Thank you Secret Pal!


I received a lovely and delightful package from my secret pal today. Everything was inside this very cool hatbox:

Inside, 2 skeins of sari silk yarn, a sheepie tape measure, a bar of very French and very lavender soap, and a pretty card.

I'm excited to try the silk yarn. I seem to remember a pattern for a mitered bag made out of it in a magazine (Interweave?) a couple of years ago, so that's a thought. Or maybe a fabulous scarf/stole with dropped stitches to show off the yarn?

Meanwhile, I just sent my pal some soaps from The Alchemic Dragon. Goodness, there's yummy stuff there. I was hard pressed not to order all the tea soaps for myself. Mmm, chai.

Knitting? What's that, again?

That yarn is gorgeous. Can't wait to see it made up.

Nice package! Yes, I do think I'm funny. Knitty has a good pattern for a mitered bag. I knit it up, but made the sides a little taller than the pattern called for. I love that bag.

I did it! I really knitted a sock--guy variety. It even looks like a sock! Happy dancing.
