Prize Mail!!!

As I pulled out of the driveway yesterday on my way to the grocery store, I saw Mr. Mailman. And I saw Mr. Mailman had put a package in my mailbox. It took all of my willpower to leave it there and go for the groceries, but I did it.

However, the minute I got home (even before I put all of the cold stuff away), I ran to the mailbox for my package. My assumption was correct, and it was my prize from Zonda's Blogiversary contest!!! I'm sure I unintentionally made it difficult for her, because when she asked my yarn type and color preferences, I told her I'd be thrilled with anything. It's true though - I don't have strong dislikes for any colors, and I love all sorts of yarns. So I was excited to see what surprise might be in the package!!



She could not have made a better choice!! The yarn you see there is Fraises des Boise from Scout's Swag! Isn't it gorgeous?? She also included a cute little notepad, some Burt's Bee's cuticle cream, and some Burt's Bee's lip balm. There was also a pretty knitting note-card (which she may have made herself??), but I forgot to grab it off m desk and put it in the picture. Thank you so much, Zonda!

Congratulations! What lovely gifts too, especially that yummy yarn. I can't wait to see what delightful garment you whip up with it (is a pair of socks one garment or two garments?).

Good for you, I never win anything. But then again I don't enter a whole lot of things either.
Can't wait to see what you knit with it.
