I can't believe I missed the gallery so far!! (how many times do I say that, honestly?  Like every time... oy...) I'm not looking yet though, I'm going to share first, because my epic package came from .:doll face:. today!!
Let me say that she packed this gift so beautifully. It was all wrapped in tissue, and labeled so I knew what category each fit into.
First, the thing that made me SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!  I nearly fell off the bed when I ripped open the paper. Something Dotted:  THRUMMED MITTENS!!!!!!!!!!!  i won't be cold this winter!


Something 'M': Squishy Merino yarn!

Hi all!  I have this morning received a fantastic box of goodies from my lovely swap partner, and the brilliant swap organiser, Kayrun.  Photos will follow this evening - I'm off out to lunch with my partner who has a day off, and then back to photograph all the things.  Thanks so much, Karen!

Hi All!  As promised, here are the wonderful things Kayrun sent in my swap package!

Something Local:  a zip pouch and a reusable shopping bag from her LYS. 



Something Green:  Dollar bill origami (a heart and a ring) - brilliant!  Plus green (and other) tea, which I will certainly enjoy!



Something Hard:  A lovely cabled washcloth - Kayrun knows I don't do cables!



Something Recycled:  Some lovely, pretty envelopes made from doilies and notecards.



Something Funny:  A knitted broomstick bookmark which I love! 



Something beginning with M:  A cute minion toy (love despicable me), and some beautiful yarns from malabrigo (or as I pronounce it in my head malabriggio).



Something dotted:  Some lovely Laurel Burch cats fabric, which I absolutely love, and a plastic grocery bag holder/dispenser, which is great, and I'll get a lot of use out of!



And last, but by no means least, Sender's Choice:  Some beautiful blue and beautifully soft fingerless mitts.  The are a little big for me, but they fit my partner, Stewart, perfectly, so it saves me having to knit him a pair of mitts!  Also, he loves them!

Also, some Mexican hot chocolate, a lovely crochet hook and some lovely purple yarn.




Thanks so much Karen, I absolutely love everything!

What pattern did you use for the fingerless mitts Kayrun?

It's a lovely package! I love the broomstick bookmark, my daughter would love that! How do you do the bottom of it? The handle looks like it is I-cord, is that right?

Yes, it's cool isn't it!  I've made one before for a friend, and it's fairly easy.  Yes, the broom handle is an icord.  There's a pattern for it on Ravelry:
