And she reads my blog posts and everything. Woo!
Plus, I am a secret pal. I'm all stoked about this and shopping crazedly. Just another excuse to shop, I guess.
Ms. Secret Pal — thanks for being my Pal!!! Yep, I do know about those hyperbolic planes. Don't know quite what I'd do with one if I made it, however. And I have NO idea what to do with the alpaca. I don't make lace yet, and I'm a little unsure if the alpaca will work for this or not. It's fairly stiff (I think it's probably mainly used in weaving?), but maybe it would be softer as lace, or after washing. I was thinking of using the gold as a carry-along with some laceweight wool in forest green that I already have, and making socks (I think the two together would be close to sockweight). But I would not likely wear them, as I don't really wear warm colors like this gold, so it would be better to make something ornamental, or for someone else. I welcome ideas!!!
