Secrets Are Wonderful!

This summer I joined two yarn swaps. The first - Yarn in a Tea Cup - was a rather small swap, but rewarding nonetheless. The second swap I am participating in is through the website and had a summer camp theme. Yesterday, I received my package from my secret pal. She is from California and sent me the greatest package ever! She must have done her research because the things she included in her package fit me to the "t"! I nominate her for "Best Swap Pal Ever!"

This picture includes everything she included in the package!
And a few closeups: Everything in this picture is Non-Yarn Related: a few fruit drinks, so as to not suffer with Bug Juice, Trail Mix, Home-made soap, a moth-repellent sachet, and a note card from home. This picture is everything knitting related: two pairs of circular needles to make socks, sock yarn, and Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. And lastly, a spinning related picture. No, I don't know how to spin, but I've been wanting to learn and my pal included everything I will need to learn. A handspindle, some gorgeous roving, and Teach Yourself Visually: Handspinning.

I am so excited to dig my paws into everything that she gave me! Thank you so much!

How fun! I don't know exactly what spinning is but I know you'll quickly become a pro! Miss you! :)
