Thanks Secret Pal!!


I got a lovely package in the mail yesterday from my secret pal. She sent me lots of sweet smelling vanilla stuff, some sweets, and some undyed Knitpicks sock yarn. She also included some Koolaid to dye it with! Also, I must say that my pal has some amazing talent with paper! I'm guessing that her card was handmade, and she sent me some little gift tag thingies that she made. I'm going to post more indepth pics later.

I was going to wait til today to start dyeing, but I couldn't help myself, and I just had to do it last night. It turned out really well. I have sock yarn in colors that I would actually buy if I saw them in a store.

I used some Ice Blue somethinorother, lemon lime, and Strawberry. I can't wait to try this again in the future.

I'll just let the pics speak for themselves. Work is driving me absolutely crazy right now, so I'm too tired for details.

Thank you Secret Pal!!!! You made me forget about work for a couple of hours last night!

I'm glad you liked the gift! The sock yarn turned out very cute. One package left to go...

P.S. CUTE haircut! I just chopped off 12 inches of mine the other day and donated it to Locks of Love, a charity that makes hairpieces for children with alopecia.
