My secret pal had to wait till July and somehow the package came at the end of the month. Well my wonderful pal this round was Elizabeth Manning from Manning Knits
. She blogs with her mother. She sent me some yarn that she had spun (the purplish yarn) and dyed (the green, which she sells on her website
.) I have not decided what to do with the handspun (it is fingering weight), but the green yarn is going to be a Boteh Scarf from Interweave Crochet Spring 2007
(scroll down it is in the middle of the page). Just so you know I have not gone to the dark side. I knew how to crochet before I could knit.
She also included a dog sweater kit (patterns and needles), buttons (I might have to put those on the black cardi that I am planning to make), tea, cedar disks (that made it into my sweater and sock drawers), and the cute little penguin book marks.
Thanks pal. Sorry I did not post sooner.
