You never forget your first.....

....secret pal! Actually, your first not-a-secret secret pal. (beware: my true knitting nerd may be revealed as you keep reading) You see, way back before our blog, and all the other knitting blogs were sharing their yarny goodness secret pal goodies, I was sad that no one was sending me yarn in the mail. What fun that would be!! So, Pashyknits (my favorite blogging partner ever...and best knitting friend ever) volunteered to be my not-a-secret pal. I sent her a package with lots of goodies (in true SP style). She hand delivered yarn to me (same effect!). We went back and forth like this for awhile. Then we started the blog and I met lots of wonderful secret pals. But, like I said, you never forget your first (Pashy...this is a public blog...be good.....are you reading this anyways?!!).
I bring this up, because two weeks ago during the week of hell (yeap, that's how Rowan and I are referring to it), Pashyknits was going on vacation (to LA!! any yarn?! pics?!) but left a wonderful cheer up message and oh something should be in the mail. Well, look what showed up to work today!!

An Options Needle Set!!! OMG!!! Pashyknits Rocks!!! I still can't believe it. I may now need to get one of these too.

And lace yarn!! Pashy, are we going to learn lace now (love her, but when she wants to learn stuff, she sometimes makes me learn first...remember the magic loop socks?!). This yarn is sooooo gorgeous!!

Seriously, thanks so much Pashy!!! You made my day!!! Tomorrow, pics from Boston! Happy Knitting! xoxo Irishgirlieknits

Fabulous! What a great blog partner!

You can learn lace, it's easy (just remember, do something like Branching Out first so you can count stitches every lace row).

I'm so glad I got to meet you, the yarn crawl was great fun!
