Look what came!! A final and amazing package from my secret pal, Shelby. Shelby was a great pal and a pleasure getting to know, even if only a little bit on my part. Now that I know who she is, I can get to know more about her and guess what, she's close by!
As you can see there are lots of wonderful goodies. If you click on the above photo you can see my notes (just rollover the picture). The Manos colorway is beautiful! We both learned last month that this yarn and color was a favorite for both of us. Shelby made me a CD of a Dave Matthews concert that she attended and a friend recorded...props to her for finding DMB music that I didn't already own! The black bar is rose soap from The Alchemic Dragon and it smells lovely. The two skeins of drinkable "vineyard" lace weight yarn are my first lace yarn!! They are skeins of Shadow from Knit Picks - gorgeous! Shelby also made me some great stitch markers and I think she made the card. Take a look...
Secret Pal 8 was a great time! Now I just need to finish my gift for my partner this weekend and mail off her surprise, and we'll be all set.
For today I'm headed to Annapolis with Grant and his mom. We may also do some outlet shopping. I plan to be knitting in the back seat or under a tree. Oh, I also stopped by the Knit Happens sale last night and picked up a few things :) I'll share that another time.
