Happy Valentines Day

The Sgt and I have never been big on the day as a holiday for swapping gifts. It is a day for us, but not for flowers, candy and such. We normally spend it watching TV, but this year we will spend it getting stuff sorted to go into the shed or out to the garbage on Monday (whoop), maybe a movie later, but this NEEDS to be done.

However, I do like to be spoiled and I love spoiling others, so this year, like last year, I joined the Ravelry Valentines Day Swap.
Atomic on Ravelry completely spoiled me:
Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns
3 skeins of Malabrigo worsted in Charrua
3 skeins of Digit Fingering in Blush
2 skeins of Koigu KPPPM in blues
4 oz Merino Top in Multi Cranberry
A frog the kisses
A chocolate frog with gummy bugs inside
Harney & Sons Green tea with coconut, ginger and vanilla
Citrus coconut travel set
A journal and recipe card set
2 soak trials in Flora and scentless
an orange clove candle
A bar of lemon Verbena soap
2 pins for my knitting bag " Yes I made it" and " Yarn Diva"
and a wonderful Valentines card
I asked..she said she hit a lot of sales.
Thank you so much Rosie, you are wonderful.
oh, she hosts a podcast you might want to check out, Atomic Knits on iTunes.
