My Secret Pal sent me a WONDERFUL gift that I got this weekend.

Seriously, you will not BELIEVE how she loaded me up.
(Please excuse the poor picture quality.)

My SP8 was Heike; her blog is here.

As a backdrop to all this stuff, you'll see the beautiful scarf/shawl Heike knitted. It's Birch, from Rowan #34. It is soo cozy and warm, and we have just begun to have a little bit of a temperature drop, so I wrap it around me when I'm cold and then I don't have to turn on the heat.

She sent a mug with a sheep imprint (one black sheep in a field of white, don't I know what that's like), Opal sock yarn (my favorite!), German butter cookies, Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting without Tears, little tags that say Handknit by April (for when I start giving my stuff away), and some lavendar soap and lotion that made the entire package smell SO GOOD. Heike also gave me a subscription to Interweave Knits, which is exciting I look at the magazine at B&N and think, "Maybe someday ... " and now I'll have my own copy, woo!

Thanks, Heike, for being so generous, and for being a GREAT SP8!
