The Time of Revelation

Gee, that title sounds kind of apocalyptic or Biblical doesn't it? Well, in all actuality, the revelation is neither apocalyptic or Biblical - the revelation is of my awesome SP10 pal! That's right! Today I found out who my secret pal is!

She is none other than Robyn from Knit and Purl Mama! Today I received an envelope with a pattern for the Seize Diamondbacks socks, as well as the dvd for the Knitty Gritty show the designer of the socks was on.

Robyn, thank you so much for all the awesome gifts you've sent - I love everything! You've made my first experience with Secret Pal wonderful, and I'm so glad I decided to take part this time. I'm going to join again, though it probably won't be until SP12, because I'll be getting reading and heading to South Korea during the next round (assuming they start it in the next couple of months).

Robyn has an etsy shop (she actually got me sent me some earrings from there pretending that she ordered them from "Robyn", not letting on it was her shop!), called graphicdesignchick. Go check it out - look at those oh so cute dragonfly stitch markers! She's also going to be opening her own online yarn shop that will be located at Right now, however, it takes you to her blog but once she has the shop up and running that is the address you can find it at. I can't wait to see the yarns she'll have!

In other news, I've begun a children's pair of socks in the red/yellow/orange yarn that Robyn sent me a little while ago. I've got one sock finished and will begin the other one this weekend. I've been pretty much knitting this sock at work during breaks and lunch, but I did do the cuff and gusset at home. I'm also planning on starting the socks for my Sockapalooza pal this weekend, and I really hope they turn out!

When I finished my ISE4 pal's scarf, I promised to post a picture and the pattern when she got the package. However, I sent it out on June 7th but I haven't heard anything from her. I don't know if she has gotten the package or not. She's also not posted anything on the ISE4 blog saying she received it yet either. Regardless, I will try to get the pattern and picture up Sunday or Monday.

Well, off to read some more of Robyn's blog - you should see her little fella; he's so adorable and has the sweetest smile!

There will be a shop (etsy) update tomorrow or by Sunday latest. I'll announced it on my blog.

I want to see a picture of the socks with the yarn I dyed. It was my FIRST dye job! I'm dying to see!
