First of all everything had a nice little note with it, but check out the paper... not just sticky notes, real neat-o fancy paper!
I got the notecards in a OWS swap, from Mlsocci, IIRC. I asked for small cards to use in swap packages
Then there was a surprise! Only one of a set of arm warmers...
Oh, yeah, well... before I mailed the package, I had the day off from work because I was having a medical procedure done. When I got home that afternoon, I packed up everything so I could mail it the next day. Then dh was in the hospital for 2 1/2 days. After he came home, I was cleaning up my craft area and I found one of the arm warmers! What the
I remembered packing everything after the appointment... oh yeah, they gave me conscious sedation. I guess it hadn't worn off totally when I packed up everything. Almost everything
I checked the tracking on the 2nd armwarmer (mailed asap once I realized what happened) and it's probably arriving today. Lesson learned - do not pack a swap package before the conscious sedation wears off
oh, and they're knitted. The lacy pattern at the wrist is the same lace as the Kiri Shawl
just not stretched out as much.
beaded bracelet/bangle she sent... is that peyote stitch? I never could figure that one out! I love love love the color of the armwarmers by the way!!!
No, not peyote stitch. It's a crocheted bead rope. There's some how-to info here
Then all that fiber! She sent, I dunno how much fun stuff to play with on my wheel! .... And lastly but not leastly, a bad picture of the 4"X4" squares for my craftster blankie... I totally wanted random colors and she went so far as to do some random patterns WHICH I LOVE!
Glad you liked it all.
