I arrived home just before 8 tonight to find a lovely surprise — my Hot Socks box from Evelyn!

Evelyn happens to live across town from me and runs the blog devoted to all things knitting in the D.C. area — D.C. Knitting in the City.

Look what she sent me:

Hot Socks swag

Rainbow-hued Regia Stretch Color, tiny KnitPicks in US0, and Zhena’s Gypsy Tea! The tea is organic, fair-trade raspberry Earl Grey and delicious.

knitting, mug, and sock

I know it’s delicious because I made myself some to drink out of the delightful fall-themed mug Evelyn included in my package. Also in the picture you will see my current knitting (the shawl) and the first pair of socks I ever knit (also made from Regia yarn).

Posey in a box

And a considerate pal never forgets the felines. Look — she sent them a box! Posey is modeling how it’s a perfect fit. Jeremiah has taste-tested it and agrees it’s a fine vintage. And Della kneaded the tissue paper to make sure it was nice and fluffy. We have three very content cats tonight!

Thanks, Evelyn, for being a terrific pal. And, thanks, Laura, for being a good host. And, Chrissie, your box will be in the mail this week!
