Route 66

Hello Everyone! I got home last night to find a package had arrived from Phoenix, AZ! I was stunned to open the box and find these treasures tucked inside. My Secret Pal – Rebecca of http://www.kniftyknitter.blogspot.com/ – has been my spoiler in SP8. Rebecca, I can only say WOW! You have truly out done yourself with this box of goodies! She sent me a box that has a southwest theme – sharing with me treasures from Arizona!


The pralines, chocolates, and peanut brittle (note that it is Jalapeno flavored!!!) are from an Arizona candy maker. Mmmmmmmm, yummy – yummy!


Check out the Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in Peacock colorway! I love it!!


Her card was so perfect – she even shared with me that the Oasis Soy Silk yarn in the Canyon colorway was the colors of the sunsets. I am thinking about what lovely creation I will knit with this lovely yarn! It is so soft!


My pal knit me this lovely gift sachet! Tied with silk ribbon!! Isn’t it cute!!!! Rebecca, is this knit with soy silk?


And inside were these awesome earrings – made from felted balls!!! I LOVE THEM!!! Rebecca – you were truly an awesome secret pal to have. Please everyone, stop over and say hello to Rebecca and tell her I sent you! She lost her job this week – I know what that feels like. Rebecca – from the bottom of my heart – thank you – thank you – thank you! And, I will leave you with the words of one of my favorite songs (bet you did not know that Rebecca!) Whoooooooo – whoooooooo!

If you ever
Plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that’s the best
Get your kicks on Route 66
It winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles all the way
Hey, get your kicks on Route 66
Now you go through St. Louie
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty
Hey Janis, now you’ll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff Arizona
Don’t forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino
Won’t you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66
Now you go through St. Louie
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mighty pretty
Now you’ll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff Arizona
Don’t forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino
Won’t you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route six six
Get your kicks on Route 66
Get your kicks on Route six six
Whoo whoo ——

One thought on “Route 66

  1. I am so glad that you liked your packages! I loved spoiling you! Thanks for the kind words! No, the little pouch was not knit in soysilk, I can’t remember the name of the yarn, but I loved it when I first got it and then of course lost the tag to it. It was from Berroco I think!
    Have a great weekend. I will continue to read your blog!

    🙂

    Rebecca
