Sweetest Secret Pal

I have to begin by saying, my Secret Pal 9, Hope, was absolutely fantastic. I just can't believe that I have just as great of a pal for Secret Pal 10! I received this today:

She was SO kind and thoughtful, and put a lot of hard work into my package. She actually dyed the sock yarn herself, basing the colors off of my blog and what I said I liked. Look at the label she made - it actually says Sassy Krafty! The yarn is so soft, and superwash too! (I have to apologize; my picture-taking skills suck, don't they? I don't know why I haven't bought a book or taken a class or something. Hmm...will have to put that on my "List of Things to Do.")

She also made a set of beautiful sock stitch markers and a row counter to match, and found a cute matching bag on Etsy too! The bag actually came with a little pocket and tags, so you can label what project you're working on. How perfect for someone as organized as me? The needles are of course to go with the sock pattern and yarn, which she says is for my very own "Traveling Sock," which leads to the next item - the book. That's right - signed by the Yarn Harlot herself!

Plus, she even sent some squishy balls for Muffin and Sam, which they have already played with this evening. How nice is that? This package absolutely made my day. Thank you so much Secret Pal 10! I can hardly wait to find out who you are!

That is a great package you got from your Secret Pal. My SP is only sending me 1 package at the end of SP10. I hope I don't get flaked on! Your so lucky to get the Harlot's book autographed! Let me know how the book is!
