Secret Santa Gift Exchange

January 5, 2011

Hello, friends!

Well, that was a lovely few weeks off! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a safe New Years Eve!!

A few weeks ago, I signed up for Lillyella’s Secret Santa gift exchange.

All of our mail has been delayed for a while now due to our strange weather, so I wasn’t expecting it to arrive before Christmas. But that is just fine with me, I like to drag out gift giving as long as possible. In fact, I’m still waiting on a few things the husband ordered for me from Etsy. That’s the only clue he gave me and it’s killin’ me. I have like 40 pages of favourites over there, so the suspense is almost too much.

Anyways, oh yes, from my secret santa I received the most comfy, squishy hand knitted cowl in easily one of my most favourite colours.

It’s just perfect. So me.

My secret santa is well, a secret, so I can’t tell you where it’s from, but I’m in love with it. Yes, it is possible to be in love with a cowl.

It is made with lovely Madelinetosh Hand Dyed Yarns and I swear it’s the softest thing I’ve ever had around my neck.

I haven’t heard yet if my recipient has received their gift from me. I had hoped they would get it before Christmas, but alas, that is out of my hands.

I love secret gift exchanges with perfect strangers. Don’t you?
