Happiness is....and a Giveaway!!

Totoro...

My hair stylist is from Japan and when she flies home there is a Totoro shop in or near the airport. She brought me the nicest gift box with Totoro hand towels, a cell phone bag plushie, and small key chain and the cutest mug!



Peanut blossoms...
I was stashing peanut butter for a while and I'm finally down to the last bottle. The kisses were left over from Halloween. Surprisingly I have never made this classic from Hersheys. I used my convection oven and they turned out yummy even with the extra chunky peanut butter. I bet they don't last long.


Noro SG 47...
My shop therapy from Little Knits has come! What a deal for $5.40/skein. I think Kim is thinking about another Clapotis with hers. I'm not sure, but I'm wondering how it will look in a chevron pattern or Old Shale. Perhaps even this lace-knitting-impaired Hawaiian can knit Old Shale?

Sales in the shop! Thank you everyone for the support!

and of course, GREAT PEOPLE!

I have so much to be thankful for! I'm going to have a giveaway. I don't know what I'm going to giveaway yet, but hey, it's free and knitting related! Leave a comment before midnight, November 23, Hawaiian time and on November 24 I will pick name or two.

Old shale is pretty. I welcome the new Noro to Nuuanu. A store dedicated to Master Totoro?! Don't you want to go to Tokyo?

Sounds like you got some wonderful presents! I've never made those cookies either, but I just might try them! I'll take Lisa's free trip back home to Hawai'i!

Its a T party! So cute! Totoros are all over the place in Japan, unlike here. There's even an all Totoro store in Akasaka in Tokyo that you would love. Those cookies would be really good this morning...

Sunflowerfairy said...

Oh man, I love peanut butter blossoms. Serious love.

Cute totoro.

Jennifer said...

Those Totoros are adorable. Now I have a hankering to make those cookies. Fortunately for me, they just had a huge sale on peanut butter at the store (10 for $10) so I'm all stocked up.

A mystery give-away? Sounds like fun. Count me in, please. Those cookies look tasty. And your Totoros are the cutest!

Jessica said...

Cute gifties and great noro! Always a good combination. :)

I resisted the Little Knits Silk Garden sale only because she didn't have the color I wanted. The prices on some of the Noro yarns are great.
