Whoduknit Holiday Swap

I received the most amazing package from my Whoduknit Holiday Swap SP, Patty. Patty and I have been friends since I was her upstream SP in a KTC book swap and we e-mail often. Little did I suspect that she was my SP in this swap - very sneak Patty! I don't even know where to start! First there were 5 books! The Christmas Thief by Mary and Carol Higgins Clark, Chill Before Serving by Cynthia Lawrence, Shakespeare's landlord by Charlaine Harris, Blind Side by Penny Warner and The Trouble with Magic by Madelyn Alt. I have not read any of these books, and can't wait to read them! Then there were a bunch of post cards from Florida, where she lives, a beautiful crocheted star (I had admired her stars when I saw them on her blog) an adorable picture frame ornament and cute toothpick holder, and just look at these beautiful stich markers - don't you just love the one with the snowman! (well - blogger has decided not to let me load the picture of the stitch markers for some reason, but trust me they are beautiful and I'll try to post a picture later) And last, but certainly not least, the most beautiful Koigu yarn and the pattern for a Koigo neck shawl from Patternworks that I have been admiring for weeks (how she knew I have no idea!). The box was also filled with candy and hot chocolate packages.
I am really overwhelmed with her generosity (and sneakiness LOL). This was way over the top for the swap, and she explained that was because it was also a Christmas and birthday present. Thank you so much Patty - you really pulled one over on me, and it was a lovely surprise!

I hate it when blogger does that!

Nice package! I love the color of your new yarn.
