Thank you Carla G, my Vegan Pal!

Well, I'm back from my trip and felt bad that my poor Vegan Pal must think I was an ungrateful wench for not thanking her for my package! Luckily I was thoughtful enough to post a blog explaining my whereabouts and thankfully, she looked there!

So I got my Vegan Pal package and it was super! Included was a knitting magazine with some very cool stuff inside, a couple of bookmarks (which is great because I've been using a receipt in the current book I'm reading), some incense which made for a delightfully scented package and some chocolate for the vegan food component! Mmmm. I never said, but my favourite chocolates are usually choc mint and choc orange and Carla guessed it because they were included! Here they are in the picture, before the choc mint met it's untimely end (in my belly.)

And then for the handmade piece! Carla made me TIKI knitting needles! I was beside myself! I didn't make a mention of my love of tikis, but she picked up on it from my profile and made me wonderful tiki head knitting needles! I just adore them and even my husband is admiring them. I thought they were a size 6 or 7, and thankfully I bought a needle gauge for myself while I was out getting stuff for my Vegan Pal. I was glad to be able to use it! They are a size 6. :D They came in an adorable pouch with beads and another small tiki hanging from it.

To see what I gave my Vegan Pal, also named Carla, click on Pink Vegan's blog entry about what she got from me.

Message to my Vegan Pal

Hey there Vegan Pal,

Just wanted to let you know that if you don't here anything from me about receiving your package, it's beacause I am on vacation and wont be back until Christmas Day! So, I guess I'll pick it up on the next post office day after that. I'm looking forward to it! Just don't think I am ungrateful! I just wont see it for a while.

Thanks in advance!

I'm in Dublin right now. I went to Newgrange today, a 5200 year old neolithic monument!

Onward to Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton, London and Venice!
