Final Package OSSP

Well it's been fun with the Interweave Press One Skin Secret Pal over the summer. Sad to see it come to an end.. I had so much fun with my downline SP Leslie (whose blogless) and my upline Jane(also blogless) whose been so much fun. I love her packages! She lives in KS and works at a LYS too! She's been so thoughtful and spoiling me all summer, first with the skein of Plymouth Yarn Posh, ohh so soft and I've never seen or heard of it, great introduction and even an awesome suggestion of using it to make a cowl, along with her small felted box which has been getting lots of use. Then her second package that not only included a skein of STR yarn but also their sock book too!!! Truly very generous & amazing and she seems to know me so well, when her package arrived at my door I was actually checking out with BMFA shopping cart for the book,she must be a mind reader or something. Everything all individually wrapped in different color tissue paper.. So much fun opening her packages...
Now she's finally reveals herself with this large sized box of goodies from KS!

this is everything, sock yarn, cable footies, KS BBQ sauce regular & spicy, honey roasted sunflower nuts, stick notes, book mark on the back "Common Sunflower This handy annual can reach 12-25 feet in height, crowned with a flower up to 18 inches across. The state flower of Kansas, the common sunflower is native to the western prairies of North America. The sunflower blooms from June to September and it's flowers track the sun from east to west daily." beautifully made stitch markers in tin, handmade soap, lemon tea cookies and sunflower nut shaped chocolate pieces.

here's goodies from Kansas

Really neat stitch markers and not heavy at all.

the cable footies from the One Skein Book love the shade but not sure the yarn? Maybe LL?

ohhh the Austermann Step sock yarn with aloe/jojoba oil, great colorway too I just signed up for Greys KAL yesterday before her package arrived..

How bizarre was wondering what I was going to make for the KAL and in grey too..I hoep this will work for a grey.. I think so.. Perfectly!
and she kid the lavender soap in-betweenthe label & yarn..
Wish I could smell....
had another check up this morning with the DR and my nose is till full of scabs, crust, blood, etc. Slowly healing and he could see some clearing...YEAH

GREAT PACKAGE JANE! Lovely items Thank you you've been so much fun! Hope your SP has been as good to you! Keep in touch!
