Hi, all...got a couple of questions, if you can help. Smiley I am in the middle of a swap, and my partner is a knitter, which I know very little about, being in the beginning stages only. I want to get her some yarn, that she will love, that is hard for her to get (she's in England, I'm over here in Australia), and I really don't know what. I am looking at a budget of $40, and would like to get enough for at least a small project. Anyone have any ideas?? I've had a peek on google, and Etsy, but frankly, I am totally lost, and ANY help will be appreciated!!  Grin

Thanks!

Ooh, thanks, you guys, they look great!!

Now, can anyone tell me, is one 100g skein enough to send (they all say one is enough for a pair of socks), or should I get at least two, to not limit her hugely??

Thanks!
