As promised, yarny goodness

Well today I had a chance to get to the post office and pick up a couple of packages - the first was from my knittyboard Rut Bustin' Sock Swap partner, who turned out to be Bad Amy!

The outside of the box had pictures of people knitting - one even wearing yarn on her head! The whole thing before unwrapping the little individual packages:

The Thelonious pattern, treats for the furry residents of my household, and star beads - I'm really going to find an occasion to wear those in public!

And after some unwrapping I found these lovely goodies:

The sheep tape measure is just adorable, and I can never have enough tape measures as they seem to always get (temporarily) lost. I find them, stockpile them on my dresser, then take them every time I can't find one in my bag. Eventually I go through older knitting projects and bags I don't use frequently and look under the bed and find them all again.

The Toblerone brings me great joy since I have always longed for one. Now, don't laugh, I'm being totally serious here! I have had the chance to taste Toblerone before, I've had small pieces of other peoples' and I think I had a few mini ones once. However I have never had my very own full size Toblerone, and I look at them and think about how I want one every time I see one in the store! Apparently at those times I always decide to 'be good' and I don't ever buy them.

There's also some Mandarin body scrub, a little peanut butter chocolate nubbin, and a new kind of chai to add to my collection.

And now the yarn you've been waiting for:

Both of these beauties are Fleece Artist mill ends.

The purpose of the swap was to send yarn that busted the recipients "sock rut" - my rut is blue, in case you didn't know. ;) I think my pal managed to do this quite well and still send yarn that I love!

And a teaser for next time... I got my Taste of Germany package!

What? I never said I didn't like my blue rut!
