These pictures don't do justice to the items MoonLightbliss made for me, but I finally found a corner of the house with sunlight this afternoon. Too much rain the past few days!

Overview of everything.

Two (much needed) iPod covers. One is blue felt with sequins, the other is dark purple with a heart applique. Using the purple one right now.

Three bars of soap - 1 chocolate, 1 oatmeal, 1 chamomile. They smell wonderful. Hard to decide which to use first...

Two knitted stuffies - one fish, one mouse. My 10 year old brother watched me open the package, he wasn't thrilled with anything until these.. and I haven't seen them since. Boys!

And a little bag filled with various jewelry. A wire wrapped sea glass necklace, a set of earrings - shrinky dink material, two bracelets - one is buttons and the same type of stuff as the earrings (put that one on immediately), the other is circle/oval glass beads.

New iPod Cover!

My package just got here from laminathegreat and I am in love!! Lamina is a fabulous swap partner and a very talented spinner! I received the most beautiful skein of chocolately brown alpaca, an adorable handspun and handknit knome, and some delicious cafe mate that my bf has already tried out and loved. What a fabulous first swap experience. Thank you so much to bloocanoe for organizing Grin

sorry for the jumbo pic, I was trying to get a good detail shot of the yarn.

Awesome work everybody!  This is my favourite part of swapping, seeing what everyone else got too! Cheesy

Yaaayy!!  I recieved my BOX of goodies from FrewFrew today!  She sent me such great stuff!  I'm going to have to think of some special things to make with the yarn.  Without further ado...


Everything together:
4! Skeins of yarn, a set of circular bamboo needles (now I just need to learn how to use them!), and a cool row counting bracelet!

Lavender Yarn - I like this colour a lot!  I want to make something really cool out of this - but I'm afraid to mess it up!

Hot Pink!  I think this will make an awesome pair of wristwarmers.  Smiley

Teal yarn - you can't tell much from the photo, but it has sparkle to it!!  Yay for sparkles!

SILK yarn!  This is definitely my favourite from the bunch and will have to wait for a really special pattern to come along.

Last, but definitely not least,

The awesome row counting bracelet!  Ok, honesty time; being the new knitter that I am, please explain how I use this?  I've been making wristwarmers (to learn how to knit in the round, with 4 needles), and it's hard for me to match them length-wise, so I'm guessing that's what this is for...) I wanna use it now now now!!

Thanks again FrewFrew!  I love everything!  My mom's coming over to have dinner tonight, and she's going to be so jealous!

OK, feeling some swap anxiety here... the swap description was for one skein of handspun, right?  Undecided
