An Early Surprise

Monday is normally a boring day for me.

But yesterday it is indeed one happy one for me. Guess what a surprise I got yesterday. Its a an early birthday and xmas package from Vanessa. Here's what she got me.

She knew that I wanted to try felting and she is so kind to get me some wool for a tote. She even got me some nice fabric for lining. The colour of the yarn was my ideal colour too, its call pearl gray. I hope I can find some time soon to knit it up.

Did you see there is something wrap up in that tissue wrapper? I can't believe it when I unwrapped it. Its a luxury skein of the Handmaiden Seasilk I've been longing to have for quite sometime. It is even the in shade that I'm planning to get it earlier.

Oh Van, thank you so much. This is my first birthday present and I'm going to treasure it a lot.

You are my angel.

For Martha, maybe you could shorten the sleeves? (though, not sure if your design is already a short sleeve).
