YAY! I found my July LJ Secret Pal package stuffed deep in my mailbox yesterday, full of wonderful stuff!
I had just come home from work and a gruelling workout, and ripped into this box of Pocky like I'd never seen food before haha I had to be careful not to get chocolate on my new yarn!
I got a lovely ball of Nashua Handknits "creative focus" in my favorite color of green, and a big beautiful skein of Southwest Trading Company's Soysilk! I've never knit with soysilk before so this should be fun!
Also included was a very nice little letter, and a chinese change purse that open when you press the ends together. Inside the little purse was a tiny bottle with the tiniest origami bird I've ever seen! My Secret Pal's sister made it for me! I'm totally amazed.
OH! and I almost forgot! She also made me a wonderful crocheted mini totoro! eeeeee! Cutest thing ever, and I love amigurumi!
Next time I think I'll do the $50! $30 doesn't go very far when you're trying to spoil someone ;)
That mini change purse with the minibird!
And last but not least...
