Remember the packages I got from my Secret Pal a few weeks ago? Well, I've been eyeing them every day, watching the calender, waiting for October 1st to get here. Lo and behold, October arrived and I didn't even think of the packages until my SP emailed me to see how I liked them. (I have a good reason for forgetting - my family and I were rear-ended Sunday afternoon :( Everyone is fine, there were no injuries other than a little soreness & stiffness. Our car however, did not fair so well. The damage to the back end was pretty significant, and we are waiting to see what the insurance company does. We halfway expect them to total it out.)
Anyway, back to business! My secret pal sent me a wonderful skein of yarn, in gorgeous medium and dark teals, with the tiniest bit of deep plum thrown in. It just happens to match a skirt and blouse I wore yesterday! The yarn is Colinette JitterBug, and the colorway is Jay. She also sent a Lucy Neatby sock pattern called Fiesta Feet, which calls for a variegated yarn and a solid yarn. I think I have just the yarn in my stash for it! But wait, there's more! She also sent a pattern for Entrelac Socks from MenKnit e-zine! (Scroll down to page 16.) It calls for six different colors of sock yarns, so it will be great for using up all my leftovers! Plus, I can finally learn Entrelac!
Thank you Secret Pal, you're fantastic, and I love them all!
