I was unable to take a picture of the upopened box due to...umm.. circumstances that were... uhh.... Okay, nevermind!! Couldn't take a pic because I tore into the box like a rabid dog!! :D
First I found a lovely note:
Underneath the note was a mysterious & pretty case!
Under the case was a really cool pattern!! Actually, its 3 patterns in one! The ZigBagZ Mini Collection with patterns for a BottleZig (half liter size), SportZig (large water bottle size) and BabyZig (small purse suitable for wallet, keys & cell)!!!
Inside the case were MORE goodies!!
A skein of Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Worsted yarn (75% wool, 25% alpaca) in Bud Green and a skein of Noro Kureyon (100% wool) in Color 166. There was also a really cool, handmade button to match the yarns, which leads me to believe I would best be suited to making the BabyZig purse!! :) I could also be heard miles away exclaiming gleefully, "My book, my book!!! I really, really wanted this!!!", upon finding Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's Things I Learned from Knitting whether I wanted to or not!!!!!!!!!!! I just love the Yarn Harlot!!
Here is a closer look at the funky, cool button, too:
Thank you so much, Secret Pal!!! This is my first SP, so I'm wicked excited!!! Oh, and she has been sending me the cutest Hallmark e-cards, too! :)
