I arrived home from work tonight and found a package from my SP10 Pal awaiting to be opened. I was so excited! She also revealed herself and I was so happy to meet her. I had been searching the verrry loooong list of SP10 participants to find out or try to guess who my secret pal might be. I had taken some tidbits of clues from her emails to search different blogs to find her. I had even found a blog that showed pictures of the very same stitch markers that I had received from her. I have to say she put together some really awesome packages and I enjoyed her emails! She is very much a more experienced knitter than I and was very helpful to me. She even wrote two sock patterns for me to adapt to my footie fetish! (One footie almost finished!)

The reveal package contained not one, but two books by Ann Budd. These are books that I have coveted from my friend Ragged's collection. I am thankful to my Pal and admire her generosity. It has been a genuine pleasure. ~THANK YOU!

I also have been knitting some items from another book given to me by my SP10 Pal, "One-Skein Wonders". I have knitted a wash cloth and plan to knit more for my daughter to take to college. I have also finished this catch-all bowl for her to use to catch all her loose change that she thinks won't come in handy in college! Ha!

Ok, I confess! I can't stand it anymore! I've been trying to figure out the identity of my SP10 pal before that person actually reveals. I have been going through the SP10 list, one by one, reading blogs and websites to try to figure out my special person. At one time I thought I had figured it out and had bookmarked the page. Now I can't seem to find it. I just wanted to see if I was right. I love to try to figure things out. I am quite sure I have no clue whatsoever who it is much less make it through that very long list of wonderful knitters! I strayed many times from my quest of blogs and websites to the links from their favorite knitting blogs, sites and friends. You see the list on the SP10 don't you? That list plus all the links each one of those sites have that are related to knitting combines a great deal of knitters with presence on the net. I'm amazed! Just think about it! It's an amazing network!

One of my latest works in progress: Green Gable not so green!

I know I missed the deadline for posting about my works in progress but I thought I would go ahead and post about mine anyhow. It was kinda nice digging into my project basket. I found several things that I thought I'd misplaced or lost! It was great! I also realized that I had fewer projects on the needles than I had thought. That was a great feeling.

The booga bag was started back last Sept/Oct and what's been
completed on it so far was probably done the first two days of the beginning.

This sweater was started last November. It is a really easy pattern
from Vogue. I started it when the Grey's Knit Along
began and when I realized it was going to be too small
for the intended recipient (me), I kinda gave up on it.
I didn't know anything about gauge and still
don't. But I am going to frog this and try something else.

This baby sweater was started back in
January for a friend of mine who was
having a baby due in April. The baby
girl has been born, around the first of
April and here the gift sits, with an
unattached sleeve.
