I received last week from the amazing laminathegreat.

She sent me some great stuff!!! I wanted to make socks and had never done so before.  She sent me a detailed sock tutorial, some really nice yarn, and some cheap stuff to start out with.

The ball all wrapped up:

The yarn and tutorial:

All the crafted stuff: 2 knitted gnomes, a HUGE knitting needlle roll case, 2 felt wizard/gnome dolls, some stitch markers (one with an owl! I heart them), a paper bead multi-strand necklace, and a cool brown coaster.

The non-crafty stuff: 3 types of tea!!!, a giant chocolate frog, 2 packs of sweethearts, some sock-shaped point protectors, some dpns, a needle sizer, 2 cute buttons (I eat carbs) - I just started a job at a bakery so they're perfect!, some leftover polkadot fabric and some clear glass rounds that I'm going to use for magnets.

Thanks laminathegreat! You were a great swapper! I hope your baby like the booties!!!

The great fish fabric!

They're both wrinkled because I wear them so often!!! Chan G is a great swap partner!!! Thanks again!

I received from magnoliacoffee yesterday and I was positively spoiled!!! I thought the bubble mailer was maybe full of air because I didn't expect to get so much!! I hope my package can measure up!

Beautiful yarn with sparkle spun throughout:

Blue and purple wool:

A big skein of darker blues and purples yarn:

(There was another medium skein of this and a baby swatching skein! So cute!)

Arranged in size from largest to smallest!! The baby skein is so adorable!!!!
