National Book Festival and SP 11!!

This weekend I made my first trip down to the National Book Festival which is held in the National Mall. My gf Lorraine and I have been trying to get down here for the past three years or so and for one reason or another we never made it. This year we finally did!! And it was a perfect day. Sunny, 75 degrees, cool breezes, just perfect. But it was damn crowded... *like the National Mall isn't normally crowded on a weekend, what was I thinking.... apparently I wasn't*
My creation

As if the day couldn't have been better I came home to find this nice little package at my door! *squeal! I love unexpected packages!*

SP 11

SP 11 - gift

It was a package from my Secret Pal!! And just look at all the goodies that were in there! My absolute favorite chocolate *second only to Italian chocolate torrone that you can only get from Italy* Adorable fun pen that goes perfectly with the little knitting notebook *well that notebook is in my knitting bag for corrections and what nots, so yes, it's a knitting notebook* and cute sticky notes! And of course, I just squealed like a little girl when I saw the Handmaiden SeaSilk!!

I'm so jealous of the Sea silk and even more sad that I missed the book day in DC. Why haven't I ever heard of that? Bummer.

Yeah for Goodies! Tell me how the Sea Silk knits up. I think I need to investigate and see what all the hype is about. I have never even touched the stuff yet. What is a Book Day ? I have never even heard of it.
