Whew...What a Trip

Well I've safely made it back from Italy. My bottom was quite tired and sore from the long trip on my broomstick, but it was well worth it. I completed my muggle marathon, was one of the last few people to finish, but I finished it and that's all that matters. And when I got back to Hogwarts a few days ago, look at what was waiting for me:


An owl had come for me while I was gone, delivering my swap package from my partner. I quickly opened it up and found inside...


There were all sorts of great goodies in there: 2 patterns (including one for a toe-up sock I've been wanting to try), 2 skeins Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Flame (one of my favoritest sock yarns), some beautiful handmade stitch markers, a set of KnitPicks Harmony Wood DPNs, some Bertie Botts Beans and various other types of goodies :-). And it all came in a French Market Bag. Thanks so much Ferula, it was a great suprise to come home to and I absolutely love it!
