14 pounds of yarn?!! Holy cow. Now I've got serious swap anxiety, mine was 13.8 or somewhere there abouts and it wasn't yarn. Yikes! I'm also absolutely giddy and dying to know what 14 pounds of yarn goodies looks like. I LOVE that it's pratical stuff too. My mom's always told me I'm boring with my love of pratical gifts. It's great you ladies understand.
Our pastor was talking about gifts this morning and asked if anyone had ever received practical gifts for birthdays or Christmas..like it was a bad thing! I LOVE practical stuff! The occasional bit of frivolity is fun, but you just can't beat having a need met in a gift. I got a nail art set for Christmas and I haven't even opened it yet (I'm not sure I ever will ), but the heating blanket from my hubby has gotten tons of use as have all the practical kitchen/bathroom things I've gotten in the last few years.
I'm looking forward to seeing all these packages! So many good ideas in the gallery from the last round and from this round already!
