allegra, who went utterly overboard and sent me one of everything you can get in boulder, colorado that's related to either tea or knitting. i got this lovely big box, and it contained so much stuff, i was just overwhelmed! i feel like i won some kind of lottery or something. i got not one, but three kinds of yarn, 4 kinds of tea, 4 different treats, and a boatload of tea accoutrements as well! WOW!!! click on the picture for more details--i added some notes with explanations of what everything is. thank you SO MUCH, allegra! you ROCK!
in other news, i mailed out my own package to my other pal today--i hope she loves it! and yes, i am still working on the pictures frome europe. i am hoping to get them up this weekend--i have a little surgery tomorrow morning, which i suspect is going to leave me good for little besides sitting with a computer on my lap all weekend. it's coming, so y'all be patient!
