I'm Spoiled




I received my third and final package from my Sockret Pal today! My spoiler is none other than Kate (click on her name and give her a visit, she's a fabulous gal and wonderful knitter). She has been sending me great stuff the past 6 months and this last package was stuffed to the brim. Inside was all this: a beautiful shawl pattern, a ball of Temptations (hairy) yarn, a ball of Naturally Tibet yarn (this wants to be a hat, I think), a ball of some lovely (friend) hand-dyed yarn (it looks sport weight, don't know the fiber content or yardage but it might make some socks), a package of some mini dinosaurs gummie candies (they are in my tummy already and they were yummy), and a nice cosmetic pouch with this in it.... a bar of lavender soap, a tube of lotion and a scrubbie. And as if that wasn't enough she knit me a pair of socks too!

They fit!! She must know how anal I am about my socks matching, because she made them match! They have a pretty lace motif going down the center front of the socks and another pretty lace motif on each side of the leg. Thank you Kate! You have been a wonderful spoiler.

Karen...you are so right, it is fun to get spoiled! Look at all the great stuff your pal sent you, and the socks turned out great, especially in the matching department! On my way to visit her blog...

Hi Karen- I am soooo glad the socks fit and well I have to 'fess up- I am pretty anal about matching socks too. I have been known to cut off about 50yds of yarn in order to get the matching start. I am glad you enjoyed everything (the lollies are my favourite they go soo fast! my pack went as I was standing in line at the post office to mail the package!!

you have been a great 'giftee'
enjoy

Kate
