Straight from the Land of Oz

Guess what I got?

I received the blanket (and extra goodies) yesterday, but didn't have a chance to get a photo until today. Unfortunately, the weather knew what I was going to try, so it got all overcast and made the pic a bit flashy...

Everything Abe-hap sent:
  • the blanket, looking good (of course ;D)
  • a skein of gorgeous virgin "new" wool (I never understand this term) that's self-striping and soo soft
  • a Fiber Trends lace scarf pattern, written by Eugene Beugler (Eugenians will have to laugh with me at the smallness of the world) - he's a local lace knitter we all know!
  • an assortment of various Aussie candies (tragically, the koala and frog are no more, for I was hungry and they were yummy)
  • a small Australian flag
  • and, inside the card, a spinning wheel stitch marker and platypus...
... coin ;D

Hehe. I'm kinda glad that she didn't send a real platypus, those things have a nasty sting. And Customs woulda freaked out. Though, I doubt a wombat would have made it through, either.

Thank you so much, Abe-hap!

Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to add, and what I'm gonna send to Penny.

What a great package! I can't believe the pattern, that's too funny.

Can't wait to see this baby's new addition and travels.
