I got my final One Skein Secret Pal package yesterday! I had been driving Andrew nuts all week, asking him whether I’d gotten any packages every single day on my way home from school. Yesterday when he went out to get the mail, I asked again, and he made a sad face at me and handed me the pamphlet that had come in the mail, as if that was all we had gotten. So sneaky! So anyway, I was quite pleasantly surprised when he finally handed me the package and I got to find out who has been sending me lovely skeins of yarn…Alice ! (I’m linking to the site that was on the address label…Alice, if you have a blog, let me know so that I can link to it in my sidebar.) Here’s a picture of the contents:
A lovely little neckscarf knit from a skein of Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino, in a most gorgeous colorway (I wish I knew which colorway it was, because I’d love to make a pair of socks in these colors). It’s like autumn in yarn form. Autumn is my favorite season, so this makes me very happy. Also, Koigu is so very soft and squishy, and feels lovely knit at this sort of drapey gauge. I keep just squeezing the scarf in my hands, it feels so lovely. Along with the scarf, she included a (I think) shawl pin (I’m kind of embarassed to admit that I don’t know exactly how these work) with lovely green beads on it, and a card with a lovely water scene. Thanks again, Alice!
(and now I’m off to go fondle my Koigu scarf some more…coming up, a post about the dubbelmossa I knit last fall, to continue the theme of blues and greens in my knits)
