More Love From SP7

This morning my fantastic Secret Pal posted a comment promising a new package and sure enough the mail woman was knocking at my door just a few hours later. My pal gave not just with her pocketbook, but also with her heart and sent me some really great customized items. First up is two balls of Brown Sheep Wildfoote, which I've never seen up in these parts (Toronto seems to be strictly a Lamb's Pride kind of town). My pal bought the yarn in Vanilla (aka white) and hand dyed it in a colourway that she's calling Atomic Apples. I love it. I'm going to have to find a really special sock pattern for this stuff because I'm going to keep whatever I make from it for myself. She also included a set of DPNs that she handpainted, a little yarn snipper (perfect for my upcoming 10 hour plane trip!) and a super dark chocolate bar. Thanks Secret Pal!

Oh, and that little strawberry is a swatch she knitted up to demonstrate the colourway of the yarn. Did I mention I love it?

Hooray! I'm soooo happy that you liked the goodies! That chocolate is my new favorite obsession. It's so dark and a little bitter and ..... *drool* I hope you enjoy it as much as i do. And i'm really excited that you love the yarn. I can't wait to see what you knit it up as!
Have a great weekend!
