This is definitely my week! You have got to see what my Secret Pal (7) sent me:

Can you believe this? Gorgeous red and black Opal sock yarn (if I hadn’t bought that Sassenach yarn last week this would be the most gorgeous sock yarn ever), Knit Picks Shimmer, lots of chocolate (I think, it disappeared really quickly 😉 ), a Plumeria candle, some Tazo tea (I should make some right now!), Knitting Around by the famous E.Z. (I’ve got to start that Pi Are Square shawl soon!) and yes, you saw correctly, a gorgeous Lantern Moon project bag and extra-gorgeous Lantern Moon dpns!!! Talk about spoiling a person! Thank you so much, Secret Pal!

Of course I had to try out the dpns right away, so I cast on for a pair of Broadripples in my Sock it to Me Esprit. I don’t know how this yarn compares with Fixation but if you screw something up it is really hard to find the stitch to fix it. However, you can’t fault the gorgeous, decadent dpns!
