What have I done to deserve such good karma?

"Sometime in my wicked miserable past I must have done something good" (sung with the voice of Julie Andrews).

Yesterday I had the most amazing (I repeat AMAZING) parcel from my SP11.

A big parcel full of little parcels:

Starting with a card and chocolates,

Then more sock yarn (Keith already sees himself in these socks!) and a scented candle.

An amazing T shirt.

A sheepy tape measure (adorable the tail pulls out) - you can't have too many tape measures, and a minature basket of yarn and knitting.

As if that wasn't enough there was this amazing book which I have lusted over for so long. My heart was all a flutter. I just love it!

Could it get any better? Well yes it could. There was a handknitted shawl in a gorgeous burnt orange. All those little stitches, thousands of them made just for me. Just how lucky can one woman get?

Here it is all together, and I think I forgot the handcream, it looks like evening primrose (just what I need).

Jealous? I bet you are. Well I declared a hiatus in my diet to hve a chocfeast and started planning new projects to join all my other WIP's with the new yarn.

My wonderful benefactor? Is Nicole from Germany who blogs here. Go and say hi to her and hope you get palled with her for SP12! The really sad thing is that she previously sent a parcel that never arrived. I hate to think of all that knitterly love feeling abandoned somewhere. I hope some deprived appreciative knitter has found it.

Hi Maylin,

it is so great that you loved all the stuff I sent to you. It was funny to knit the shawl for you. And make all the other presents for you. Sorry that the one package was lost in space.
Greetings from rainy Germany,
Nicole
