Coffee Goodness and an amazing scarf

Hello everyone - while I cannot post a photo (I cannot find the camera cord!!) I wanted to thank Carin for the wonderful goodies she sent me! It was an awesome box of goodies! Starting with some Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in a yummy coffee blend of colors, some yummy Chocolate Cherry Walnut biscotti, some delicious Rocky Road Fudge, some awesome coffee - Demon - roasted locally in New Hampshire where Carin lives - wow is it amazingly good! She topped off my package with some much needed "knitters" post it notes entitled - "socks, socks, socks". Quite appropriate! Carin, thank you so much for the yummy goodies! You were a great swap partner!

I also wanted to post photos from the ISE2, but as I said earlier - I have no clue where the cord to the camera is! Too much Christmas clean up!!
I received such an awesome scarf package from Nancy - she knit a gorgeous scarf out of Alpaca - wow, I am impressed! I also got 2 skeins of Noro Kuryeon - my favorite! Thanks, Nancy for the lovely goodies!

It has been a hectic time here at the homestead - I am behind on so many things! Work has been very busy, this is a good thing, but I could use a little respite! I am vowed to finish my Christmas shopping this weekend - I need to finish up the stocking stuffers. I have one mitten left to knit - so I am confident that my holiday knitting will be complete. I also seem to have come down with some kind of bug - I am tired all the time, my nose is drippy and my throat is a bit scratchy! I am eating Vitamin C's and working on trying to get some rest! Hope you are all doing well as Advent winds down and we await Christmas.

Have a great week all.

It sounds like you are as frazzled as I am! Luckily some good stuff is headed your way...

Thanks for the note. My family is sending you Merry Christmas wishes as well!

That last comment was from your Secret Pal, by the way. I'm losing my mind in the holiday season... :)
