Ooh ooh ooh! These are great packages! Shocked

I think I have a problem. Just when I thought I was finished, I was struck with the best inspiration for one of the items. Dang it, why can't I just be happy with something? I already am having a hard time parting with it as it is! Sorry KathleenAlice, but I just can't send your stuff yet...I still have time right? When's the deadline again?

Hmm, seems likes it been forever (ok just a week and a half) since i mailed out so i just checked the po and my partners package is being cleared in customs.  Oh my, I don't know how much longer I can take waiting to find out if she likes her stuff or not.  I hate this part of the swaps.

I received my package of yarny  Grin goodness from lapoli today! Thank you so much! I adore each skein & they even smell divine-what wool wash did you use? I love love love each skein! Thank you for the time & thoughtfulness you put into each one. The colors are perfect & I can't stop fondling & smelling it.
My Favorite is this "April Spring" wool hand painted by lapoli.

Stunning Wool & Tencel

Beautiful Lilac wool/mohair

I'm off to find some patterns worthy of this beauty.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

I <3 april spring, too.

My partner hasn't gotten around to posting pictures, so at least let me share the yarn I sent arwena.


The green only, the other two are for something else.  Roll Eyes

It's is a two ply, one ply is dyed tussah silk done on a drop spindle, since that's the best way for me to be sure of evenness in thin (well, any) yarns.  The other ply is a combination of yellow-green dyed cotswald and emerald green dyed mohair, sparking icicle (I <3 sparkling icicle!), and merino) blended on a drum carder.

I GOT MINE I GOT MINE!!!  Grin  Grin

Thank-you so much Kathleenalice, It's all completely scrumptious!

Hehe, she went with an ala carte menu theme...

Here's the Menu:



All 3 courses laid out:



The full color book of patterns for small one skein or less projects - LOVE the title!:



The whole shebang:



and one more close up for the hell of it!  Tongue



I wish I had my fancy schmancy camera to show you the truly yummy goodness in proper close ups.  Grin I've been scheming all afternoon over what I'm gonna make first!

Kathleenalice you so totally rock! *hugs*!!
