2nd SP Package!

Yesterday I was at home all day and only went out in the evening. And to my surprise I found a note for me from the post office saying that there was a parcel for me. The suspense was killing me as I could only pick it up the next day (which was today). I wasn't expecting a package from my SP at all. But it indeed was from her!

The package was sent out 19th of December last year! Oh gosh you can't imagine what the box had gone thru...By the time I got it, it was literally bandaged again and again just barely surviving the journey all the way to Malaysia. I don't know if there was a mix up in the post causing its delay.


You poor poor thing protected the goodies inside all this time

After I got it I was reeeeallly curious as to what was waiting for me! But since the box was completely taped from all angles I had to wait till I reached home...

And taaa daaaa......

Yessss I got 4 balls of Regia sock yarn!! My first ever set of sock yarns! Yarns that are actually meant for socks! I can finally knit socks! I.can.finally.knit socks.

*takes a deep breath*

Okay so where was I...Yes sock yarns.

Two of them are Regia Silk Color which is 55% merino wool, 20% silk and 25% polyamide..SO soft! And the other two are Regia Bamboo Color - 45% Bamboo, 40% Merino wool and 15% polyamide. Correct me if i'm wrong here, but is the yarn made out of bamboo??? Like bamboo as in the tree?? But but how on earth is it sooo soft!!!

Here's a close up of the yarn......

I also got a set of 3mm dpns, Rose scented shower gel, candle. There was an unfortunate incident though, The potpurri stuff that you see was actually in a bag but the side of the plastic bag was torn and it was all over the box lol! No wonder the box jingled when I got it haha!

I'm gonna knit socks soon! I'm gonna knit socks soon......Socks...Socks....sSsSocks!

Thanks a lot for the wonderful package SP!!!!

Oh, what a wonderful gift. I love the sock yarn you received. (And the photo of the spilled potpourri looks like an intentional "artistic" shot!) I can't believe all the stuff that package went through and you still received it. We've had several packages mailed to Malaysia in the past years that never made their final destination. :-( I'm so happy that yours found its way to its new home.
