Thank you Secret Pal!

November 18th, 2004 · 11 Comments · Swaps, Yarn

Two posts in one day? I know, I know. But this was too good to wait. What a wunderbar (my dad always used to say that) Crochetville Secret Pal I have! She sent me these four fabulous skeins of Handspun Mohair from Lesotho. It is gorgeous! The label says Super Fluffy and I wish every one of you could touch it and feel it. No, wait, I don’t want that many people touching my yarn, LOL.

Whee! The excitement of thinking about what I might make with it. I love the planning stage of doing a project, thinking about all the different possibilites. Any ideas?

    Ditto: How did your Crochetville pal get a hold of the skeins? Did they go to Lesotho for them?

    …That mohair looks really interesting!

    I found you while browsing for news about Lesotho, I’m particularly interested in textile facilities, and textile production in Lesotho, but there is not much on the internet … would you be able to help me get some up-to-dated info on production, investments, co-operations in Lesotho? or address me to some source of infos?

    Thank you very much in advance

    I agree…a lovely warm scarf.

    Then again, I am in a scarf mood at the moment.

    that is some gorgeous yarn!!
    thinking of a scarf out of this makes me itchy – it would be beautiful, though…. hmmmm, i think a beautiful bucket hat – great contrast with your hair :)

    Wow Donna from Lesotho !
    Now I will have to send you something form Benin to compete :-) ! (I am leaving tonight for a two year fellowship).
    I think the yarn would make a lovely scarf, and a warm hat…or a stole maybe? Anyway have fun with it!
