No Sheep Pal: You Wool Love This!

No Sheep Pal was a two month swap that came to an end in July. My lovely pal Dominique (from Belgium) was a great! She sent me some cotton/linen for June and for July she has sent me a cotton/Lyocell Seacell in my favorite colors! The brand is Phildar - Phil Thalassa and it is antibacterial and allows the skin to breath. Along with the yarn she sent me 2 Lambic beers (very Belgium in deed). Beer is not my favorite thing so in hopes of becoming a more well rounded 'drinker' I tried a Lambic thinking fruit and beer how can it be wrong and it wasn't. The only tiny problem is the cost...
These are delicious and a great end to a meal with perhaps dessert? (just an idea, not like I'm biased or anything).

Thank you so much Dominique (currently on a knitting cruise vacation, how cool is that?). It was great getting to know you and have you as my pal. I do hope your pal treated you as well as you have done me. Many thank yous! Now what to knit with this yummy yarn?

A Lambic beer? I've never heard of that. I discovered the Apple Cider Beer a few months ago and it's definately yummy. Where can one find this Lambic stuff?
