I NEVER win stuff, but I won 2 different contests in just a few weeks. Totally randomly. how crazy is that? I won this AWESOME (and much-needed) DPN holder from the coffee and knitting swap. I LOVE it! And I won a book of my choice from the Charmed Knits kal - of course I chose "Charmed Knits" and it's LOVELY! I highly recommend you get it, if you're a knitter who likes harry potter. CUTE stuff!

I am SUCH a bad coffeswap partner! My fabulous coffeswap Pal (who happens to be running the swap!) sent me the most amazing package and it has taken me over a week to post about it. I'm so sorry Knittymama!!!

ANYWAY, here is the mostest awesome package I got!!! Peace Coffee - Birchwood Cafe blend, and a cool Birchwood Cafe mug too (which I am drinking out of right now - I love the old-fashioned look and feel of it!). Some AMAZING yarn she got from her local fiber festival....Araucania Nature Wool Chunky in a gorgeous bright green, and some wonderful handspun romney/corriedale from Misty Meadow Designs ...Im trying to decide what to make with them...I think some stripey mittens and a matching hat might be in order! And last but not least, a cute handmade project bag she sewed herself (!!!) filled with yummy fair trade/organic chocolates and some locally made caramels!!! Thank you coffeswap pal, you ROCK!!!! :)
