First, lots of great cocoa, and some delish biscotti...
Next, the yarn. What swap is complete without the yarn?? Everything in my whole package was color coordinated. It was just so fun to keep unwrapping! Both of these yarns are new to me, and I love trying new things. And I know my pal, Theresa, has a couple of ideas for this yarn as well. I wanted the counter, as now I can have one in my basket at home, and one in my traveling knitting bag. Not good to have to use a scrap of paper for row counting when you're "on the road"! I needed that size of needles, too.Theresa does beautiful bead and wirework, and she made me some fabulous accessories. Would you pull my hair and knock me down to get that great shawl pin away from me?? I lurve it to pieces! And... earrings!
And stitch markers in two sizes. Notice the adorable little knitting charms!
Then, the perfect scissors for my "on the go" knitting. How many times have I reached into my bag and stabbed my hand with my sharp scissors. Well, no more! These scissors have a point protector to keep me from harming myself, and a great fob (notice more knitting charms, and the one turned on its side is a fat little lamb) I've been using them ever since they arrived, and I love 'em!
My only regret about this swap is that it's over. It's been so much fun.
Thank you Theresa for all
the wonderful gifts!
You've been a great swap pal,
and it's been fun
getting to know you!!
