I signed up for the One Skein Exchange a month or so ago, and last month I heard from my secret pal. I also sent an email to the person that I’ll be sending yarn to. The premise of the exchange is to send one skein in June and July, and then in August send something you made from one skein. Yikes! I better start thinking about what I’m going to be sending in August. I haven’t sent my June skein yet – I’m going yarn shopping this weekend, and will pick up something. I thought of raiding my stash, but I just have such a hard time letting any of my yarn go.
Anyway, this week I got the first skein from my secret pal. Nice! This is handspun yarn (2 ply, 70% wool/30% rayon), and beautiful. It makes me realize how far I have to go in my own spinning. Both my secret pal and the person I’m a secret pal to spin – coincidence or are there just a lot of spinners out there?
Thanks, Secret Pal!
