Thank you, my KR Secret Pal!

And, no, I still son't know who you are as the package arrived today ithout the full customs declaration. All I saw was your address, and Seattle's a large place!

Here's what I received...

Wow! The Koigu KPPPM is beautiful! I know, te photo doesn't do it justice. The colour is much darer than it appears in the picture. Here's a close up. It still looks washed out, but you sort of get the idea.

Thank you, KR Secret Pal!

You know, I looked at the pattern-a-day calendar and oh my! I feel so silly! I had just re-invented the wheel! There is a pattern for an almost identical hat in the calendar to the blue baby hat I had completed on the weekend. And I thought I was so clever too! Oh well, I guess that just goes to prove that coincidences happen.

I started another one of those hats, this time "celia-sized". Last night, mid-way through knitting the hat, my needle broke!

Anyway, I managed to complete it tonight. I used one skein of Patons Totem 8ply yarn in shade 2002.

Oh, and Diana, remember that skein of red mohair you sent me for Christmas? Here's what it became.
I love it, eventhough it was not as lacey as I had hoped. It's wonderfully warm and just the right length to wear under my coat so it doe not get all bunched up. Thanks Diana!

Oh, and I nearly forgot - I have added a recipe for creme caramel to the side bar. Try it, it's beautiful! It took me three or four tries to fine tune the recipe, and I finally got it right. It's most delicious.. mmm.. yummy yum yum!
Oh that wool is beautiful! *makes plans to steal it from Celia when next there!*
I'll try the recipe soon, and I'm sure Moogi will be most pleased with you! Or she might blame you for calories, but meh. As long as she doesn't blame me!!!
cute hat and oohh, such lovely colours on that koigu. (Thanks for dropping by my blog.)
Thats a lovely hat you got there.
You guys wear coats in Sydney ???? Nice work Celia - on both the scarf and hat - I love the hat pattern. We're having our usual Melbourne Indian summer so all my autumn projects are on the backburner as it's too HOT
