I recieved my first secret pal package on Saturday!!
Inside I found a book on knitting toys, four beautiful handmade stitch marker, a postcard indicating that my secret pal is from Long Beach, and a box of oatmeal raisin cookies that Philip and I devoured almost immediately. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't wait to start making little toys for Astrid to destroy, it should be great fun.
In other news, I am on a yarn fast until September 1; I cannot buy yarn or Goodwill sweaters to frog. The only LYS shopping I can do is for my secret pal (which should ease the pain). I am hoping this will reduce my current stash, which has outgrown it's container, by at least half. I am going to focus on creative ways to use what I have, especially the leftovers from finished projects. I will post as I go.
