Box o' goodies and new swap

I received a box o' goodness today from Jody at the Javajem blog Thank you, Jody!! You are so generous!

There was candy but it was (ahem) consumed before the camera came out. Inside was a beautiful card, these neat turquoise and silver earrings which look fantastic on me, yummy smelling candle and tile, a cool gecko mat, jumping beans (!!), felted soap which looks so very cool, and yarn: one skein Lorna's Laces sock yarn in Glenwood (such a pretty autumn color) and a skein of Orchid Thistle Lamb's Pride! I love it!

Ohh... and Gypsy LOVES the felted pet toy. She decided that playing "fetch" was not as much fun as playing "hoard the ball". Thank you, Jody!

I decided to knit up a pair of wristwarmers out of the Lorna's Laces... and while searching for a suitable pattern, I signed up to participate in another swap... this time around it is the Knit Mitt Swap Kit.

While the idea of making a bag is a little nervewracking to me at the moment, I think it will be a lot of fun to put together.

And... I received my final grades from last term- I'm rocking a 3.9!! A very good day overall!

Oh yay! I wasn't sure if your ears were pierced when I did some shopping - I'll have to go back now! I saw a pair with some colors I know you'll love. Your first package should be there pretty soon!

ps- I'll have to show you my black dog once I can reveal my "secret identity" :)
