great knitting mail

Canada Post is still working out a bit of a backlog from the recent postal strike (I'm still getting my People magazines 2 or 3 at a time... Yes, I read People magazine - it's a small vice I have...), but the other day, CP brought me TWO knitting related pieces of mail!
One was some wool I won from Rue of Tinks and Frogs (go check her blog - seriously one of the cutest babies ever, and the Tadpole has a true appreciation for wool, especially the handspun stuff)
This is a skein of Essence by the Woolen Rabbit, in the Oakmoss colourway. Truly beautiful - thanks so much for pulling my name, Rue! I am keeping this for me - I see a great squooshy scarf (probably triangular) for the winter.

Next up - Robyn of Knit and Purl Mama sent me these:

Decals! One of these is going on my car - I just can't decide between Knit Girl and Knitting Nerd - The Nerd kinda resembles me (the glasses...) and I am kinda nerdy about knitting...
The rest will be put aside for giveaways and such.

Thanks Rue and Robyn! These really made my day!

Glad you got the decals safely! Canada Post issued a statement that they are back on track with mail delivery - you're finding they're not?
