Tag! (Hey, What's in the Box???)

Hey, y'all, guess what!?!?! I got a package today! Wanna see?
Hmmm, a priority mail box with the words "Sweet Sixteen" on it. Whatever could be inside???

I'm it! I just got the box out of my mailbox about 30 minutes ago! In the package we have peaches n creme in faded denim and shades of green, a recipe for shortbread (yum!), two adorable cookie cutters, and, of course a dishcloth! There's also an instruction page in there. I can't wait to get started!

On a more somber note, I am going to be late sending my sockapalooza socks out. After I finished them I put them away in a spot I thought was safe. I took them out to give them a little soak and block before their journey when lo and behold:

Eeeeeek! A hole! On the sole just after the heel!!!!!

I had no other choice but to rip the sock to the heel and repair. I'm almost done, I'll finish it tonight, block it, and then knit my dishrag for the tag.

P.S. Sweet sixteen members, that box up there looks rather plain. Please help to spice it up a little when it gets to your house! As long as the postal people can see the priority label and the mailing label, we are golden!

I don't think I will ever get over the thrill of seeing something that was in my house show up at someone else's. It's one of my favorite things about swaps.

Hey, Janine, I got your email. I am ready, willing, and extremely impatient to get started!

I got the box today and have already mailed it to the next person. The dishcloth you knit was great. And thanks for the adorable magnet!
