Know one thing: Packages are the best thing in life for college students.

I got this on Tuesday from my Secret Pal, but I haven’t had time to blog it yet…. so viola!

First stuff from my secret pal!

There’s some Fortissima Sock yarn in a really fun green/blue color – with a metallic thread running through it so it looks like it’s been sparkled with glitter. As soon as I saw it, I knew the perfect pattern that would do just the simplest amount of work and show off the glitteriness best… Uptown Boot Socks from the Favorite Socks book. Check it out:
Most of a sock

I got this package on Tuesday (it’s finals/moveout time, I hadn’t had time to blog it yet, I know I’m bad!) and started these socks on Wednesday – and look how far I am! It’s an awesome pattern – and I forced myself to learn how to cable without a cable needle – and now that I know how to do that, they’re flying! I’m having a lot of fun knitting these!

Next up in the package was a cotton washcloth.
A face cloth from my Secret Pal!

It’s really soft and it’s so nice because I hadn’t spent the time to knit myself one lately. So this was wrapped around a box that had some oh so yummy stuff inside:
This is hand-made all natural soap from the Gudonya etsy shop (which I’ve marked as a favorite- and bought a few more things from…) which I just absolutelyLOVE!

Thank you secret pal! You did a great job!!

    I’m glad you liked it. Gudonya is my absolute favorite and I swear I ought to get commission for the amount of pimping I do for her, lol.

    What a fabulous SP package! The socks are looking great.

    My family never sent me packages when I was in college. My parents were always very generous in other ways, and sometimes they would send me a $10 bill for Valentine candy, but they just didn’t like to use the post office.

    I was always so envious of people who received care packages, esp. at finals time. When I have kids, I’m sending them boatloads of stuff!
