Secret Pal Stuff

Well, I read my secret pal's profile yesterday when I got home from work, so of course, I couldn't wait to start shopping. My secret pal likes natural fibers and loves green, so i scored some dark green varigated hand dyed alpaca, should be enough for a pair of socks or a nice scarf. I also made some green-and-white polkadot glass stitch markers for her. I hope she likes them.....Jen (don't mind the obligatory cute kid pic)
