My Sockret Pal struck again, sending me all sorts of cool goodies!
She send some Patons SWS in the exact colorway I’ve been wishing for, and some assorted knit-bag essentials: sticky notes, a measuring tape decorated with paw prints, and a really great little Knitting Reference book. I also received some candy, though its been devoured already. She included a large plastic-and-fabric zippered storage bag for my yarn – so far it’s keeping three sweaters-worth safe from cat-attack. Thanks so much, Sockret Pal!
In the same day, I received another package, this one from possibly blogless Melinda, who revealed herself to be my Spin to Knit pal.
She send some Valentine’s Day treats, chocolate of course, and some facial masks that I’ll enjoy some evening when Andy is out. Her yarn is progressing nicely; this skein has wool, alpaca, and silk in it, she says. Very pretty – thank you, Melinda!

And yes, that is a new toy they are resting upon. I’ve been very frustrated trying to spin equal amounts of fiber by eyeing it, so I finally bought a fancy-schmancy scale. So pretty, so shiny…
With most of the projects I “had” to complete now Finished Objects, I’m free to pursue new interests…
Don’t worry, the silk mitts aren’t on permanent hiatus. But for the moment, I’m reveling in the joy of colorwork. Ahhh…
