One Skein SP!

Months ago I signed up for the One Skein Secret Pal exchange. I spoiled Louise, whose blog you can read here and I received a skein from my spoiler back in May, but then she vanished. BUT the organisers of the exchange provided me with a wonderful angel instead. Maylin, who lives in France and whose blog is here.

And this week I got a parcel! First of all there were all these goodies:


That's notelets (with authors on), chocolate (there was more, but I, er, ate it!), a cool card and a little notebook with sheep on.
And some yarn!
The sock yarn is 100g of Opal Seide (silk) 4ply which came in the little bag on the right. I've been meaning to try knitting with silk sock yarn for a while! And on the left is 190g of sari silk in a gorgeous mixture of jewel colours (much brighter than in my pic!).
Anyway, thank you Maylin, you're a total star! I love all of it!

Gorgeous parcel - do let us know what the silk is like to knit with - after I've made up my current gazillion projects it's something I'm longing to try...

Yummy goodies (edible and otherwise). I'd be interested to hear how you like knitting with the silk.

LOL,I also recieved the same lovely mittens from my Pal,wasn't it fun!
I was surprised to read that the organisers commented that we knitters rarely recieved knitted gifts from others and that was the reason behind the swap!So True!!!!!
