In which I find my camera, and get yet another package.

Hello Blogging Knitting World!

Guess what I did today? I found my camera. So here is a picture-ful post for you!

Today was a good day, as I got home from work to find that I had a package! From my secret pal!

See the pretty package?

And opened it, in all it's Halloween-y goodness and thought well, I'm going to have to post about how I was all set to come home today and go running! And my secret pal ruined it so now I'm blogging and eating candy instead! Because my, do those gummy pumpkins look good!

See? Don't they look like gumdrops?

I thought they did to. But, um, they're not. They're candles. Luckily, I discovered this BEFORE I tried to bite it. Because me? Spazzy McSpazzerton? Normally? I wouldn've eaten it.

Luckily, there was sugar in the package! AND pumpkin peeps come with cake icing so you can decorate them!!!!

Plus, there's yarn! and needles! and a pattern! And excellent!

And here is the last secret pal package. Except minus the Dashboard Diva, because she's on my desk at work!

AND! Here is the final package from my last secret pal, which I think (hope!) I talked about, because, with the awesomeness, and it is also missing a trio of Burt's Bees handlotions because they're at work, where I use them multiple times a day, because as much as I love books? Very drying on the hands.

And, now we're pretty settled in here in DC. So here is my knitting area!

My overflow yarn stash!

AND LOOK! BOOKSHELVES! No more mondo-pile!

And then tonight got even better, when I went to get beer and found Tiger Beer! I've never seen Tiger in the States! TIGER TIGER TIGER!

Now, if only the Astros would win the game tonight!

Hey you!

Glad to see you're getting settled up there in DC. Also glad to see your new secret pal is treating you very very well. :-)

I got my first issue of Interweave Knits yesterday, and squeeed all over the mailbox. Husband was all embarrassed.

You're doing NaNo too? Whoooo! Looking forward to a crazy November...

Mmm...those candles look dee-lish. I totally would've licked 'em.

Good luck, fellow NaNo-er...
