Secret Pal times two!

Hello, One Skein Secret Pal! Wow, Jaime and Laura really know how to pick ’em, don’t they? This arrived today from my Pal, who lives half a mile from where I used to live, on the Cambridge side of Porter Square. I was on the Somerville side — with my favorite yarn store smack dab between us! And in fact, this lovely hand-dyed, handspun skein was picked out with assistance from Lucy at Mind’s Eye, who helped her find exactly the kind of yarn I adore. Thanks to both of you — it’s beautiful! Also in the box: dark chocolate, which fortunately did not melt in this hideous heat. You must be a mindreader, that’s all I can say. I hope we’ll get to meet when I’m in town this fall!

Without giving too much away, I think I put together a cool box for my Pal. Some handspun, some unusual commercial yarn (in coordinating colors), plus a few special surprises that you can’t get in any store…

And this is a not-secret-pal surprise box that arrived today! One of my fellow Sheep Thrills mailing list friends is in Nepal right now, so I asked her to keep an eye out for the Green Tara amulets I like to use as stitch markers. Not only did she find 5 of them in different sizes, but she also threw in some gorgeous banana fiber yarn and a silky little zippered container perfect for notions. Thank you, Joy, they’re fantastic!

  1. Aw, I’m so glad you like it! I hope the chocolate is good. It sounded like a Chunky, except, well, appetizing! 🙂 It also came from Porter Square: Cambridge Naturals moved in a few weeks ago; it used to be on Mass Ave, halfway to Harvard. Hope to see you in the fall, and looking forward to your next surprise in July!
