Secret Pal 7 scores again!
I had a very pleasant surprise when I got back from offshore yesterday - yet another parcel from my Secret Pal. I think we can safely say that I scored as in the parcel was a pretty card, some marigold seeds (which grow really well in our garden), a chocolate pretzel (now eaten), a Brittany crochet hook no less (just in time for me to learn to do some more crochet), a little notebook, a Lantern Moon sheep tape measure (they are so cute) and a skein of gorgeous Jaggerspun in a rusty orange colour.

The yardage in the skein is fantastic so I can easily foresee a nice wrap or shawl, perhaps even the Ene shawl from Scarf style could be a possibility. We shall have to think about it. The colour fits in ace with the way my wardrobe colours are going. Being a wool/silk mix it is very soft. A delicate 40's style camisole could be another possibility. Pondering...

Thank you very much SP for a'thing. It's been really lovely to get little treats from across the pond. I look forward to the great reveal...

P.S. And my SP was Mary Ellen from Webster, New York. You can find her at . She's been great. Thanks Mary Ellen.

    Hey there Maureen! I received the postcard and your email today...thank you. I've so enjoyed SP7 and all the lovely goodies you've sent my way. You are a gem. Now that I know where you blog, I will have to hang around to catch up and learn more 'bout you! We have a few common live in Scotland, it's the very place I want to some day see (tourist can have Hawaii and I'm a Logan by birth) and we both have tatoos. LOL Though, mine's on my ankle...I did take a peek today for a few minutes on your blog. I would love for you to email your snail addy so I can send you a little "thank you" your way. Until then, happy knitting to you!
