A bottle in the mailbox!

Early last week I got this email:
Hi there, Barbara!
Just wanted to give you a heads up that I will be putting your bottle in the mail this evening.
But, I forgot to put the card in that tells you who I am . . . LOL . . . so, once you get your bottle, let me know and I will REVEAL ALL!!
Your whoduknit bottleswap person

A few days later I had a 2-liter bottle in my mailbox and was able to send this email:
I got my bottle in the mail today! It is really wonderful! Thank you, thank you , thank you!
(Now can I know who I am saying "Thank you " to?)
Barbara

 

Yesterday I got to learn the answer with this email:
Hi Barbara,

It is me . . . Mary Lynn . . . I am so glad you got the bottle! I didn't take pics before I sent it. It got sooooo confusing.
I hope you enjoy everything. I wanted to put lots of things in it and forgot the note . . . go figure.
Have a great day!
Mary Lynn

Now for all the wonderful stuff she sent me!
 

KnitPicks Imagination yarn, in Munchkin colorway (very pretty!), some Harmony cable needles, more Harmony needles to knit socks with (she has been paying attention to how much I like my Harmonies!), a summer sock pattern to knit, small scissors and a retractable tape measure, stitch markers and row counter bracelet (I have been wanting one of these!) from Jed Joy, a Knitter's Kit from Slipped Stitch Studios (also really cool and extra handy!), a double pointed needle case, and some Strawberry Rhubarb Soap from Smoky Mtns Apothecary.
What a wonderfully stuffed 2-liter bottle I got from Mary Lynn! Thanks again!
