Totally Spoiled

My swap kit arrived today from Stuart Cauldwell! What can I say? He has totally spoiled me rotten this term.
I open the box to find the most amazing bag on top of a mountain of goodies!

I absolutely LOVE this bag.... Stuart really kept in mind that I'm on an Inter-House scholarship this year (I moved to Hufflepuff from Gryffindor) so he made my bag a House-Unity bag.... Isn't that awesome!?!?

Another photo of the bag.... just because I love it so much.

That wasn't the only bag either... there was also this super cool zippered tote! And of course, Stuart loaded it with a bunch of goodies!

I'm not sure how he fit all this stuff in there.... I think he must've used an enlargement charm on the inside of the bag.
Notice the mini-skeins? Cute hey? There's "Hufflepuff" and "Ron" from my all-time favorite dyer, Faery Fiber!
Also, take special note of the beautiful stitch markers and row counter!

Please ignore the chocolate frog, as it is gone already. Hehehe.

This has got to be the coolest Harry Potter inspired colourway that I've seen yet... It's "Knight Bus".... and it's Gorgeous! (the photo came out really dark, but it's really an amazing bright purple! Love it.

Not one, not two, but THREE different sock patterns!

And, in case knitting socks doesn't keep me busy enough, Stuart also included this super-cute felted ornaments kit. I'm totally making these this year!

My all time favorite candy from Honeydukes.... Fizzing Whizbees! The hugest package I have ever seen! Mmmmmmm.... candy.

I couldn't take a picture of EVERYTHING individually (that would be a ridiculously long post) so here's a group shot of all my aweseome loot!

And a list of everything:
House Unity Bag!
Knight Bus sock yarn
Hufflepuff & Ron mini-skeins of sock yarn
Knit Picks needles (my favorites)
Christmas ornament felting kit
Wool Wash
Stitch markers & Row counter
"K" post-it notes
3 sock patterns

Rooibos Tea
Christmas cookie cutters (I will definately be making Christmas cookies with my little house elf!)
Journal & Notepads
LUSH bath bombs (one for me, and one for my house elf) ---Mine was HoneyBee which is my FAVORITE scent from Lush.
Witchy tote bag
Curly wurly chocolate bar
Chocolate frog (nope, gone)

Awesome swap package... the House Unity bag is a great idea. Faerie Fiber is great yarn. I got some in my first swap and made my Badger Paw socks with it.
