Two More Packages

Friday I received another envelope from my awesome Secret Pal, and again today I received another envelope from her. Here is what I got:Friday's envelope contained the pattern book to make a Scarecrow Family! How cute! There are patterns to make several stuffed scarecrow toys and they are all bright and colourful. I really want to make some of those (or even all of them). My Pal said she knew that I knit for charity and thought that I might like to knit some toys as some of my charity knitting - how thoughtful! I haven't knit any toys yet, but I've had my eye on a few different ones that I'd like to try and now I can add these little scarecrows!

On the right side of the picture is the package I received today. It's a little sock blocker key ring and pattern for to make the sock! I have had my eye on this particular item for a little while now and had planned on ordering one - now I don't have to, because my pal sent one to me! She said she is going to be opening a yarn shop soon, and she's going to be offering these in the shop too. I think she'll do well with selling them. I've seen these all over blogland and they are definately a popular item!

Not much knitting going on - trying to get a child's pair of socks done before the end of the month to count as my May socks and have been working on a pair I started awhile back and never got around to finish. I'm still on the first sock, and I'm going to have to knit like a maniac in order to get the pair done and a pic posted by the 31st! I've just quite busy the last few weeks and have been preoccupied with something else other than knitting. I should be able to let you know shortly what I've been preoccupied with...if all works out, it will be great news, but if it doesn't, then it will be bad news...

So, off I go to do a quick browsing of some knitting blogs and then work on the sock...must...get...socks...done...soon. Happy knitting!

Glad you got the envelopes! Your final package was mailed today.
You'll probably get it by Friday.

Those look like wonderful toy patterns. I've been planning on ordering one of the little sock blocker key chains, too. Enjoy!

You've been blessed this time around with a great pal! I'm so happy to hear of all the spoiling going on. :0)

Not much going on lately on my own knitting front, either.

I love those scarecrow families. I have one of the pattern books, I was told they were being discontinued. I can't wait to see which ones you make.

HDW said...

Love the loot you got from your secretpal. Thank you for your comments on the blog! Where is your socks.....today is the first :)

Shelley said...

Monica...my SP told me that she found the pattern book while out thrift shopping, so it could very well be discontinued (or become discontinued).

HDW...lol, I know. I have a good excuse as to why they are late though, and hopefully I'll be able to reveal what caused the hold up soon. I'll be posting a pic in a few mintues as I type up a new post.
