Yay for my Secret Pal!!!!

Look! Look! Look! I got a package from my secret pal today!

Here's some balls of Manos del Uraguay and Classic Elite Lush. And because she knows I don't have a swift, it's all wound up for me. YAY!

This is a binder that she put together for me for holding all my loose patterns and inside there are dividers for different types of patterns-- Sweaters, Scarves, Shawls, Socks, and Bags. AND there are three patterns inside to help me with my entrelac-- a scarf, a bag, and some socks. But I want to call special attention to the cover because it's all hand-done like a scrap book page and really really cool.

Of course, there was also something that I wanted to eat but couldn't:

But I could eat the insides! YUM.

And there was a big box of Chocolate Covered Cherries (my favorite!) and some Burt's Bees chapstick (also my favorite!) and butter popcorn (drool) and books! I got Oliver TwistElizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanacand Traditional Fair Isle Knitting. Yay for my secret pal!!!

I'm soooo glad you liked everything! It's a little nerve-wracking picking out things for someone else, even when you know what kinds of things they like.
I know you said you wanted to try entrelac. You will really enjoy it - it looks much harder than it really is. If you have the Scarf Style book there is a beautiful stole called Lady Eleanor that is made with Silk Garden that you might want to try. It wasn't on your wish list so I didn't know if you had it yet or not. Anyway, enjoy!
