secret pal surprise
I found a wonderful package at my door when I arrived home yesterday. My secret pal sent me the pattern for beginner socks (perfect for me!) and superwash wool sock yarn, "Big Mexiko" in a great self-patterning colorway. There's also tropical trail mix that will make for some yummy snacking, Brittany (luxurious!) size 1 DPNs for a fair isle mitten project that I have in mind, and needle keepers. Everything was so thoughtful, and I am oh-so-pleased!
I sent my secret pal a package over a week ago, but I haven't heard any feedback yet. Hopefully the USPS didn't lose it.
Paul and I finally succumbed and got cable TV. Our TV reception has been absolutely horrible for 2 years, so that's the real attraction. It has been at least 5 years since I've had cable, and I was a little afraid that it would be addicting. That doesn't seem to be the case, though, 'cause there's still not much I would like to watch! I may have to add BBC America to the lineup to make up for all that ESPN Paul will be watching.
