Secret Pals ROCK!

So on Saturday just after I woke up I went down and checked the mail and I had a card waiting for me to say I missed my mail like a fool and had to wait until MONDAY! to pick it up. How could I wait all saturday and sunday knowing there was a goodie waiting to be picked up from the postoffice that was from my secret pal???? But I behaved and I waited and I slept in this morning. OOPS! I had plans of going down at 7am to pick it up but couldnt until 9 when I woke up. haha.. Actually turned out to be 10 by the time I got it becuase I had to run to the store first... :)
Anyways.... I went in the pouring rain becuase I wanted to know what was there so bad and I picked it up!! :)

On my screen those colours do look pretty much the same, lovely shades of purple and pinks.
There is a basic toe up pattern to follow as well which I will just do a simple plain sock with these just to show off the beautiful colours on it! :)
THANK YOU SECRET PAL... YOU ROCK!!! :)

And on a side note heres the progress so far on my sweater, planning on getting it finished for xmas. :)

I promise its not that dirty looking!!! HAHAHA Its plain white but I had to play with some settings to try and bring out the cable pattern. The rest of its boring to look at so thats why I just cropped it down. :) But yep Im trying to get it sorted for xmas so that I have something nice and comfy to wear that means I gotta get knitting and quick!! :) Actually its going super quick on its own! I love knitting with big needles sometimes! :D (mind you I do still like small needles but sometimes a big is better)

Whoooo hoooo, gorgeous sock yarn from your Secret Pal!

Thanx for posting a pic of your latest sweater, I love the cable, it's so pretty, it's going to look stunning.

PS Watchers by Dean Koontz is my absolutely fave book of all times - must remember to dig it out and read it again.

Take care xx

OOO - I've forgotten how pretty the yarn is. I like the sweater. BTW, I've already done the 4 things and where in Indiana did you vacation?
