joy of knitting #1

I recently took part in my first swap on ravelry, the ‘Sock Yarn from your Stash‘ swap.  My package from my up-stream partner Sandykins arrived from Sweden yesterday.  As if getting a parcel from overseas with sock yarn in it wasn’t exciting enough, she squeezed so much more loveliness into the box
my first swap-box
The yarn is D-i-C smooshy in ‘Into the mystic’ which will be perfect for monkeys or a boteh.  And a heap of knitting things and treats: bath confetti (yay I love baths), strawberry & rhubarb scented candles (mmm), chocolate hearts (yum), Swedish fruit tea (my Swedish friend will be jealous), Christmas decorations (cute), Addi sock needles (yay), knitters’ thimble (ideal for colour work which I am into right now), little tape measure (fits perfectly into my out-and-about knit-kit), needle holders (perfect to help me keep all my w-i-ps tidy) and a card with a cute sheep magnet on.  Thank you, Sandy xx
