Secret Pal Surprise

I received my final package from my secret pal in the mail today. My pal did some serious shopping for me at Dea Terra Creations. If you've never checked out her stuff you really should. I can't recommend Maia highly enough. I was totally blown away by all the goodies inside the box. First, I pulled out the soaps. 3 handmade soaps. One each of Apple Spice, Oatmeal & Honey, and Coconut Lime Verbena and let me tell you that they smell SO good. I can't wait to use them. I'm so psyched to use them that I just might drag my lazy arse out of bed early to hit the shower in the morning. Then I pulled out a silver package that had 13, yes 13, amazing stitch markers inside. They are made with Lapis, Lazuli, Amber, Phrenite, and Carnelian. Just beautiful! Then 370 yards of the softest 100% Merino yarn called Pacific Dreams. It's blues and greens and will always make me think of my visits to the Pacific ocean. It's amazing how many wonderful memories this yarn stirred up. The last package I opened contained an amazing yarn I will cherish forever. It is named Kerry's Blues and is 380 yards of the most gorgeous shades of blue I've ever seen. It's a 50/50 blend of Merino and Tencel and is destined to become my favorite pair of socks. Not just because of the colors but because my pal took the time to have something so special made just for me. I cried. Like a baby. Telling you all about it now is making me teary eyed again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much Secret Pal!!! You have made me feel so special. I will never forget all the wonderful things you have done for me. The postcards, emails and all the wonderful goodies...you've truly outdone yourself and I appreciate you so much!!!

By the way, my pal has given me some hints but I've yet to figure out who she is. As soon as I find out I'll post a link to her blog so you can visit.

on those stitch markers... sound lovely! watch out though, some folks think carnelian has "fertility enhancing" properties... so more babies

Kerry,

What a wonderful package you have received, and I think the special yarn just for you is the most precious gift ever. How fantastic is that? I know you will receive so much pleasure knitting those "Kerry" socks, and treasure them forever. I have a pair like that too, thanks to you.

Hi Kerry! I can't find your email, but I'm just letting you know that the final package for my SP is going to be a few days late. I've already contacted her and she's fine with the delay. Thanks for being a great hostess!
