Can't Owls Carry A Lot?

My HSKS 4 Swap Package arrived yesterday, I took photos and everything but we had a power cut in the afternoon and after that my computer just refused to recognise the camera was waiting to download. After several re-boots this morning, it is now OK and I can present to you my fantastic parcel from Millicent Brocklehurst!

Here it is in the box......

And here is what was inside the box - that box was like the Tardis - it held an amazing amount!

Two Sock Bug Sock Patterns, A set of Harmony DPNs, Stitch Markers, Fleece Artist Merino Sock Yarn, Tazo Tea, Stitch Holder, Post It notes, Jelly Beans and Dark Chocolate. What a lucky girl I am. And just look at that fantastic bag - very strong and exactly the right size for a Sock Project. Millicent has been very clever indeed, she's a typical Ravenclaw.

Here's a close-up of the stitch markers, handmade and from Etsy - the first thing I have ever had from Etsy, aren't they lovely?
And here's a close up of the yarn - blue and bronze, perfect! My first ever Merino and first ever Fleece Artist yarn. I'm looking forward to trying it but it will have to wait - I am test knitting the updated pattern for Sydney Socks and have a Master Coriolis on two circulars to finish first!
Here's a close-up of my lovely new bag. I haven't seen this pattern before so I'm off to Ravelry to find out what it is.
Thanks again CentyB - 100 House Points to you.....
