My swap package is here!!

I opened my package to find 7 friendly little snakes waiting for me!

Then they all came out to meet me.

But then as I unpacked more stuffing, there was an 8th straggler, he says hello to everyone.

The snakes helped me unpack all of the packages so carefully wrapped by Ms. Agatha Vablatsky.

the snakes then introduced me to all of their friends who had been sleeping in the package. There were 2 stuffed snakes, one gummy snake and a little green snake (not pictured) that was already playing with the kitty cats. He wiggles so the cats will chase him! Oh, and the wooden slithering snake.

Then I got to unwrap the soft yummy sock yarn! It is knitpicks essentials in "Ivy". It is a gorgeous green with slight variations, because it is kettle dyed. :)

Here is the bias knit Slytherin scarf. Also, the little cat toy snakey sneaked into this picture!

I then unwrapped this amazing Golden Snitch tape measure. Unfortunately for me it was the only snitch I 'caught' this semester!

I got a set of my favorite knitting needles: Knitpicks harmony DPN!!
There is also a notebook full of snake sock patterns for my knitting enjoyment.

And last but not least, the AMAZING bag! I can't say enough about this bag. It is the design Minee came up with, I beleive it is called Nagini's Dream? It is so wonderful! I have two pictures of it here, I hope they can do it a fraction of the justice it deserves!

Agatha, I can't thank you enough for what you did for me. It was an absolutely amazing package! I do have to show one more picture (I know there are a lot of them) but Princess Fiona enjoyed the 8 mini snakes that accompanied my package. Thank you so much!
