It's here, it's here!!

I remembered this past weekend that the oh so lovely Allitrya Spelling send me a confirmation number for my package. So I checked it and you know what it said? "Your package has been delivered." So with an excited squeal I ran to the front door and sure enough there was my package. Not checking my number every 5 hours actually made the waiting time seem shorter, imagine that. But I digress.

I opened the box and inside was amazing spoiliage (is that a word?) times like ten. So, here is a pictures of the overall kit, and then some pictures of the individual things.

So, the gloves are an amazing color, and they are SO warm, that they actually keep my fingers warm! Now if you don't know me you might go "well of course they will" but the thing is my fingertips are always like three degrees away from being frostbitten, so Fingerless gloves are a bit useless to me since they generally don't cover the part that needs covering. But not these babies!! I didn't want to take them off today, they were so nice and warm. They are also a modified version of the fetching gloves. Instead of the cables twisting, they wiggle from side to side to resemble snakes. The lady stalked me well. *solemn nod*

The yarn is a gorgeous monochromatic shade of blue. It's almost too pretty to turn into anything. And it's the Stroll Tonal (Which I keep pronouncing 'Tonelle' for some reason) line from KnitPicks so it's also uber soft. I just want to snuggle with it. I'm thinking it will sit in my bin for a long time before I get practically smacked in the face with the perfect pattern.

The bookmark is pretty neat too. It's in Slytherin colors, and has our snakes on it. Currently the little critter is home between the pages of Mozart's Blood by Louise Marley. I need an actual bookmark for it anyways, so this is great. Oh, did I mention that it's double knitted so it's reversible?

I also got some knitting needles, size US1, so they'll be great for sock knitting. There were some cables for my interchangeable set as well, which was awesome. I didn't have any 40" lengths and now I do! There were also some goodies with knitting patterns printed on them: Pencils, notecards, notebook, magnet notepad, and a pencil case. And of course a knitting pattern! (not pictures above because I'm an airhead) It's the Nagini socks. I can' wait to knit them up. The pattern looks wonderful. =) OH! And hot chocolate as well as some cappuccino mixes. Coffee and chocolate. What more could a girl want?

I'm so glad you like it! It was super fun stalking your preferences and putting together the kit. =D
