Secret Pal 9 Thank You! Wow!

print of the wave in the sun....

Wow! My first Secret Pal 9 Package arrived! All the way from England! What a thoughtful- sweet and beautiful package! There are two UK Knitting Magazines, (which were devoured upon arrival, with an appropriate cup of Earl Grey, as the sun has not been out in Michigan in DAYS, and it’s perfect curl up on the couch and browse magazine weather!)

There is beautiful lace-weight “Fiberspates” Yarn, which is produced in Wales, (where my Great- grandparents lived prior to coming to the States, and where my Grandmother was born!) There is also a beautiful Calendar, full of pics of the UK… My SP even wrote a lovely letter, taking me on a pictoral tour, of where she’s been, lived and worked! In addition, to all the above are English Rose Scented Drawer sachet’s which I put immediately into my knitting bags!

There were even 2 large pages of dinosaur stickes for Mr Noah! Which he promptly stuck all over his half naked body;)

All I can say- is THANK YOU!!!!

    So pleased you liked the package of gifts. Am smiling at the thought of Noah using the stickers as he did; is this one young man craving a tatoo?!!

    That Print of the Wave shawl is so beautiful, I am in awe of your skills.

    And autumn must be much more advanced in your home than it is here in the UK. Many, many species still have their leaves (most unusal) though a strong wind last week shook most of the horse chestnut leaves off. Many trees that would normally be bare by now still have green leaves.

    I am in HUGE admiration of your delicate lace work. Somehow I can’t get to grips with lace, the only stuff I ever did was when I made up my own wheat sheaf lace with fruit bobbles.
    Do you design your own lace? How does one sit down and design a lace pattern from scratch I wonder? My disabled hands ache with holding large needles and lightweight yarn.

    Thanks for your encouragement on my Kiri. Your lace is beautiful and I like the artsy picture in the window.

    I have a long way to go, but this is inspiration to get there!
