Holy frijoles!

Boy, my (now not so Secret) pal, Lisa, really likes to go out with a bang! I'm still in shock over all the stuff she sent for my final package:

Last, but certainly not least!

There was also a tin of tea, but it didn't make the picture because I put it away after showing it off to Mike ('here, take a whiff of this - doesn't it smell good?!'). It was spiced apple cider tea. Mmmmm....

Okay, so here's the funny thing about this package:
1). I've been itching to do one last felting project before it really warms up, and I've been wanting this exact pattern for the Oregon tote, but never got around to it. Problem solved!
2). I've been curious about Lion Brand's Landscapes yarn, especially how it will felt, after seeing the Felted Pullover pattern in the Winter 2004 issue of Interweave Knits. Problem solved!
3). I've been hearing a lot of chatter about the kettle-dyed, handpainted yarns from Uruguay. I was about to place an order, but I think I got distracted because it never happened. Problem solved!
4). I've somehow lost about half of my stitch markers. The pretty ones at my LYS sell for $18/pair. Problem solved!
5). What girl doesn't love an endless supply of tea, soaps, candles, and lippy stuff?
Yeah, that last one isn't really a "problem". I just had to make it known that all this stuff is really yummy, and really appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lisa. You're awesome!
