I didn't order this...

...but I am certainly happy to receive it! I returned home from work today, checked the mail, saw the package of KnitPicks yarn I had ordered (hey, they were having a sale), and then saw another package. It was from Elann.com, a site I had visited but from which I had never ordered. Intrigued, I opened it up to find this:




















600 yards (!) of 50% alpaca/50% fine merino laceweight in the loveliest plum-y shade! I can only assume that I have my generous Secret Pal to thank for this! I am so excited to use this - I'm always seeing these lovely lace shawls that I'd love to knit, so I'm eager to browse through some lace patterns to find the perfect one for this. Thanks so much, SP!

Dude. So I ordered from Elann like three weeks ago and still no yarn (I shipped it Parcel Post - silly me) and you never even ordered anything and got yarn anyway? No fair. :)

Yay! I'm glad it got there, and I'm glad you like it!

THat's so sweet of your pal. I love alpaca. I think you will love knitting with that. It's the perfect color for you as well! :D
