More than Foxy Sox...


Here's the package I got from my PRGE Secret Pal today.


There is a big fluffy ball of Savanna, an alpaca/linen/wool/nylon blend. (The color is more rose than in the pic.) You can also see the corner of the passion fruit & melon sachet (which made the whole box smell yummy), a pair of red (I love red!) folding scissors, a big pink tin of lip balm, and the aforementioned fuzzy socks.

There was also a fabulous purple crocheted hat, which looks uncannily like the one I have on in this photo:


Said hat came in very handy today as I had to rush out to take Mr. O'Kitten to the hospital and was having a really bad hair day. As we were running out of the house, I noticed a package on the doorstep--from my SP! He'll be in the hospital for a few days and there really was nothing better than this package to brighten what was otherwise a long and grueling afternoon and evening. (Oh, and I wore the lovely crochet cap for the entire day.)


Three skeins of Sirdar cotton indigo. Gorgeous. A pair of 100 cm/4 mm Addis (how did she know I've wanted to try Addis for the longest time?). A citrus shampoo, body wash and soap; a candy can of apple "novelty sherbet" (hmmm!) and a heart-shaped lollypop; a fun pair of heart-shaped earrings; and finally a lovely hand-made card with adorable pink stiletto heels, sequins and rhinestones on it.

I swear, I couldn't have gotten this box full of PRGE goodness on a better day. My pal is a goddess! Thank you, SP!

thx for asking about Mr. O'Kitten ~ he's okay, they just want to monitor him for a few days and try to adjust some medications he's on because he's been feeling pretty lousy for awhile.

still, hospitals are quite scary and i sure was glad i had a package to cheer me up (i opened it in the parking lot, heehee!) and a happy hat to wear...
