Secret Pal Presents!

My Secret Pal has struck again, and just look at how she is spoiling me:

It's not just me, either; she sent some yarn for "an indirect present for [my] niece," and some treats for Lulu the Cat as well.

Let me break it down for ya.

Four skeins of Sirdar Snuggly Chatterbox (for the niece), probably a sweater, depending on how Joon is dressing her this fall

Two skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed, for MEEE!, probably a hat

A drop spindle and some roving; it says "RARE BREED" on the package and I don't know exactly what that means. Rare sheep? Man, I don't know anything about farm animals. She also, in her note, gave me a website as a reference point for spinning, because it's possible that I might have invented a new technique that looks a lot like aborigines starting a fire.

Green & Black's Organic Chocolate ... yummm

Handmade soap from The Soap Kitchen (I do like those pun-names), cinnamon and orange scent

For Lulu, there are some little mice for her to play with, and--this is the funniest part--some catnip drops. Now, the package says, "Flavoured with catnip," so I'm guessing that the cat's supposed to eat them. MY cat, though ... when I put the treat on the ground for her to eat it, flopped over and rubbed her whole head all over it, got high, and passed out. She is not interested in eating them, but she's so funny, all writhing on the floor and purring like crazy, that I've been tossing them at her all night. These catnip treats alone have given me HOURS of entertainment.

All the gifts were wrapped up with this amazing felted bag. It's a little bucket tote, and it's sooo cute!

Thanks, Secret Pal! You totally made my day, and you made my cat very very drunk happy.
