More secret pal...

A photoless post from my office at lunchtime I'm afraid.
My spoilee got her package yesterday. I can now reveal she is Maggie and resides here
I'm looking forward to her post about my last parcel and I have really enjoyed seeing her photo and illustration Friday posts. She is far more of an artist than I ever hope to be. How are the socks going Maggie btw?
In the spirit of having no parcels to look forward to I have ordered the Huggable Hedgehog pattern from Two Swan Yarns. Karen has been the most helpful person I have ever purchased anything off. I had a few problems with cookies and the shopping cart but she was really friendly and extremely helpful. I have also purchased a little something else. But I think it is going to be turned into secret presents so all will be revealed in due course.
I have also ordered some "anti-tickle" merino wool from Texere to use in another dying experiment. Hopefully I will be able to make some more socks with it. I am thinking cables this time.
I have also signed up for two new secret pal experiences. The OneSkein Secret Pal and Secret Pal 8 (which starts just before my birthday!) Looking forward to them both. I think the OneSkein Secret Pal is going to be a bit of a challenge just to choose one skein of yarn... and to make something cool from one skein that you know your pal will enjoy!
