Valentine Swap Ravelry

My package from Fatema came today. It was shipped at the beginning of February and has been missing til today. It was a lovely package. Four skeins of an alpaca/merino yarn in a pretty color called berries. It is really pretty and soft. She sent coffee, tea, a mug, the cutest salt and pepper shakers that nestle together. Some yummy candy and a knitting magazine from the UK. It was a really nice package. Thank you Fatema.

Defeat the Winter Doldrums Swap

I got my package from my pal Diane today. It is one of the most thoughtful packages I have received. A beautiful wash cloth and a scrubby knit from organic cotton yarn. Very soft and the colors are really pretty. Yummy smelling soap from Alaska.I really like all the local items she included, North Pole Alaska Santa's blend coffee and Alaska Wild Tea. I can't wait to try these out. She sent yarn, yummy yarn. I have been wanting to try out the Lion Brand Organic Cotton. She sent the pattern she used for the cloth, some chocolates and a gift certificate to iTunes. How cool is that. Thank you Diane for being a great pal.
