Secret Pal 10 Revealed

Picture this: The attorneys for a divorcing couple are sitting with their paralegals at a conference table working diligently on a proposed property division. Everyone is concentrating on appraisals and blue book values. The discussion was bogging down and the attorney for the petitioner felt the beginning of a monster headache coming on. At that moment, the postman arrived and placed a package on the front desk. The attorney for the petitioner could see the package sitting there and realized it is from her Secret Pal 10. So the attorney did the only thing she could do....
She excused herself, grabbed the package, brought it back to the conference table and opened it. Inside was a treasure trove of knitterly things.......
A Woolly Felted Pumpkin pattern and a Mini Sock Key chain kit..... A gorgeous skein of Fiesta La Luz silk. It was soooo soft.
To-Futsie Sock Yarn derived from a very interesting fiber base....
It contains a fiber that is made from shrimp and crabs shells! The attorney laughed at such an unlikely source of fiber.
She next discovered a lovely handmade felted notions bag from Nepal.....
.....with four adorable sheep buttons hidden inside.
A sheep tape measure...
...and this beautiful merino roving from Matahari Spinnery.
Two Balls of DiVe Merino Wool in the Autummo colorway. The attorney envisioned a scarf pattern in lace to go with a beautiful silk blouse she owned....
As each successive item was pulled from the envelope, the attorney happily shared her new treasures with the paralegals and the other attorney. She was met with blank stares and a polite nod. Obviously her audience had never been introduced to the joys of fiber.

The final item in the package was this clever card. Inside, the attorney discovered that her Secret Pal was also an attorney from St. Paul, Minnesota named Amanda, http:/knittinkninja.blogspot.com/. With a smile, the attorney closed the card, repacked the package and got back to work.

Thank you, Amanda.

Oh, yes, I do admire your guts! Lovely stuff. Did the negotiations go any faster with the prospect of so much beautiful yarn to play with?

Timing such as that can only be a gift from the Infinite Is. You must have some seriously good karma.

That is a totally killer package!!! That Tofutsies sock yarn was in my very own hands in a different colorway not three days ago, so I'm interested to hear about your experience knitting it up.

You have a sincerely wonderful secret pal.

Ahhh! What a lovely tale...and what a great package!! So brave of you to reveal the contents of the package with all of those muggles in the room! It could have gotten uncomfortable.....:)

I'm so glad you liked the package! And I think it's hilarious that you interrupted a meeting with opposing counsel to show them what REALLY matters. Fiber!
