Thank You, Debi!

It's been a busy two weeks full of technical issues at home, so I must apologize for this post being so late. I've been itching to post about my ISE4 package from Debi, the bestest scarf pal ever!!! Behold:
My jaw dropped when I received it last Friday. I bow to the queen of package wrapping! Ok, I'm no Martha Stewart, but I thought I could hold my own in gift wrapping. Faced with handmade papers and ribbons galore, I must admit: I am so not worthy! The doggie (you can see a bit of him in the background) and I had a great time unwrapping each and every one.
First of all, the scarf:
Isn't it lovely? The color is totally me, and so is the lace and cable pattern. I absolutely love it! Then, there was an amazing handmade card (with a baby version of my scarf no less lol!) and lots of beautiful calligraphy.
Check out the lacy handknit bookmarks to go with four (!) knitting books:

The copy of Friday Night Knitting Club is autographed too. How cool is that?! Then there were turtles galore:
and a stylish Knitpicks KIP bag:
Can never be without a good knitting bag, can I? And this one's really nicely designed too, with handy pockets and a nice long shoulder strap. Oh yes, and there was yarn!
Three luscious skeins of Art Yarns Ultramerino and Louisa Harding alpaca. Along with these fabulous treats for the eyes are some treats for the ears: 4 CDs of some of my favorite musicians to keep me entertained!

Thank you, thank you, thank you sooooo much, Debi! I love everything! You've been such an awesome scarf pal. I hope that you get the ISE scarf of your dreams too :)

Wow Mia! What a fabulous package! And yes, as a former recipient of SP gifts FROM you, rest assured that you definitely hold your own in the gift wrapping and gifts department - the packages you've sent were absolutely fabulous! I'm so glad that someone is spoiling you like you spoiled me in the past!
