (raveled here) It’s perfect for all the boys in your life who won’t wear fancy cables or stripes or anything like that, but it still has a pattern to make it interesting enough that you won’t want to stick a DPN through your eye socket before you finish it 😛 

Isn’t all this stuff great! What a fabulous giveaway. Now everyone be jealous 😛
