Fall Yarn Swap Package #1


I got the first package from my Fall Yarn Swap partner! She did a fantastic job!
She sent me Color Sense from my Amazon wish list, which I will use for inspiration when dying sock yarn. I think it will also come in handy for a couple of fair isle projects I have in mind, but I don't want to use the colors used in the patterns.
She also sent me some Trekking XXL from my Loopy Ewe wish list! Seriously, I probably have 8 or 10 skeins of Trekking on my wish list, along with 20-25 other yarns, but this is the yarn I wanted the most! It is color #189, in case you wanted to know, and is a beautiful combination of red, blue, green, and purple, with a touch of gold. Click on the link to the Loopy Ewe, their picture is much easier to see than mine.
Also in the package were some size 1 DPNs, some locking stitch markers, point protectors, and some green apple mints in a cool little tin with a knitting girl on the lid! I've been meaning to pick up a little pill box to keep in my purse since I have to take decongestants, antihistamines, and ibuprofen almost every day now, and I think this would be perfect once I use all the mints! And much cuter than some generic looking pill box! OOHHH - or maybe a stitch marker box!!
Thank you Swap pal!
