The Final Package!


THANK YOU, venutian_beauty!!

This is my fabulous final package.  There's plenty of goodies here to make me extremely happy.  It's been a fabulous swap.  You've done a fabulous job spoiling me.  I love the package of cottons and the yarns, especially the yarn pirate.   The book is great!  My best and I went through it yesterday and ooh'ed and ahh'ed the patterns.  We both got a kick out of your notes.  I loved them the most out of anything I think.

A close of of the tools in my package.  I am totally excited by the new butter bar and the coin thimble.  I have been yearning for one for a while.  I'm tempted to knit or crochet a doily out of the yummy yarn pirate yarn it matches my chair so perfectly.:-)

I wasn't able to get a picture of the cool beaded pattern for socks or the awesome brittany style crochet hook you sent.  (I'm already hookin' with one of them!  ;-))


The stitchmarker she sent.  It's a sheep.  BAAAA!!!

I'm sorry, I didn't post this sooner.  I wasn't able to carry everything home until Friday evening.

I'm so happy you liked everything! :D I had a great time. I hope you can use the sock book and enjoy making many socks from it. :D And I had a great time with the notes throughout. I flipped through after Amazon delivered. It's like having a convo. with you. :D Let me know how that purple an dteal yarn works for you. I just saw it and knew it was new- had to get it for you to try out. :D And I think that the chunky wool would make a nice scarf. I think it would knit up something like Collinette 5 point - see the yarnstorm blog for some really nice ones. She's my hero.

Thanks for being such a cool swap partner - I had the best time buying up stuff for you.

It's a lotion that is more solid. Sort of the consistency of a jellied soap. ;-)
