Good Mail from my new Secret Pal

What did I find on my doorstep today, but a package from my SP11 pal!

I love getting Good Mail, and I always have fun opening these packages. Wouldn’t you?

Look what I was lucky to receive tonight! Craft Magazine, a ‘zine that looks right up my alley with it’s jack-of-all-trades melange of arts, crafts, and cobbling; some chocolate (always appreciated! I think that the frequent inclusion of chocolate treats helps Dru stay cool with my blog-swap addiction!); a Numi tea sample pack in a pretty bamboo box; and a skein of lovely Misti Alpaca worsted-weight in a beautiful autumnal hand-dye!

Now, whatever shall I make from this? A new scarf for fall? Some fingerless mitts? What would you knit?
