all I can say is "holy cow!!!!"
my partner is fantastic, and she totally spoiled me!!
(in fact, she took on 2 partners, and it's my understanding that she
spoiled both of us!!!)

Sadly, my photo skillz are not the best, but here is a rundown of
the awesomeness.....

a pic of all of the goodies together:

The card she included is so pretty, with a quilled flower on it~

A lovely crocheted scarf (great for this nasty winter weather we've had the past few wks!)
a pair of matching fingerless mitts (I will prob wind up using them inside bec my hands
wind up so cold when I'm typing on the compute in the evenings!)
closeup of the mitt:

Then a colorful mug (did you make this?  it's so cheerful!)

Candy!! (did you realize I have a major sweet tooth??)
Werther's caramel coffee (never tried these, but I'm crazy about this brand)
and Coffee Crisp candy bar....sounds yummy!

Gevalia coffee (haven't bought this before, but my friend raves about it! PLUS I've needed
more coffee lately, so this arrived at just the right time Smiley

FOUR types of hot chocoloate mix

Pocket coffee espresso -- looks really interesting!  you nibble off a piece & pour the liquid
espresso in to your coffee, it appears~  mmmmm

Hazelnut coffee flavoring -- yummy

Hawaiian Hazelnut liquid coffee brewsticks -- another product that's new to me!

geekgirl, you ROCK!!!!
(if you have any other pics, feel free to share.... I'll try to gank some to show off these neat

oh boy!
my partner, alterknitive  (love the username  Smiley sent me a great pkg!!

Here's everything still wrapped so cute-ly :

and here's the loot!!

(once again, my crappy camera doesn't do it all justice, but I'm too cheap to buy a new one,
and too stuck in a rut to learn how to USE a new one!!  LOL)

Here's what I got:
Recycled == the cutest teddy bear you ever saw!  she used a semi-felted wool + mohair sweater &
sewed this darling toy from it!  I think he looks adorable without a face....no worries!

Local == British alpaca yarn in a lovely gray.....can't wait to use this -- thanks!

(the little tags for the rest slipped out during their journey, so plz correct me if I didn't match
them up to the right items!  and feel free to share pics if you took any~)

Letter M == Minion from Despicable Me....love love love him!  You certainly don't seem like a newbie to crochet -- excellent work! (how funny that we both chose to make a minion -- a match made in heaven  Smiley

Funny == evil purple minion.....another adorable character!  thanks!

Green == cute Christmas tree ornaments.....just darling!

Hard == cute teddy bear stitch markers....can never have enough of these!  I seem to be losing
these lately, so you are right on target with these  Smiley

Sender's Choice == the yummiest candy bars on the planet.....curlywurly.....if you have never tried them,
you simply MUST!  and she sent a FIVE pack, folks!  mmmmmmmm

and finally,
Dotted == a cute owl project bag....she persevered through illness to finish this, and it's a super project.  I am thrilled with it!

Thanks a million, Julia!!
It was so much fun having you as a partner!

just made a pair of these for another swap:

and wondered if they would be of any interest to anyone in the Winter Market?
I know there are lots of knitters in this swap, so it's sometimes hard to figure
out what to offer....

well, as I posted in the main thread, I rec'd a fantastic pkg from
my partner, quaggy!!!
Words just can't express how happy I was when I opened it.
First of all, the girl really knows how to wrap a pkg!

and the way she always includes candy to match the letters just ROCKS!
My initials are K.C.G.

K= Kit for making Teesha Moore patches! 
She stalked me and found that I have been wanting to try making these
patches, so with the wonderful supplies & the instruction sheet, I am set!
This just about brought me to tears with her thoughtfulness  Smiley

next we have C = Colorful swiffer covers(how awesome that she can sew these!)
and G = Girly zip pouches (such adorable fabric!!)

PLUS a bonus scrappy bookmark -- love love love it all....
thanks so much, quaggy!!!!

well, well, WELL!!!!

I have been officially SPOILED by my awesome partner, hazelly!!!

I have to say that my camera is very old, so the photos will definitely not
do justice to the goodies my partner sent --
Hazelly, if you have more pics, feel free to share!
eta:  grrrrrrr!  took a couple of cute photos, and doggone camera went on
the fritz, so this was the best I could do at re-assembling the goodies and
re-taking the photo.....hazelly, you'll notice the 2nd bag of cookies never made
it back from the kitchen  (YUM Smiley

My name is Karen,
so here we go:

pkg pre-opening:

and here is post-opening:

K is for Knit Me  (notice the neat packaging with cute little handwritten cards for each part of
the pkg??  Adorbs!)
This is a skein of the softest, most beautiful HANDSPUN yarn -- this would have been sufficient
for the whole pkg!  I know what a labor of love it must be to spin such great yarn!
Thanks a MILLION -- I mean it!

A is for Adorn Me
The cutest hoopla (had totally forgotten this was on my profile faves....so cute!)
and stitch markers that I just love (can't get enough of these....always need more!)

R is for Rinse Me
Wonderful-smelling soap from a local soapmaker who attends her knitting group

E is for Entrust Me
My favorite type of bag, the Japanese knot bag!  And would you believe she HAND-sewed it???
Excellent work!

and finally
N is for Nibble Me --
Luscious cinnamon roll cookies (both iced and uniced) as well as some authentic Turkish Delight
candy.....mmmm mmmm GOOD!!
My dtr and I have already sampled all of the goodies, and
I believe I will have those cookies for breakfast for the next few days; they taste JUST LIKE
cinnamon rolls!

All I have to say is OUTSTANDING!
Thanks for a super pkg, hazelly!!
