Yes indeed....She shoots....she scores !!! Today my package from our yarn swap at Knitting Help arrived! My Man (how about that...I didn't type Lonnie that time...OOPS!) went to the Post Office and returned with and even... though I wanted to rip it open, I gently opened it to find (such a nice packing job), I was then beginning to get a tad excited...I removed the bags of air (used to prevent that which is inside the package from moving about) and saw and then started getting excited !!!
I then carefully removed everything from the box, becoming more and more excited and happy I could hardly contain myself! Just look at the goodies, you would have almost too!!
Let me tell you, my pal, Sabrina scored because the girl knows me! She did a great deal of research, too! Allow me to explain....

#1. She knows I love st. markers...aren't they GORGEOUS?!

#2. She knows I've been knitting socks for My Man (check it out, I didn't type Lonnie again ) and that I had been looking for and could NOT find Regia Bamboo sock yarn AND that his socks require 3 skeins to get the length that he likes the best...and she got a masculine color! And, when That Man I Live With saw this sock yarn, he LOVED it, too!!

#3. She knew I had been wanting to knit with Hemp yarn (I did tell her about that ) and LOOK: GORGEOUS Elisebeth Lavold Hempathy...

#4. She knew that I like to knit things for and that I'm a chocolate junkie (and happened to really be jonesin' for some really good maybe 3 bars of did she know that?! ) How CUTE is that?! A book of doggie couture and doggie knitting needles and a picture of the candy bars...somebody ate some of them wonder who?!

#5. She knew that I love cards and that I really love hadnmade cards, take a look at this beauty

Sabrina, words don't seem to be enough to express my appreciation, but I would like to say from the bottom of my heart!!!
You have made me feel like the Queen Diva of Knitting after receiving all of these wonderful 's I promise, I heard when I opened the know, like in a movie, LOL! Not like "She's Crazy" for hearing things, LOL, although, there are those might say otherwise
I would like to give you and to once again say, "Thanks, you are a great pal!"

Yeah, Baby.....this is a nice boost for !!!!

All about My Baby, My Man...(let's face it, I will never get the code names down, especially when it comes to He Who Owns My Heart)...My Lonnie!
Okay, ya'll know that I spend a great deal of time in bed because of my disability and, as a result, in Feb., Lonnie surprised me with Which is run on Vista. Well, Lonnie being Lonnie has asked me about it's speed and I told him it was a tad slow so, he reads a bit on Vista and discovers that, ideally, it should have more RAM than that which was with the computer. Well, today he comes in with a GIG OF RAM!!! I now have more ram on the laptop than we have on our home computer which is an amazing system! Needless to say, Little One is zipping along all over the place! I am now forcing myself to leave her alone so I can get a bit of my knitting done so that I can then work on his socks! But...tonight...this Spoiled Knitter will do some blog checking!!!!!!! Once again...a huge surprise from Lonnie. LOL, I think I am going to do as I am with my 2007 FOs, begin to # the surprises! LOL, I can pretty much guarantee you that there would be far more surprises than FO's in '07! I have the best husband in the world!!!!!! Again, not because he spoils me (although, that is a nice perk) but because he has a huge heart and is, well....Lonnie! Who, as I type is taking he Mom out to eat and on home after she has spent the weekend with us, which she does every weekend and he spends every Sat. taking her out and about to run errands and just spend mother/son time together....I could go on and on with the list of his wonderful features! He is one of a kind and I am VERY BLESSED to have him as my husband....ain't no doubt
