hat attack (not really)

I sent off my Ravelry hat exchange stuff today. I always fear that my recipient will be disappointed... sigh. I also didn't want to go overboard with the "extras" simply because I don't know anything about the girl I knit for. Not really.

So this is what was included:
- Two hats (the 3-spiral hat in white and a Gretel in pink)
-Packet of Peeps. Just because.
-PAAS Easter egg dye. My recipient has done Kool-Aid dyeing in the past, so you know, here I'm sticking with a seasonal theme...
-LaraBar in Cocoa Mole: representin' for the 5280. It's my favorite flavor.
-Tiny packet of soak and a wee plastic lamb (Wool... Easter...)
-Crazy press-on nails and body glitter from the dollar bin at Target. I happen to know who Julie's "naughty exchange" (which I didn't participate in) knitter is and the body glitter and press-on nails might come in handy.

And now I wait for my hat to arrive. I fear receiving something knit in craft store acrylic. I know this is terribly snobby of me... the idea that anyone would take time to knit anything for a stranger is a good thing, but we had months to get this together so I'm hoping for a nice hat. Or nice yarn if the hat isn't so nice. I'm an awful person.

Let's not say, "awful," shall we? Let's say... optimisitic. Hopeful. Eager.

You're right. I'm hopeful that my knitter didn't send me an awful acrylic hat. :-)
