Thanks Secret Pal!

Check it out! I got the most fabulous yarn from my Secret Pal!! Two skeins of dk weight hand painted 100% merino! It is Marisol Hachu - why have I never heard of this? It is shade #304, Sapphire Jade, and this photo doesn't do it justice. The colors are deep and vibrant, deep luscious greens, plum, and eggplant, with a touch of turquoise and dark lime, and the tiniest bit of brown. I just love it, and I can't decide what to do with it.... I'm leaning towards either some gloves or mittens, or a scarf. Or some socks... I don't know!

I mailed off a box to my spoilee last week, and she received it. I think she loved it all, but I'm not telling anything else, so she won't figure out who I am :)

Oh, and look what else has been in the mail box.

Yes, my Secret Pal has sent me 3 other packets, and I think there are more on the way. The only problem is I have to wait until October 1st to open two of these, and October 15th to open the third. I promised her my will power was strong, so check back on the 1st and 15th (or 2nd & 16th) for new surprises!

Thank you Secret Pal - I really do love my first surprise!!!

Glad you like it ... I'm really enjoying spoiling you! ... Mirasol is part of a fair trade initiative ... I read somewhere it will be available in the US later on in the autumn.

Beautiful yarn! I have to get cracking and send out my first SP package. I like your pal's idea of having you open one package at a time, even though she sent them all at one time. Ingenious!

I could never EVER wait to open those packages! I am the one who wraps up pretty gifts, and then tells the recipient what's inside on the phone two weeks beforehand. I am THAT incapable.
