Secret Pal Goodies and Branching Out

Branching Out is complete, finished and gifted to my grandmother- who loved it (and the hours of pain that went into it). Here it is before being wrapped modeled by Skeeta- who is rather a reluctant model! More pics here.

When I got home this afternoon I had a fantastic surprise waiting for me. A parcel from my secret pal- who is the most fantastic person. This package she said is 'all about the socks' and included 4 balls of Knitpicks sock yarn, some great stitch markers- handmade (all the better), Cat Bordhi's book on knitting socks on circular needles and the summer IK magazine- which still isn't out here in Australia yet. I am soo lucky- thankyou so much my SP! Your kindness and generosity is loved and appreciated.

and a close up of the stitch markers on my new love- Susan Bates crystallites.

Your dog looks sweet and what a nice pile of SP goodies. I wish I could see your next project picture better; it looks like a nice drapey garment. I like more drape and less shaping in all things, since I am shapeless myself.

I am really glad you liked my package :-)
The stitch markers are homemade, but I can't take the credit for them - I bought them from a local girl who sells them.
I hope you have fun with the socks on two circulars!
