Halloween Sock Swap Surprise!

Woo Hoo.......my Halloween Sock Swap package arrived yesterday!!!

Want to know the freaky part?????

I was stalking Ravelry a week or so ago, trolling for sock patterns/yarns and ran across a sock picture, which lead me to the owner's blog.

As I was reading the sock post I saw THE MOST ADORABLE BAG.......I was in a hurry so I bookmarked her site with plans to go back when I had time to see if this is something that she sells/takes order for, etc.

SOOOOO............imagine my surprise when I opened the box and THERE WAS THE BAG!!!!

I was absolutely stunned still for a minute!!! I K.N.E.W. I hadn't contacted her.....but there the bag was...right in front of me!!! FREAKY......in the BEST kind of way!!!! LOL!!!!

Anita did an OUTSTANDING job on the bag, the socks and all the goodies!!!!!

First Up: AWESOME SOCKS!!!!!

The detail on these socks are incredible. Anita used the Crircle Rib pattern from the Knitting On The Edge Book.

I will most DEFINITELY be getting this book to add to my collection!!!!

There was a bath bomb (which was WONDERFUL........enjoyed last night)!!

A VERY cute Halloween pin which will be on my knitting bag for the holiday!

A CUTE bead bracelet in a great neutral color that will go with absolutely EVERYTHING!!

A very realistic pumpkin candle!

A teeny, tiny pair of knitting needles.......(I already have a couple of ideas on how to use these).....AND.....CANDY!!!! Specifically peanut butter bars....YUMMMM!!!
