See it?? Don't you want it??

OOOH!  I love the sparklies!  My LYS only has one ball, so no one's bought it Undecided

Oh man... those are some GREAT beads. I love them muchly.

Okay, don't kill me, but I have to say it: cool beads!

We have two packages outstanding, one of which is probably lost in transit, and the other of which is merely in the hands of Canada Post.

I'm going to go ahead and post round 3 anyway. I promised I'd do this like a week ago, but I had another swap that was totally overwhelming me and I needed to whip it into shape!

Round 3 is up!

Alas Canada Post has delivered the lovely BlooCanoe's package to me.  I just got back from vacation so I haven't been able to unwrap it, but I do have some pics of the outside.....

The pattern is branching out, which I keep meaning to try....and I won't make everyone wait to see the insides by knitting the goodies out.....So far I can tell from the outside there are some fantastic candies and chocolates, the BF is lingering around eyeing them...I told him he must wait.  I also spotted some cute hair pins and some tea...I can't wait to unwind this tonight!

Thanks Bloo, the package is fantastic!  sorry I was away so long to delay everyone from seeing the goodies!

Modified to Add the innards of my magic yarn ball of happiness!

There were many, many candies, teas, lip balms, a fantastic maple leaf tatoo, a pocket screw driver (which I am fascinated by), an spca key chain (I love animals), a toy for my kitty (which she loves), an ear warmer for me (as it is supposed to get cold here later this week), oh some lovely hand lotion, and some felted soaps, they are so fantastic, I could smell them the entire time I was opening the yarn ball and wondered what it could be!

Yay! so glad it arrived, gerbilocity!
I have been greatly enjoying the contents of the yarn ball you sent me, so I'm glad you like what I sent you! This was a great swap and you were a fabulous partner.  Grin

Have you hugged your mod today? Smiley

I love that cat toy.  I may just make a shorter one for my bird.  He loves yarn.

I heart Hank McCoy

Hey swappers. When I sent out partners for this round, I also sent out a sort of dissertation I wrote designed to help people understand the swap and beat brain blockage. I'd like to send it out for round 3, but it's on my laptop and my laptop isn't here. Does anyone who doesn't delete PM's still have it, and if so, can you forward it to me? Thanks in advance.

 Ok, so I gave up with the knitting out, it would have been February before I could make my pattern! Still so looking forward to it though! Here's the pics:

 I got these amazing little stitch markers! I love them! There are more, but they are in use  Smiley She also made me the most gourgeous Mirrormask necklace  Grin Also in the picture is a cute, sparkly bracelet. Here's a close-up of th other side of the necklace:

 here's all the little goodies she sent me too. There's Butterscotch lip gloss (mmmmmm), candles, 2 scented highlighters, inscence, little penguin jellies (which I'm so afriad to eat, they're soo cute!), and there was some Herhey kisses, but they got lost... In my belly... There's a great eyeliner pencil and a little pinwheel missing from the picture. My baby sis has hidden the pinwheel!

 She made me a hat to match the pattern (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html) which I love a little too much, I wear it so much:

 And an ultra cute Amigurumi kitty, awwwww!:
