More Surprises in My Mail!

I have a tendency to forget to pick up my mail. Thank you, Andrew, for always remembering to do this!!

I found two packages on my dining room table this morning, and look what the mailman brought me:


This is two skeins of Panda Superwash from Crystal Palace Yarns that I won in their Holiday KAL!! The color in Mint Print, and it is so soft!! I can't wait to get my hands on this!! But, it will have to be put on hold for a little while until I finish some other projects. This is a personal goal of mine this year: Start a project, finish a project!!

As you can see, I already have projects on the needles to finish before I begin another. So this will go into the Miles-proof bin for a little bit. I can see my next pair of socks starting to form in this yarn!!

Oh, no, you don't!! Don't even think about it, Beth!! This must wait until the other items are completed!! Don't pick up those DPN's--PUT THEM DOWN!!

Okay, that crisis is over!!

And I also received these two books from Kristen in her Christmas giveaway from Dancing in the Margins!!




WOW!! Two of some of my favorite things arriving in the mail on the same day!! Sure beats receiving only bills!!

Congratulations Beth! What great gifts. I have those little arguements with myself all the time too. It's just pitiful. :)
