What a great package!

Here's my third package from my Secret Pal. She has fantastic taste - this is the same colour of Koigu I managed to buy for myself :) I'm going to make some kind of lacey scarf with this I think, although my DBF is lobbying for a pair of socks for him to match mine....

I love the Bryspun DPNs too - great points! And the Body Shop cream is Vanilla scented - my favourite, and perfect for Winter.

Click the pic to see larger version of all the goodies I got from my pal! I love that she does the yarn and pattern and supplies so I can just sit right down and KNIT my heart out!

Can someone please help me? My email at home had to be reset and I lost the link to our SP3 home where we can post thank-you's to our SP's. Can someone email me the link? I swear I ate stupid pills today or something. oops.

My secret pal revealed

She is Staci from Northern Embrace Knitting and she revealed herself with this:

KRSP3 gifts

Look closer:


Ten balls of Lara, in the most amazing orange color. She did send me pattern as well, but while I am certainly going to make those, I think I'll have a Spring Fling with Lara. And what can I say about Positano?


Beside that it truly reminds me of the scarves and hats in rafia you can buy in Positano. I need to find an appropriate pattern, something that really shows off how beautiful this yarn is.

And then she sent me a book - I love book and I can't wait to read this one!

In the note she sent me she wrote that she had fun being my SP. You had fun? I had a blast with this, this and now this!

Thank you Staci, you have been a wonderful SP!

Great package from my SP!

I can't figure out how to post photos to this blog, so here's a link where you can see all the wonderful goodies I just got from my Secret Pal...

  • beautiful yarn that she purchased in Norway - so nice of her to think of me on her trip!
  • The Opinionated Knitter by EZ - I've heard so much about this book and can't wait to read it
  • yummy dark chocolate - can't wait to try this too
  • fun pouch that I can use for knitting supplies
  • Burt's Bees hand repair kit - how did she know I've been wanting this but didn't have the heart to splurge on myself? :)
Thanks SP - you're the best!

Woo hoo! Thanks pal :)

Well, I think I've actually managed to create my first blog post! Here's the package from my fabulous secret pal. I have a pattern picked out for the sock yarn already :)

Getting that pic up there took some doing!

Thank you! Thank you!

I have to say that I think MY secret pal is the best! Unfortunately, I am convinced that if I download one more thing to my computer it will have a glorious crash. I decided to direct you to a webpage (no blog--maybe soon) to see the pictures of my gift! Those pictures will be posted soon (when I get my new computer!!!).

First I must apologize for getting this posted so late. The package arrived while I was gone over the weekend but my husband informed me it was here and I counted the days until I got home to open it.

I opened the unsuspecting box to find: Knitter's Review pencils that say, "The Surgeon General has determined that knitting may be habit-forming" (may be???), cuticle and nail oil, smell good soap, 2 balls of Jaeger Chamonix in a gorgeous chocolate brown, small plastic needle gauge finder, chocolate fondue flavored lip gloss and a beautifully knitted gift bag (from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) filled with lots and lots of Easter candy, including a solid chocolate bunny and Peeps!!!

So I will post pics soon!!

Thanks, again, secret pal--YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Yay! I posted to my blog but thought I'd post here too since I'm just so excited!

I got YUMMY cascadeya 220 in a gorgous green (the pics don't do it justice, honestly it is so rich!!) a set of DPNs and a great pattern for beginner socks - PERFECT gofts!!

Thank you so much secret pal! Posted by Hello
I got a package from my Secret Pal today!! I love the white cotton, and the purple-y wool will make a really nice purse! I'm going to go try some chocolate tea right now, and I've already eaten some of the Runts - they're some of my favorites! Thanks Secret Pal! :o)
