Some Bunny's (mail) Love

Wowza, I received the most amazing package in the mail this week! I was completely spoiled by my Knitters Tea Swap 3 partner, Kimberly of Some Bunny's Love. There were so many boxes and bundles in the huge package that I could barely keep track of it all...

First, the yarn...a skein of beautiful hand-dyed green-blue sock yarn, two skeins of blue denim cotton/wool, and two skeins of Paton's Classic Wool in such a pretty pink/red/brown colorway...and an autographed copy of the Yarn Harlot's new book!

Then, the tea...four different kinds of lovely-smelling tea from local tea shops in Rhode Island...and an ingenious travel tea tumbler, just what I've been wanting!

Then, the treats...coffee syrup, almond cinnamon thins, garlic peanuts, ginger candies, chocolate truffles, lavender cookies...and two delicious-smelling candles...ginger pear and blood orange...yum!

But wait, there's more! She knew that I like to bake and sent a sugar shaker, measuring cup, and an assortment of vintage tins...lobster (or crayfish?) and little lamb shapes, so cute!

Kitchen goodies

But wait, there's still more! Kimberly also sent a stuffed toy for Arrow...and a teapot jigsaw puzzle. A puzzle! Dan loves puzzles! How could she have known this?

But wait, there's more! Can you believe it? Tucked inside the package were custom, handmade stitch markers of beagles. Beagle stitch markers. They are so delicately made, so thoughtful, I was completely beside myself as I unwrapped each one. They even have pawprints. Pawprints!

And to go with the stitch markers, she sent a pair of handmade knitting needles. Doggie knitting needles! Needless to say, I love them.

Thank you so much, Kimberly. I can't even imagine the time, thought, and effort you put into assembling this wonderful package of goodies. I am so touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity. And hugs to the bunnies!
