I know I promised you swap goody pics on Monday - but that was before an unforseen 13 hour day. And a 14 hour day on Tue. Which made Wed's 11 hour day feel like a piece of cake! I am now on day 2 of a very necessary 2 day mental health vacation!! (how people handle 2 jobs I have no idea). The delay did have it's benefits though - I had a card in my mailbox that a signature was needed on a package from Canada- my swap package from Chelle!!! So now you can see ALL my goodies from this round of swaps.
My package from Chelle:
There was a Malabrigo sock yarn in Tiziano red, Sockittome in Wild West, stitch markers in red & black :) awesome colors right? a mini sock/blocker, a tape measure from the Loopy Ewe ( both red) 2 yankee candles - midnight Jasmine and Lavender vanilla, a bath fizzy in vanilla, a Vancouver Olympic mascot plush keychain (now on one of my knitting bags) organic coffee that I am drinking right now, very dark, rich, smoky yummy!, hand lotion from Williams Sonoma in french lavender, and last but definitely awesome - a large Vancouver Starbucks mug and a mug cozy!! Here's a pic of the mug:
Thank you sooo much Chelle!
I was in a Valentine Secret Swap-
A great scarf & pin, 2 hanks of pure silk yarn, a teaspoon, and a great book of patterns with a teapot stitch marker. Here's a closeup of the marker:
A big Thank You and I hope your Valentine's swap package was as wonderful Sarah!!
And finally I was in a swap for Valentine's Day in my squares group. Erin sent me this great package:
A heart illusion cloth, 4 heart coasters ( well used already) , a needle roll in chocolate and green, honeysuckle lotion, a ball of Sugar n Cream in pink/white, a bar of Ghiraldelli'd Midnight Reverie (you guys do know I LUVS dark chocolate right?) ferro roche and reeses peanut butter cups - the picture is missing several reeses due to Angie and I seeing peanut butter/chocolate and the rest is kinda blurry!
Thank you soo much Erin!!
And yes, I have a habit of signing up for too many swaps, but can you blame me? So I've signed up for an Easter Swap that has to go out by March 15. I have what I consider to be the perfect yarn for my swappee and I have bookmarked a pattern to go with it on Rav that I'll send as a gift the day she gets her package. I have a couple extras already ( I kind of pick those up as I go along) I've second guessed the yarn/pattern of what I'm going to make her, so I may change that. I also just signed up for the caffeine addicts spring swap. I find out who my swap partner is this weekend, so I'll be able to start planning that.
