I'm a moron in that I never did reveal the mysterious mysteries of my secret pal.
It's Knitting Sunshine! Just a brief glance at her blog will show you how incredibly talented she is. Her stitch markers are a wonder (yep, I'm still using mine, don't know if you saw them or not on my Mistake post...btw, I'll leave it and do some manipulation with a tapestry needle or sumfin.), she has yarn for the selling (*so tempted*) and is gorgeous to boot.
Thanks so much, you've been a total awesome Secret Pal!
P.S. Borders ditched all their lovely chai in favor of a new franchise known as Seattle's Best. I don't know about you, Seattle, but Oregon Chai is mud next to Border's DeCaff Chai. I'm in love with that stuff (yes, decaf...you can't knit and twitch at the same time, it don't work). And now it's gone. *weep* I hate you Borders.
