Thanks Secret Pal!

I got my 1st Secret Pal package!! Last week I got a surprise in the mail after a really crummy day at work. I came home to this:

Its 9 skeins of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Violet (darker purple) and Hush (lighter purple)! I have never used Knit Picks yarn, so I am excited. I really like the colors ~ makes me think that spring-like weather might actually be coming soon (not this 40-50 degree crap we've had the last week or so)! She also emailed me a link to this great felted bag pattern that I will definitely make. I'm quite a sucker for felting as you will learn. I mean who doesn't love washing your mistakes, wonky stitches, and unsightly holes away?
Thanks to my Secret Pal for a great gift!

PS- Sorry to my wonderful Secret Pal for the delay in the public post. Cable Internet access has been horrible the last week, and was out all day on Easter Sunday! Ugh!

Ooh very nice - that will make a great bag indeed!! And thanks for the pattern link - I may just have to try that one myself. I'm such a sap for a great new bag pattern :D
