OOOOO and Ahhhhhh! I love that Miraggio yarn! What lovely treasures! Good idea for that doily! Have a great day and stay cool! (I'd love to join a Secret Pal but have no idea how or where to do it.) Would you be willing to start one here?


You have a great SP.

Love the doily! I guess I'm on a mission for all knitters and crochters to make one.


Lots of beautiful presents! Lucky you! Hmm. That Aussie brand of yarn looks fun, I might have to do some research online about that!

You can't throw away that gorgeous center piece. That stuff blows me away... I love the pillow idea :)


the doily (doilee??) would make a wonderful pillow-topper.


Margaret - As far as I know, the knitter's SP program is still going strong - they are on the 5th round now. Although I've heard that it might be becoming a little too big & impersonal these days. However, if you search for it or click on someone's blog button, I'll bet you could find info on round 6.

Hosting one is a nice idea, but it's a thankless job (there are always people who renege on their end of the deal) and I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. :)

In fact, I think I'll be taking a SP break after this one at C'Ville. I feel like I've really been fortunate with the pals I've received & don't want to push my luck! ha!

Vera - I'll join your bandwagon - Doilies Rule! (Someone needs to make a button!)

Dani - if you find a closer supplier than Australia for Miraggio, be sure & let me know! :)

Thanks, Kim - I'll have to get busy & sew up a pillow!


Aaahhhh! to much to comment on. Lets just say I'm totally jealous of those fabulous gifts from your SP(WOOOOWzers) and the bundle of yarn from Nat is an awesome colorway.


Glad to hear the yarn arrived safe and sound! I am just chuffed to hear how much everyone likes the Mirragio! i will work out some links for you...
