I received my 2nd SP package this weekend! It was full of stuff to pamper myself with!

heres what I got:

- some yummy chocolate (milk chocolate covered almonds and dark chocolate covered marshmellows PLUS a cute little easter bunny!)

- pedi stuff (pumice, salt scrubs, nail implements & polish!)

- wild honey body wash and lotion!

- 2 fizzy bath balls

- 2 facial treatments & a loofah body scrubber

- Neutrogena hand cream!

- A skein of Manos del Uruguay in a pretty chocolately redish brown color

- 2 balls of Lana Grossa Binario

YAY! Thanks again BUNNY!

On another exciting note, I found a new LYS!

I was minding my own business, runnign errands and driving around fabulous LV on Saturday. My eyes were caught by a sign by the road side that said, YARN 40% OFF!

Well of course I had to stop. There I found a nice little yarn shop tucked back in the corner of a plaza that I had never been through. It was packed with knitters shopping and knitting away. I found some super nice varigated cotton ribbon yarn that caught my eye and I snatched it up! I would have loved to buy gobs more, but I am currently on a budget, getting ready for the big move.

Anyway, I cast on for the Honeymoon Cami and am making good progress. (Starsky is on the back burner for now).

I've never really knit with a varigated yarn before and I like it! I had a little pooling in the beginning, but just as I decided that I liked it as a design feature, it worked itself out. Oh well. We shall see!

What a lovely parcel, definitely san excuse to spoil yourself silly.

That yarn is gorgeous.

That yarn is so pretty, and it looks great knit up into that Cami. How cool to find a new yarn shop you never knew was there . . . and on a day when they're having a great sale too!!! It was meant to be.

Wow! That looks like a spa in a package--but even better because there's yarn in it!
