It’s A Bloomin’ Day!!!

Ok… maybe I should have waited, but I couldn’t. Sorry. I had a lousy day (I’m suffering with allergies/sinus again) and when no mail was in the box and I checked the porch and huge package was on the porch – I tore into it. Well, it came all the way from Australia – do you really blame me? Only wonderful things can come from Australia. I checked the post mark and since I just mailed something to that side of the world myself, I was astounded to see it made it in under a week. Go Australian and US postal service. I knew they were good, but dang this is really good.

I was just truly blessed by Donna of Random Knits – who by the way is a phenomenal knitter and please make sure to visit her blog – I’ve been gaggling over the pink flowered tea cozy. Note to self, must make one. Let me just say first off – the socks fit perfect and I so love them. The rose color is wonderful. It’s a perfect pink for me and I totally love the pattern. I will be wearing them out tomorrow and showing them off.

– these colors are unbelievable gorgeous. I mean gorgeous. I don’t have a pattern yet, but I have to find one that will be perfect for this gorgeous yarn.

This bag is another incredible little gift. I can’t wait to use this – the colors are perfect!!! I love it.

 

Plus these great notes and of course chocolate – rose chocolate – I, of course, love the theme. I’m going to wait until all my taste buds and smelling senses return back to normal before I dive into those. I want to savor each one.

 

I don’t really think I can say I love everything enough – Thank you so much Donna. Thank you so much Amanda for putting this swap together. I really love everything.

  • You’re the second person to get a package and frankly I don’t blame you one bit for opening it! Everything looks fabulous and the socks have long had me drooling — enjoy all the wonderful goodies!

  • I wouldn’t have waited either…what a great package! The socks are beautiful and so you. Hope you get to feeling better soon:)

  • I’ve been admiring that tea cozy myself, was there a pattern referenced? She got your colors bang on didn’t she and what lovely socks! Gorgeous!

  • Oh, Rose, I have the exact same sock yarn in the exact same color. I don’t know what I’m going to knit with it, either, so if you find a perfect pattern, let me know. Donna is a wonderful knitter and has been an wonderful swapper for you.
