Special Delivery!

Let me introduce you to my new nephew Adam Ryan, born on Mother's Day weighing in at 6 lbs., 2 oz. He was a month early and both he and my sister are doing fine. I went to visit them at the hospital yesterday. He's very tiny and cute. The doctor came in while I was there and said that since he's considered a preemie it's very important to keep him warm at all times. My ears perked up and I realized I better cast on for some baby items. I think I'll make a hat first and then a light weight sweater. We are in SoCal after all and it's the beginning of summer...but doctor's orders!

When I came home the mail had come and there was a package on my doorstep.

My secret pal struck again! Everythink was wrapped just so inside a pretty gift bag. With handmade labels like this one:

Inside there was stash enhancement:

2 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca in color 6275. I've been wanting to try ou this yarn. I keep petting it and squeezing it. It's a nice heathered green with bits of gold. I love it. : )

There was also a pretty handmade card, some skincare products from Crabtree & Evelyn to pamper myself with, some Lemon Dill mix for dip, lemon candies, a photo album, a cat book and a blank card that I can use to send to someone else.

I'd like to send out a sincere thank you to my secret pal!

Adam is so adorable. I love how his hair sticks up. Reminds me of my Sweetie Boy. Looks like your SP really gets you and your likes. Nice alpaca.
