I have no words!

(Actually I do have some at first, but later on I'll start to stammer and repeat myself.)

Two days ago I got a secret e-mail, telling me that I would get my Vegan Pal 2 swap package the next day (so that's yesterday!). Usually UPS stuff arrives at around 2-3 p.m. I was here, I was waiting, nothing happend. At around 4 I didn't really believe that it would still arrive. At 5.15 I called Johanna, who had asked me to inform her the minute I got my package, that we could give it up for the day. At 6.30 my package arrived. I swear never ever has UPS delivered something this late to our place. It's like they did this on purpose...

Anyway, I settled down with my package in the living room and dicovered that my package came from the UK, from YowlYY aka Bunnies, needles and books to be excact! I carefully opened it up. I was oohing and aahing the whole time. I got out all of the things you can see here. (No, not the cat!)

See the package in the middle? That's not wrapping paper, that's a beautiful piece of fabric! Of course I had to take a picture of everything right then, even though the lighting was bad.
Mücke came to inspect right away...

Inside that package were the magic yarn balls (yes, you heard that right, there were more than one!) and inside the magic yarn balls were two (!) sets of stitch markes, some luxury chocolate and another (!) crochet hook. See it all?

YowlYY really put together the most amazing package ever. I'm so so happy! I can't tell you how much I like EVERYTHING!

Here are the yarns and the crochet hooks for better viewing:
I got two balls of the amazing 100% organic Pakucho cotton in "Brown Cafe" and "Brown Dark" and two stunningly beautiful wooden crochet hooks.

Like that wasn't already enough I also got a ball of NORO Ganpi abaka surabu:
I didn't know at first that it was Ganpi abaka, but this yarn felt so special when I was winding it into a ball. Isn't this the most gorgeous yarn ever? I think I'll make a very nice summer scarf out of this...

Here is a close-up of the two stitch marker sets:

And let's end this post with some very yummy stuff:

The Falafel Mix has already been turned into this:
So very delicious.
Now I'm off to give the Cream of Lentil Soup (YowlYY's included recipe) a try!

Thank you so much, YowlYY! The package you put together was more than perfect. I still can't believe how you managed to meet my taste with every single thing you picked out. Fabulous!
I was so so lucky with this swap. I couldn't be happier to have gotten you and Chan as my pals. You guys are awesome!
