You know ... I love swaps!
Way, way back in December, I signed up for a swap on Ravelry. It was a really neat idea ... simply collect a bunch of your favorite things and send them along to the person you are assigned. We had until Feb. 14th to stalk our people, making sure that our favorites were going to not make them allergic or anything, and we had all that time to collect the things we truly like.
Two weeks ago, I sent my parcel off to the person I was assigned, and last week, the parcel from the person who had me arrived (perfect timing -- I had been sick for a full week, and then this wonderful present arrived!). I am finally getting my life caught up after being sick, and am just now blogging the terrific parcel from griffgirls. I contacted her through PM to thank her, but hadn’t had a chance until now to take pictures of the terrific things I got … I had a terrific pal, and she spoiled me rotten!
She sent a beer bread mix from a company she is a consultant for, a Creative Knitting magazine (the current issue - we don’t get this magazine in my town, so I am really excited to read it!), 2 skeins of Noro (in a totally “ME” colourway - pink, green and light orange … I couldn’t have selected a better colour!), a pattern for a hat knit from Noro (I have never tried that pattern before … so am planning to make me a new hat!), DPN coils for holding sets together, beautiful heart shaped glass stitch markers for larger needles, Burts Bees Lip balm (I have never tried it!), a postcard from her community, a cinnamon tart (for melting and making the room smell nice (my whole package smells beautifully of cinnamon) – (yum!), an audio murder mystery book, A set of bamboo circs, and dark chocolate Lindt chocolates (I adore Lindt … and my hubby doesn’t so I rarely indulge in the blue wrapped Lindt – and now I have a bag all to myself! mwahaha!).
She also made me the cute little bunny (a-freaking-dorable!) – she saw him in my queue on Rav. and knit him up specially for me! Griffgirls is a pretty amazing gifter, and I really would like to thank her (again) for her generous present and for sharing her favorite things with me! Thanks!
