Secret Pal 8!
I got a package from my secret pal last week.
What do you think this is?
If you guessed Noro, you might be correct!
It's Noro Silver Thaw. I forget what the colorway number is, and I don't have it with me. My lovely Secret Pal o Rama sent it to me from the Netherlands.
I never even knew this yarn existed!
It's an angora/wool/nylon blend (I think), and it is oh-so-soft. I have two skeins of it, so I'll have to figure out something nice to make with it. Hmmm...two skeins...
Here's most of what she sent me:
The notebook is a cute little blank journal. The fabric cover is oh-so-me, down to the colors and the op-art-edness of it. There is also a little Dutch lady designed like a Russian nesting doll. I wonder what the background story is to it? There were also some yummy candies (which at at work) and a box of incredible good black tea (in the cupboard right now).
THANK YOU SECRET PAL O RAMA!
This wasn't from my Secret Pal; it is my souvenier yarn from the knittyboard yarn store crawl last Thursday night:
It's Art Yarns Supermerino in a lovely blue colorway:
As an aside, I just saw my Flickr folder of "Finished Objects 2007" and noticed there are only two photos in there. Wow. I'm really slacking, aren't I? I did make my dad a scarf (which I haven't given to him) and made ZMrK a great cabled hat (no pics of that yet), so I shouldn't feel so bad. I'm about 1/2 way done with the second in a pair of socks. Hopefully in a week or so I'll have another FO to post.
In the meantime, enjoy that pr0n.
