A week ago I received my first Secret Pal 12 package. I can't believe that it took me so long to post about it....I am such a slacker. The package was loaded with yarn goodies. My pal has really spoiled me. Here is a picture of all the yarn he/she sent!
He/She did a great job picking my favorite colors. I have used the green tweed before to make my Alan Dart Gnome. It has such a great texture. I think I am going to use these to make some more Alan Dart toys. He has a great traditional bear pattern for sale on his website. I think the green tweed would make a great sweater for that bear. My pal also sent a mini package to me a couple of weeks ago (again...slacker). The wonderful journal and card at the bottom of this picture were in that package.
My favorite item in the latest package was this!
A TY Beanie Baby turkey. I love it! The tail feathers actually stay up on their own which is pretty cool. My pal has been great to me. THANK YOU whoever you are!
The SP question this week asks, "What is your favorite type of project to take along on vacation?". For me this depends on where I am going, and who I am going with. I almost always have a sock project on me, but I also like to take scarves to work on. I don't like to take anything that requires a lot of counting or charts because it limits how much I can participate in conversations. :)
