SP 11 package number 2


How exciting, my package arrived on Saturday, full of great things. The theme was miniatures and my pal sent me a mini hand cream, mini chocolates, which will be saved until I get weighed on Thursday, a little book of handbags and some soap. AND some great Noro silk garden lite, which has already been put to good use.
Here is what it has already become (or becoming)

It's the Argosy scarf from Knitty. Download the pattern free here. I love it, it's knitted on the diagonal, but is a straight scarf. Much to the confusion of my family.
I hope my secret pal approves. Of the scarf, not the confusion. A close up for you of the beautiful square pattern...

The colours in the Noro look beautiful on the scarf, I think!

I knitted it at bingo today. My mother in law is staying for the week. That's why I was at bingo.

Anyway, it's a quick knit, so FO pictures soon. A break from my caramel belle, but I may do a little of that tonight.

You are soooo lucky, I have been disappointed as I have not heard, nor gotten one package from my SP11, my leader tells me she has told her I will get one big one???? No communication...but your package is beautiful....
