I have emailed both my recipients and I have only heard from my SP8 pal. It seems she is one talented lady who spins as well. I enjoy reading her blog and she seems to have the same tastes in yarn, colors and projects, so I don't think that I will be having a problem finding just the right surprises.
I haven't heard from my One Skein Exchange recipient. However, I peeked at her blog, and OMG... I don't think that I will ever be able to top the wonderful yarns that she spins and dyes herself! It will the ultimate quest..... What do you give a person who has everything?!? I do wish that she would respond, so perhaps she could give me a clue on what might be a wonderful surprise.
Both the Pals that have ME have contacted me. They sound as excited as I am, if that is at all possible!
I started browsing a LYS in the hopes of finding a new, scrumptious yarn that I have yet to discover, and indeed, I did happen upon one that had eluded me. Have you ever touched Debbie Bliss' Silk? It was pure heaven! I am such a sucker for the soft stuff. It was a BIT pricey, but my mind churning all the possible projects that one or two skeins could make. Ummmm. I think that my OSE might be getting one of these! What do you think? Would it be a good choice?
