Secret Pal Mokie rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm participating in SP6 through blogspot and got my 2nd gift from my SP, mokie (not her real name) last week. I finally photographed it today, in all its splendor -- and splendor it is! Mokie's choices absolutely delighted me. I was jumping up and down like a kid at Christmas when I opened the box. Here's what she sent me:
  • an American Red Cross Knit Kit for One Pair of Serviceman's Socks (complete with olive drab wool, DPNs, a tapestry needle and a vintage pattern)
  • 6 balls of Knit One Crochet Two Cotonade, in a rich navy blue
  • 1 skein KnitPicks Shadow merino wool, in Lost Lake
  • 1 skein KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud, in Moss
  • 3 skeins Reynolds Rapture, a 50% wool 50% silk yarn, in three lovely shades of green
  • a spool of olive and forest green ribbon with gold metallic accent
  • scrapbooking papers
  • a stamp pad and alphabet and number stamps
  • "Unusual Toys for You to Knit & Enjoy" by Jess Hutchinson
  • "Simply Soft" by Debbie Bliss -- autographed by the great woman herself!!
  • and a fun, funky tote bag to carry it all in

I am completely overwhelmed by mokie's generosity, and can't wait until the reveal so that I can sing her non-incognito praises.

Gosh, Carolyn. I'm glad you like it. Enjoy!! I look forward to see what you make with it.

Best of luck with your leaf-felting. And, by the way, your ribbed scarves are lovely--so perfect.

That's an amazing secret pal! I think I might know who Mokie is, but I won't give it away....
