Swap Knitting

As promised, all three of my swappers received their packages today so I can show you what I sent.  First of Daniela really went all out when I was the member of the month in the dancing dishcloth swap, so I wanted to send her a really special package:

In addition to her square, I sent a co-ordinating skein of yarn, some flying sheep stitch markers, some bamboo yarn, a jersey girl chocolate bar, and a half a pound of coffee from my favorite knitting meet up.

Then I was in a square and seed swap.  My swappee had mentioned bears and deer were a problem, and she really wanted to grow some herbs:

So I sent  2 herb growing kits - complete with container,  gloves, a garden themed pad set, a clay earthworm that changes color when it's time to water, a watering can pick, more coffee and chocolate.

FInally I was in a hockey fan swap with a fan who rooted for 5 different teams!  So I made her mitts that she can mix and match to get the team colors of the team she was rooting for that day ( after I mailed it I was slightly worried she might not see that as funny but see it as stupid)

She had listed her fav yarn colors as green/blue,autumn colors - this yarn is predominantly blue and green and is called autumn!  She doesn't drink coffee or tea (gasp) so I sent a penguins water bottle ( they are one of her teams)  she likes chocolate covered pretzels, so I sent her 3 from Gertrude hawk, penguin pencils and because she listed crosby as one of her fav players - a crosby card & penguin zamboni.

You Should Smell Like Lemon

You are honest and real. You don't shy away from being yourself, even if it's a bit hard to swallow.

You are refreshingly truthful and direct. You do have flaws, and you don't even try to hide them.

You are happiest when you are around people who truly get you. It takes a while for you to make a stranger a friend.

You have a very unique personality. You have a dark sense of humor that only certain people get.



  1. Wow! You are a wonderful swap partner. I love the tulip design; your knitting really shows it off nicely.

  2. You are a great swap partner. The square and seed swap is that swap in ravelry?


I've gotten rid of the word verification for posting comments. To tell the truth, I have trouble reading the new stuff they are using. Feel free to disagree, but spammy or obnoxious comments will not go up.
