I found my last secret pal 8 gift waiting on my doorstep today. Can it already be August? Is that possible?
Snort! Does she not know me that well? Making me wait to open something. Can you believe it? Me? Okay, so … so far, I haven’t opened it. But I know I probably won’t make it til the 31st. I just can’t. I’m not that type of person. I have such little self control…. (see I almost just opened it typing this!) How mean! Really Mean. Really. (giggle) Mean!
Another great Robert Jordan book (number 4!) Vintage yarn and a great story behind it, including memories of the store that it was from in my own life, and a cute homemade Bunny! (not pictured, some interesting ‘new to me’ sweetners, and another Magazine. Could, after all this time the magazines be a clue to her identity. I had thought that perhaps they were just packing material, but now I am totally wondering… puts down the ‘secret envelope’)
Thanks for spoiling me! =) I’ve enjoyed it very much.
My own secret pal gift is heading out on wednesday. I wanted to take a few pictures of the 2 items I’ve made for it.
But something I hope she will like, and that went a bit out of my comfort zone is this
Yarn Jar. I found the Yarn Jar at a local store, and decorated it, including a matching stitch marker holder. I put 2 girls and one boy on it (hope she catches that) to remind her of her own children. I love the little froggies on it. You know how us knitters are always at the ‘Frog Pond’ when we make a mistake. (rip it, rip it, rip it) The Yarn Jar has a top that you can thread the yarn through and keep it from getting dirty while you knit it. It already has surprise yarn inside.
I hope my Secret Pal knows how much I’ve been thinking about her this summer.
