I want to start off this post with a huge THANK YOU to my amazing swap partner, Serafina Starfire. She put together an awesome kit for me....
My owl arrived yesterday while I was out and left a few owl pellets behind to let me know he had been there. Since I wasn't home, he had to take my package to the Muggle Post Office for me to pick up later. I can only imagine the chaos this must've caused! Those poor Muggles. Anyway, I put on my best Muggle-ish clothes (I think they call them "jeans"?) and picked up my parcel this morning. Wow. It's incredible.
Here's a picture of the project bag..... sooooooo cool! It's the perfect size and shape, and look, it has the Gryffindor Lion, and on the back, a snitch!!!
And, if the super-cool bag wasn't enough, it was filled with all these goodies! (Wrapped in Gryffindor Red and Gold)
Here's everything unwrapped...
Tons of stuff, hey?
There's so much, where do I start? Well, there's the great project bag that I already showed you, then there's a collection of four sock patterns, Gryffindor Self-Striping sock yarn from Cosmic Fibers (Trapped Bar pattern, I've really been wanting to make that style!!!) Knit Picks circular needle (I love knit picks needles!) A hand-made needle case (very, very, cool, I'll give you a close up in a minute) Beautiful stitch markers (yes, close up picture coming up) Tissues, Hand cream, a Bath Bomb from my all-time favorite shop (Lush), and loads of Candy from Honeydukes, including my personal favorite Fizzing Whizbies! (Mmmmmmm!)
Wanna see that Needle case now?
It's really much more than just a needle case, it has accessories too! Notepad and pen (very, very handy) scissors, a spot for yarn needles (wow, this girl thinks of everything!) and a needle guage/ruler. It's sooo incredibly perfect, I don't know how I ever lived without this!
And here's the close-up of the stitch markers.... aren't they beautiful?
Not only did Serafina spoil me, but she sent along a gift for my house elf too! A cute little knitted owl! So adorable. I got off a quick picture of him before my house elf grabbed him and ran off.
Thank you Serafina!!! You're the best swap partner EVER!!!
You have made this such a positive experience that I think I'll sign up for another year at Hogwarts!
