As promised, here are the pictures of the package I received from thewench


My new project tote.  How cute is this?  If ever I have a bad knitting day, this baby will remind me what I am knitting for in the first place.   Cheesy  I really needed another tote too.  I only had one and I was a bit worried about wearing it out too quickly, because it was also received in a swap.  Lucky it and this new one are both super strong.  Cool  Close-ups to come.


Lots of Sugar'n'Cream (not all pictured), because it is not available in Oz and I am yet to find a local substitute (I have really tried though).  I dare say I had made it quite obvious that I was after this stuff Embarrassed.


Chocolate stitch markers.  Yummo!!! I keep sniffing them and expecting to smell chocolate  Roll Eyes 'cos they look so darned real  Grin  These are an extra thoughful inclusion for a heap of reasons.  They fit over extra large needles (much bigger than the rest of my collection), I am rather fond of mini poly clay food and I had said not to send me any chocolate because of the hassle with customs.  So I got chocolate anyway, how sweet is that?  Oh, and did I mention I love chocolate?


A cute transfer, the likes of which I have never seen, it is fuzzy.  Smiley


Fitted Knits!  OMG, I couldn't believe it.  I could not possibly be more spoilt.  This baby was the book that was on top of my wish list, how did thewench know that?  I have no idea how, but I love it.
Thank you   KissI have no idea what to knit first, as there are very few designs in here I am not considering.  Roll Eyes

I have misplaced the pic I took of the cute little Orange County magnet I got too.  That is probably OK for now, as I have overloaded you all with pictures anyhow.  I'll be back to post it up soon-ish, with more of my cute tote as well.   Cool The back has quotes on it, and warrants a little more showing off.

Thanks again to my thoughtful swap partner for really hitting the mark here.  Kiss

Hey, I think it would be neat if we all posted pics here of what we make with our new yarn Smiley I know it might be some time, since we all probably have tons of WIPs, but it would be fun to see what everyone comes up with.

I like that idea frenchnewwave.  I think it would be very satisfying, especially so for the spinners and dyers.

I'm up for this idea, I'm thinking of making a hat from the 2 skeins of multi-colored yarn bu tnot sure what to do with the silk or hand-dyed wool.
