Its here! Its here!

I was SO excited to find the package notice in the mail - and then my camera decided it wanted to not turn on.

Grr. That is SO frustrating!

Two trips to the K-M repair center later, I have a camera back - and I have been DYING to post these photos!

This was the only one I got before the camera went cuckoo:

Everything was so pretty wrapped - but I wanted to show my knit club and ripped them right open :-)

First off, the fun stuff:

Yum! Regia and new needles!

Then the stitch markers, of which I ALWAYS need small ones. For lace, for socks, these things are the bestest!

Allitrya went above and beyond and found me a little Lucky the dalmatian from 101 Dalmatians, my favorite movie ever! She is one awesome swap partner :-)

She also got two bags of sugar-free candy for me, which, unfortunately, didn't make it to the camera shooting. Needless to say, they were very tasty chocolates and mints :-) (DH said thanks for the mints - those are his favorite)

And the grand finale......

That is the most GORGEOUS bag I have EVER seen. My entire knit club was superbly jealous and wanted to know how I had got it. I love it and am SO glad to have had Allitrya as a partner!

Catching up... first I want to say I'm really sorry to my partner that I had to get an extension.

My grandmother died, I really apologize - but Dad and I got kind of involved with it and I spent hardly any time crafting the last piece of the bag (which is a 46 inch strap).

Its almost done! I've got six inches to do and sew it on. Then its pack it up and GO! Off by owl to my charming partner.

I can't wait to see if she likes it!
