My Secret Pal Causes Pleasure and Pain
A package from my SP arrived yesterday! V. went out with his buds last night, and neglected to tell me about it beforehand, so I didn't find out about it until this morning. The package contained a gorgeous skein of blue and purple handspun yarn (SP - Did you spin and/or dye this?), a needle sizer, a pretty stitch marker with a bead and a charm of a ball of yarn with two needles (again, SP - Did you make this?), some tea, and a copy of Knitting Rules by the Yarn Harlot. I will post pics this weekend.
And now for the pain - Apparently that beautiful stitch marker does not bear enough resemblance to the crappy plastic ones I normally use for my husband to recognize its purpose. Some milk and two Cheerios - believe me when I say ouch - came out of my nose this morning when he asked me why on earth my pal would give me a bellybutton ring.
I Won a Contest!
Laura at affiknitty had a contest this week, and I won the knitting book of my choice! What to choose, what to choose?
So big thank yous from me this morning! Thank you, SP, for all the wonderful stuff you sent! Thank you, Laura, for having a contest! Thank you, Random Number Generator, for picking me!
