My Phat Box Arrived!

It takes twelve days to get to Canada! B and I went off to the post office just to check and she came back so excited - a parcel delivery notice and the May 09 KnitPicks Catalogue were the only things in our box! Since my Phat Box was the only parcel we were expecting, she almost squeeed out of the post office. Then we picked up the parcel at the parcel pick up location and headed home.
M was not quite done homework and asked if we'd wait for him. And then we opened it all together. What excitement! There is not a thing in the box that I don't love! What an amazing bunch of artisans!
First, the Stitches - from left to right, top to bottom...

Under the Phlatties - a lovely needle case from the Phat Fiber lady! M carefully read the instructions and showed me how to use it!
In addition to all of these goodies, artisans whose goods were not in my box included discount coupons for purchases from their stores! Any Phat Fiber Box contributors are more than welcome to leave their shop's particulars in the comments. There were just too many links to make.
Wow! It feels like Christmas
