Package In, Package Out
Friday when I got home, I had a package waiting for me from my August Project Spectrum swap partner, Tahlia. I was shocked by her generosity! She sent some sock yarn in wonderful shades of black and gray, some knitting themed notecards, a tapemeasure, stitchmarkers she made herself, a ruler, a cool leather bag to keep the small items in, a mini lunchbox of Boston Baked Beans, Animal Crackers, and some Fogwash Soap, made from lanolin! I love every bit of it Tahlia! Thank you so much, and I hope you're recuperating well from your knee surgery!
I also mailed out my sock knitting kit to my KSKS partner. I won't reveal her name just yet, so I won't spoil the surprise, but I sent two skeins of fingering weight yarn (dyed myself), Cat Bordhi's Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles, Knit Picks circular needles, a Chibi, three bags of coffee from a local company, chocolate covered expresso beans, a postcard of my city, and a custom made bag! The bag has a mock croc bottom and shoulder strap, is very well interfaced so it won't be floppy, and has two pockets inside. I made the pattern up as I went along. I hope she likes it!
