Me too. Love presents for ME. It is a wonder the UPS fellow, really nice and considerate, and the mail carrier, well not so friendly, don't wear Santa clothing all year long......Gotta get the economy going.:teehee:

thats awesome. The first package is always so exciting... but then so is every package afterwards. I received two packages yesterday myself, both knitpicks, one package of 4 balls of shine sport (in grass) and another package of blocking wires.

I was so excited I had my lace scarf on the bed blocking within the hour. haha.

Sounds like you have lots of goodies to enjoy today!

I just LOVE getting packages! It's so fun and exciting. It's a wonder I don't have more projects going at once, because I always want to start RIGHT NOW!!!

OOoo are you going to post pictures?!

I should be getting a box from KP myself any day now, and I'm just dying with the impatience! I'm getting my first order of lace yarn and starting my first lace project ever. I can't WAIT! I'm not so anxious to have to wind all those hanks into balls by hand, though.

Um do I have to have blocking wires for lace? I was just thinking of using straight pins on a bed when I'm done to block it. I keep seeing all this talk of blocking wires though. Yikes!
