Belated Tea Swap Post!

Friday I received this wonderful package from Amie, my Knitters Tea Swap pal!

Look at all the great loot she sent! There are two kinds of yarn, including one she spun (in a Mama-E colorway named Amie!) herself (the pink), and some Inspirations Yarn in the Espresso colorway. And, there were cute stitchmarkers (on the pink yarn), great cards, and a nifty purse that it took Dave, Heidi, and I to get properly assembled. Of course there was also tea - several black varieties including a Darjeeling that I'm particularly excited about and one fairly strong earthy smelling tea that frightens me a bit but which I will certainly try. And there was a book, by Edward Gorey, who I really like (how could she know?), and a striped bag full of saltwater taffy straight from Ocean City. I love saltwater taffy - it's almost gone already! Not easy to photograph, pardon the blurriness...Thank you Amie, I really love everything you sent, and it's been fun getting to know you! Sorry this post was a bit tardy but I had a friend in town for the weekend - more about that later!

I'm glad you like it! I was starting to get worried it hadn't gotten there! Hope you enjoy the Haunted Tea Cozy, and that the saltwater taffy was good (it was tough to pack it up and ship it off to someone else - I love it too!)
