The package my pal sent to me couldn't have been better if I had been there pointing out exactly what for her to get. Check it out:
My Pal is calling herself Delia to keep her identity secret, and so far it is working. I haven't had one hint to her identity. Not even the postmark on the package had a location! The only thing I could think of when she shared her nom de plum, Delia, was the children's book character Amelia Bedelia. I loved those books when I was young. But I really don't think that it has anything to do with her. It only says something about the weird way my mind associates things.
Inside the package was a very nice note on a beautiful note card with a peony, one of my favorite flowers. There are some rubber ring stitch markers and a CHIBI darning needle set. Both are things I've wanted but didn't have. I drink tea everyday and there is a sampler of different teas for me to try out. I'll try out the first one tomorrow morning.
There are also two different kinds of dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate and I don't have to share because no one else in my house likes it. Perfect! I haven't tried either of these brands - and I can already report that the Green & Black's is very good. The picture above is very deceiving - some of that chocolate is already gone. And then of course there is the yarn. It definitely deserves it's own close-up shot.
This lovely specimen is Lorna's Laces Shepard Sport in the Sand Ridge color. I've been petting and squeezing this since I opened the package. Well, I actually did put it down when I got to the chocolate. I didn't want to spoil it with chocolate stains. Delia sent me two skeins of this and I'm very excited to try it out. I just have to figure out what to make. It would make some wonderful socks or she suggested a possible mini clapotis. That is a good idea too. And thanks to Delia, I have such a great decision to make. Thank you Delia for such a wonderful package!
