I have the coolest Secret Pal ever. Today I got a surprise package crammed with Burt's Bees tins (I so love Burt's Bees stuff), Sin-o-Mints ("For the sinner in you"), a fantastic pair of Emily knee socks, and my first set of other-than-icky-plastic-ring-stitch markers...these have little skullies on them. They're fabulous, and it was the perfect box-o-gloomy-day-after-christmas
I'm between cameras at the moment, so please excuse the lack of some fantastic photo of all the aforementioned which should be inserted here. Just close your eyes and imagine the Secret Pally goodness of it all, will you?
Some Stuff I Made for Xmas
Okay, nothing as delectable as what I saw chez Severina's Stitch-o-Rama, but now that gifts have been exchanged I can post a few pics (see, I really was knitting [and crocheting] all this time, really):
turns out it fit the expectant mom-to-be!
(Note: Model is most definitely neither niece nor sis-in-law.)
Well, it reminds me I have 2 1/2 more placemats to go...)
Here it is yet again as a table runner. And, of course, with matching warshrag.
I love the way the Lamb's Pride worked up.
