ha!  I thought so! 
and I'm sorry I forgot to put in about the sweater.  I guess I was just chuckling over the photo and forgot the details!
It is SUPER soft!  AQ, do you know what its made from?  I mean, I'd assume handwash anyway, but do you know what fiber it is?

Unfortunately, I don't. Some of the other samples had tags on them describing the pattern and/or yarn, but this one didn't.

I received today from astormorray! So exciting. I love everything, especially the pink needles and amazingly gorgeous and soft handpsun. The circular needle holder is already being filled up. Cheesy

She used pretty fabric and the coolest pink button closure for my needle holder


She also sent pink straights, pink circulars and some hello kitty cards!


This beaded knit badge has a pin on the back.


She sent me four different handspuns--five skeins! I kinda piled it into a mess for the pic, sorry.


I also got a bunch of knitting magazines, and a pattern for handwarmers she wrote herself. I've already found a bunch of patterns in the magazines I want to make.


I am super pleased with this swap! I would do it again in an instant.

yay!  I was worried for a bit that it was too pink... but then I thought, hey, if you're pinkyswear, likely you would mind!

Yeah, I looked through my buttons when I was finishing the needle holder up, and thought that there would never be a better opportunity to use that big, pink button.   Grin

That handspun looks so yummy! The pink reminds me of either bubblegum or cotton candy. Grin

And the needle holder is so pretty - love the contrasting fabric on the inside.

I got my package from Trocks!  Unfortunatly, we can't seem to locate the one working camera in the house.  I'll take pics as soon as I can, but it contained a wonderful knitting bag in black and red, some awesome yarn, a needle roll in the best fabric I've ever seen (skulls and roses) and some knitting needles with poly clay skulls on the ends. 

Awesome!  Thank you so much!
