The Mail Keeps Coming

My tea swap pal is the best! Look at what I got yesterday!



Four kinds of tea: Earl Grey (which I drink almost ever day), lemon ginger (which I drink whenever my tummy feels bad, or in the afternoon, PG Tips, and Peach Martini. That sounds fun!

Some tea biscuits

A wedding garter! How cool is that? The day before the package came, I was actually thinking that I didn't have a garter yet and I would need to find one somewhere. She read my mind!

And two balls of sock yarn w/ a pattern for toe up socks. Here's a close up:



Thank you, thank you, thank you, Sarah!

After I unpacked the box, I made up the ginger tea. It is so good. You can taste the real ginger in it. And I had some of the cookies. Yum. And dangerous! I think I'll take the sock yarn on the honeymoon. Socks might be the perfect, small honeymoon project. They'll be easy to bring to the beach, fit in my bag w/o too much bulk. Of course, I won't have any Internet that week, so if I get stuck, I'll be stuck. But I think I'll try. :)

My first experience with a knitting swap has been so much fun. I have all the pieces for my spoilee too. Just need to package it up and take it to the post office.

Something new and something blue!
