It’s been a long time

I know I know… shame on me. SHAME! Leavin all 2 of ya hanging… ahahaha. What?? no really, I think there are just 2 of you. And I don’t know how to do that fancy schmancy check on who or how many of you has been around… and since hardly anyone leaves comments I can’t very well check that way.

Anyhoo, some very exciting stuff has been happening around here. First, and most importantly, the package from my secret pal arrived! (last saturday) I was so excited I couldn’t even muster up the patience to take pictures of it before I dug into it to start making stuff! So here they are, bleated but much loved and treasured!

these are the cutest (and tiniest!) little stitch markers ever created! Little birds and sheep! So tiny!! and the sheep have bits of little green grass in their mouths! AWWWWW. She made these with her own two hands… so that I could use them in my sock knitting! Socks!
OK now this is a BIG deal… the bag, and the needle case. SO CUTE! And guess what… You’ll never guess….
She made them herself! I was floored! They are perfect. I LOVE them so much, I have taken the knitting tote with me to a couple of places now, and everyone loves it!

Where this sweet sweet woman finds the time to do all of this creative stuff (knitting, clay modeling, sewing, all on the side of fixing her house and working!) I’ll never know! teach me oh great time manager!

You can’t really see it in this picture, but in the needle case there is a new set of bamboo needles, I love bamboo needles! they’re so light and easy to use! She knows me sooo well.

All three of those balls of yarn are for socks!! I love love love the colors, particularly this one:

These colors are absolutely gorgeous and so appropriate considering my obsession with all shades of purple. And below is the other yarn. It’s purple too! and yes… I have already started a sock! On the 2 circs that she got me just for sock making!! Yay!
And last but certainly not least. Here are the treats she sent for my babies! Who have all devoured them like they were never going to see food again.

Also there was this oh so cute little chocolate bunny game, a game! something which i have never seen before… as if chocolate could be MORE fun! But unfortunately, my dog stole it… I’m sure he enjoyed it though.

“So, in conclusion ladies and jellyspoons” my secret pal is the bestest ever… Way better than yours! I’m assuming, since I don’t know about anyone elses… and also because I like bragging, and also, because it’s just the truth.

Love you secret pal AKA Sharon!

  1. Wow, great package from what sounds like a great pal. Looks like you’re already having fun with it all.

  2. 🙂 I’m so glad you like the parcel! I enjoyed making the stitch markers, bag & case. It’s knida weird to see a picture of them in their new home! That sock is coming along nicely too 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the finished pair. Is it the simple sock from the book? All that ribbing – eek!

  3. I hope doggie didn’t get sick eating the chocolate!

  4. OOOH I am so jealous!!!! That is cool!

  5. Wow, and I make 5, way more than the two you thought 😉

  6. Seems to me you’ve been an excellent secret pal yourself. I’ve just been to Mary’s blog and had a look at the goody package you sent her. The sari silk bag is gorgeous!
