Swap Package, part 2
Ok, now that I've gotten errands out of the way, I finally have time to open my package!!!!!!!! I brought the box down into my dining room for proper lighting. Suzie, my older cat was being nosy (plus she follows me everywhere) and came over to see what I was doing.

The package :3

When I opened it, I was amazed! Angelina must have used some shrinking charms to fit everything inside!

Look at all of my goodies!!!

The first thing I pulled out of the package was a lovely letter from Angelina telling me what was inside my pacakge and two sock patterns!

Then I unwrapped these gorgeous bamboo needles! Straights AND DPNs!

Next I found these Pumpkin candles from Yankee Candle Co. (which I love) and Oh. My. God. they smell SO good!!!

When I opened the next two packages, I squee'd with delight! Not one, not two, not even three - 4 skeins of yarn!!!!!! The green chunky weight alpaca one feels amazing, like clouds! And the sock yarns are GORGEOUS!

Then I found out I got CANDY!!! I'm a huge sweet tooth, so this is a major plus. I've never heard of the company that made the chocolate bar, but I'm saving the wrapper since it's so pretty! The jellybean nerds are very very tasty, and are actually already gone... I opened up the gummy bears, too, since Hairbo Gold-bears are the BEST gummy bears ever!!!!

Angelina even gave me things for my pets!! I can already say that my dogs are very pleased with the treats and they were happy to steal the toys away from the cats, they were going nuts over the toys while we ate dinner XD. And the cats were happy to play with the scrap yarn from the wrapping and they loved their treats!

And then I was down to one package left to open. It is by far the best part of the package! It's soft and fluffy, and it SMELLS GOOD!! Angelina, did you spray it with perfume? The design is beautiful and the color pattern is amazing!!! It's a beautiful reversible cabled scarf!! I LOVE IT THANK YOU SO MUCH ANGELINA!!!

Suzy decided to play with the scrap yarn and lay on top of everything!

Here's the aftermath, haha:
