I Have the Best Sockret Angel!

I had a difficult time owning up to the fact that my Sockret Pal wasn't.

But the Sockret Pal MOM's are the best. Because they sent me Cary as an angel and today in my mailbox I discovered TWO boxes - just LOOK!
These are stitchmakers from Cary's daughter, and soap from her own lavender (plus a lavender bag!)

And here is everything - the yarn is from Brooke (and is called Anemone, but I swear it strongly resembles a lavender field, don't you think?), then there are patterns for socks (toe-up and lace from Cary's friend Peggy) and the Vogue Knitting Socks Two, a set of Fiddlesticks bamboo needles in my favorite size (1), the cutest Meezer notepad, a lovely little tin (the soap came in that) with a sock on it, and then a specially made photo card from another of Cary's friends...

I've been reading Cary's blog for awhile now, and I find it full of the warmth that's so obvious in her note to me, and this wonderful gift. If you haven't visited, please do, and like me, I know you'll add her to your bloglines.

Thank you Cary. Like I said, when I think of the word angel from now on, the next breath will be, "Cary!"

Very lovely package! I guess good things really do come to those who wait. :-)

I'm sorry your swap didn't work out, but you sure got a nice angel to make it up to you. Swap angels are the best!

Oh, Sallee, I am sooo glad! And bless Brooke's heart for creating such lovely yarn! I knew as soon as I saw the description that it was meant to be for you!

And the kitty notepad?!? I thought of Meezer and you as soon as I saw it! Does Meezer like it???? LOL!

Hugs, Cary

Isn't Cary THE best! Her lavender soap and sachets are just divine! I'm happy you love your yarn as well :)

Have a blessed week!

What a great angel you have!!!

All the lavendery goodness goes right along with the Hidcote shawl that I know you're dying to start.

Hey! I was just blog hopping, looking at knitting ideas when I saw your gifts from Cary and then I saw a familiar photo...that's one of my cards! :o) I enjoyed looking around your blog. I have been here a couple times and I am going to bookmark it to come back and look again.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
