My kit! Wowza!!!

I received my kit today and!!! My spoiler, Andromeda Finch-Fletchley, took such care with the details and couldn't have put together a more perfect package.

This is the first thing I pulled out of the box.

You wouldn't believe how many awesome goodies she packed into that adorable little trunk. Take a look.

She could have just stopped there and I would have been thrilled to pieces. Here's are some more detailed photos of what was inside.
Some gorgeous stitch markers.

Some point protectors. I love them. Especially the ones shaped like socks. Notice she took care to get them in Gryffindor colors. Amazing.

Here are some more gorgeous stitch markers. I love stitch markers. How did she know!

Check out this row counter bracelet! I LOVE it!!! I have been wanting one of these so bad. I'd swear that she has been stalking me. How else could she have put together such a perfect kit!

Where my snitches at? Here they are. Lol. I have been wanting one of these snitch tape measurers too.

Can you believe she fit all that in that trunk? She must be very good with her wand.
Here are some tasty treats. I love the little tin with the knitting girl on the front. I will carry it with me everywhere. I just love that stuff. Gotta love the tic-tacs in Gryffindor colors. Told ya she took care to pay very close attention to detail. BTW...those are my absolute favorite chocolate bars. Delish! I'm giving the snake to my son. He'll love it.

Here's a close-up of the mint tin. I just love it.

Isn't this the cutest address book ever?

Here is the gorgeous yarn she sent me along with my very first Knit Picks needles. I've been wanting to try those out for awhile now.

Guess what's in this sweet little package? My first audio book title "Cast On, Bet's Off". I can't wait to listen to it.

I just love this!

How cool is this certificate!

Here are the great patterns that she sent me. Horcurx Socks, Bella's Mitts, and Gryffindor Pride Socks. I can't wait to get started!

I LOVE this bag!!!

And she lined it with some really lovely fabric too.

Coming to a Close

The school year is winding down and coming to an end. I am finding myself with a little more free time now that I don't have so much homework. I kind of miss the homework now that I don't really have any more but I am so thankful for the extra knitting time.
