Hooray for Secret Pal!

At last, a package from my Secret Pal! It was filled with lots of yarn, starting with these huge hanks of kid mohair. Brooks Farm Yarn Primero. There is no color number, but it's a beautiful deep salmon color. Hand dyed, yay!

There is also a hank of this variegated version. Salmon, orange and lavendar, lovely. There's a color code type thing on the label and it says SW-M and K24. I have been wanting to knit some lace and now I have the appropriate yarn to do so.

And another fabulous hank of yarn! Bear Mountain Colors in Wilderness. Looking forward to making a yummy pair of socks for the cold winter weather.

There's also "Healing Yew" Knitter's Balm, a notepad, and my favorite - a case for keeping stitch markers and pins. All the little pieces have seperate compartments that snap shut. I love it! (I also really like the beaded marker included.) I am always losing pieces despite keeping them somewhat organized. This is a great addition to my knitting bag!

Thank you so much SP, I love everything!

That was worth the wait! What a great package, and a really neat idea for organizing the markers! I have a couple cases similar that I use for medicines when I travel...I may have to turn one into a marker organizer!
