Secret Pal 6 has finished and I had a great spoiler! Remember this?
A few weeks ago I received this:
I was bad and I never showed you that one but it’s all purple and it’s all fiber to be spun. Yummmy.
My final package arrived on Monday and included this:
The snowman is mine but the book! And the yarn! Knit Picks shimmer and Sally Melville’s new book right off my Amazon.com wish list. Woot!
My pal was Cecily and she was great. She sent thoughtful gifts that she researched and knew I would enjoy. Thank you, Cecily. I’ll be working on your purple socks very soon!
My spoilee was Cheryl and I had lots of fun sending her packages. Turns out, she knew who I was from the get go, but she never let on. I’m hoping now she’ll be a regular reader of the blog.
While I had a great experience with Secret Pal 6 I know that in such a large group people do get burned. I don’t really understand how this happens, though. I mean, really! You sign up for this program and you participate. The end. You don’t sign up and then not send anything. Or not spend enough. Or whatever. And yet, there have been posts all over the place on the Secret Pal 6 blog, asking participants to let their hostesses know if they never received anything or if they received gifts that weren’t up to the standards. I think it’s terribly rude and I can’t imagine dropping the ball like that.
End of rant.
It’s unseasonably cold around here today. It makes me want to say:
And that’s all the news from Lake Woebegone.
