Joining



Well, it looks like a joiner. I don't really have the time or energy to commit to Secret Pal 8, but I decided to sign up for the relatively low-pressure One Skein Secret Pal even though you actually have to knit something as part of the deal. I've ordered a copy of One Skein, but since Amazon Canada doesn't stock a lot of small press releases, I won't receive it or the other two knitting books (I caved and ordered Knitting Vintage Socks and Last Minute Knitted Gifts) until mid June.

Speaking of secret pals, my secret pal 7 still hasn't revealed herself. I am very sad. I love her so, but she remains a mystery.

I'm going to try to craft my butt off this weekend, despite the fact that we're starting the sodding process in our embarrassing back yard. There's a lot brewing here in Elizaboothy land, so it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to free up any knitting time any time soon...

I joined the One Skein Secret Pal too. I haven't done a Secret Pal thing before, but it sounds like fun. Good luck!

I just signed up to one skein last week too! (despite my misgivings that it's just a marketing ploy to get more people to buy the book... but it sounds like a good book anyway).

Good luck with the yard, we desperately need to do that with our front garden which is more dandelions than grass right now...

I agree, I was hesitant to join because of the marketing angle and it does seem a little less friendly and DIY than the regular secret pal. But, it's a little simpler than the regular secret pal, which I can't really deal with financially or otherwise right now.

Oh my God, i suck! Not only did i totally flake on mailing your last package before YOU went on vacation. I went on vacation the following week and upon straightening up the house the other day i found your unmailed package just waiting patiently for me to deliver it to the post office. *hangs her head in shame* I am a giant FLAKE! I am glad to say however, that your package is being mailed today so you will most likely have it some time next week. I just want to assure you that i did not forget about you entirely and you DO still have your last package on the way. I've enjoyed being your SP and getting to know you though your blog.
By the way, my name's Zona :) Nice to meet you!
