I haven't taken a picture of the stuff I got from angil. I just moved and I'm still getting my stuff together. Angil is an awesome swap partner

Hi everyone! 

I haven't taken a picture of the stuff I got from angil. I just moved and I'm still getting my stuff together. Angil is an awesome swap partner

Oy.  Moving.  Poor thing.  I think next time I might just drag my stash and essentials (spinning wheel, clothes, etc) outside and either: a) light the place on fire, or b) sell the house and non-stashy items together Wink

Anyway, I got a nifty package from cmc_aust today Cheesy

Here it is, a sheepy tea cozy (in use, hehe) and 2 oz of lace-weight silk/merino yarn:


I am mad in love with the tea cozy (I'm a complete tea hound, I admit it Wink) and just need to figure out what to do with the yarn now Grin   Thank you, cmc_aust!

Hey all, I'm back from vacation and I had a pleasant surprise when I got back!

From Freshchck I got not one but two skeins of yarn!!!  They are fabulous merino and a merino-silk blend.  I absolutely love them!  Kim, the purple is not pastelly at all!!  Along with the yarn came a beautiful glass bead necklace and two packages of glass beads.

I'm so spoiled!!  Thank you thank you thank you!

The whole gang


Merino silk blend

Necklace and beads


THANKS SO MUCH!!!

I got it, I got it!  My yarn from cmc_aust!  It's a beautiful orange 3 ply wool!  Check it out!



And three scented bags (smells like lavender) which I've already put into my stash of roving and yarn and one in my closet.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

It's been awhile, but I made something out of my swap yarn! Excitement abounds. I made a panta out of my yarn from a pattern from Fyberduck:

I had a picture of me wearing it, but I accidentally deleted it. Probably just as well actually. It's nice and comfy to wear.
I still have to think of what else to do with the yarn though...I keep trying to make scarves, but I think the yarn just doesn't want to be a scarf...

Yaaaay! I received from froggyfibers - thank you, LaRhanda!
A couple skeins of gorgeous, colorful yarn, a two-ply with purple and a single-ply:

And another of the inside of the awesome knitting tote/needle roll that she sent!

Thank you!

A needle-roll knitting tote??  What a cool idea!  (and pretty yarn, too, of course Grin)

Aaand, this swap is officially finished!  *dances with joy*  Thank you, everyone for participating!

I'm glad you liked it and sorry again about not being a "master seamstress."  Grin
