My last package from my Secret Pal came on Wednesday as I was leaving for work. I’d stalked the mailman all morning since she told me it was on it’s way. First up Emily over at Skyline Chilly is my Secret Pal, it will be so much easier to write this post if I can call her by her name rather than Secret Pal, so I’m revealing at the beginning not the end. This was my first Secret Pal exchange and probably my last. Emily was so great I can’t imagine anyone topping her.
I open the box and there is a card right on top. I opened it and there is a hand written two page letter from her! She is so sweet and nice and she has my dream job! Working at Lorna’s Laces! She spent some time in a library before that, it’s weird that we have so much in common!
The first thing is this adorable bag. Emily I noticed it has the label from your company in it, did you make this?
Another music CD, I swear we have the same taste in music! It’s so weird to get a mixed CD from someone and like all the songs on it! I listened to this several times on my drive to and from my parents this week.
Then look! Not one, but two, TWO skeins of Malabrigo worsted in Lettuce! I’ll confess I took this to work and made coworkers who know nothing about yarn touch it and smell it! I think everyone thought I was crazy! But it’s soooo soft and beautiful!
Also included is a pattern for slippers for the Malabrigo! As soon as my Christmas knitting is done I”m gonna get started on these! My feet are always cold!
As if that wasn’t enough look! A skein of Manos! Yum! Now see what I mean? She really is the best Secret Pal a gal could hope for. She knows what yarns I love, she knows the colors I like, she has the same taste in music! It doesn’t get any better than that! I’m thinking Calorimetry with the Manos, but I’m open for suggestions, what do ya’ll think?
Emily thank you so much! This has been a wonderful experience for me. The last couple of months have been a very trying time and the gifts and kindness from you have been an amazing help. I could not have asked for a better pal. I’m excited to start reading your blog and checking you out on Ravelry!
