Thanks, ladies! Blushingbluegrass, I'm so glad you like it all!!

The cowl was just a basic half-double-crochet strip done with the some brushed boucle (I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong...) yarn. I normally hate boucle yarn because it is lumpy and hurts my fingers after a while... But, this was so soft and since it was brushed and fluffy, it reminded me of fur. But, yeah... Its just a crocheted strip that I twisted at the end to get the infinity twist to it. Just make sure its long enough to not be tight with the twist before you stitch it up Smiley

Here is my package from MrsKristina

She sent not 1 but 2lbs of local coffee and then 2 extra little packs I can take to work with me.

An adorable spiral scarf out of soft fleece and a fleece rice hot bag to snuggle up with....came in handy already my feet are always cold when I get into bed so this helped warm the bed up!

I am glad all yours arrived in 1 piece...maybe the biscotti not so much? looks like they broke up a bit?

The tea pot though was the redesign I saw it in an antique store so instead of sending my initial intended drink accessory I made the teapot cozy out of wool with the small tea pot I thought was adorable

Hope it gets a lot of use!

OH Luckdragon!!!!!  That is too bad that the PO is screwy and lost your package.  I love the mugrug!  

Those heart/key markers are adorable, and loving that teapot cozy!  That fleece hotpack looks super warm.  I love the pattern on the fleece!

I love the fleece rice bag--what a cozy and practical idea!  What is this spiral fleece scarf you speak of?  I would love to see more details on that!

The tea cozy is so cute!!  I love the colors and the flowers...beautiful...

Thanks for explaining how the infinity cowl was done...it is gorgeous...I also love the mug charms...great idea!

Oh, luckdragon--I hope the package shows up!  The mug rugs are so nicely done!

Sorry for the delay in picture posting (I am VERY sorry for the over exposure - had to use my iPhone to take the pictures).

Here is my package from Pinkleo:

A wonderfully made slouchy hat - it is a little tight on the noggin but once I wash it once and stretch it, it will be even more awesome!

A pair of handmade fingerless mittens/wrist warmers - I have worn these almost every day since received.

A patterned 'mug rug.'

And a collection of warmable goodies (white/raspberry/chai teas, and white hot chocolate).

Thanks again Pinkleo! I sent on Friday so I hope you get it (and love it) soon!

Happiness is ideal, it is the work of the imagination.

Happy Valentine's Day to me  Grin
Today I recieved an amazing package from KrisCreates!

First off the whole shebang:

Now a closeup of the fantastic hat and fingerless gloves I had on my wist.  Prepare to be jealous.  They are cabled with an adorable owl pattern.  I LOVE them.

See how happy I am!

And now all the great yummy goodies:

There's some Blow Me Down coffee (named for the Blow Me Down mountain range in Newfoundland), some local jellies, 3 chocolate covered spoons, a great mug and coffee scented candle.  Not pictured is the bag of Rolos that didn't last long enough to be photographed.  The vultures stole them.

Thank you KrisCreates you're the BEST!!!

Oh and here's a quick look at what I sent to KrisCreates since she hasn't been able to post any pics yet.  I hope she doesn't mind.

There were 2 mug cozies, a blanket made with Knitmare On Elmstreet fabric (that was my wearable as she said she loved blankets and I pretty much wear my blanket around the house), Chocoloco and Lion's Head Mountain Breeze teas, samples of some of my favourite teas and some vegan cacao nib chai biscotti.

I had a lot of fun putting together a swap package.  I think I may have a new addiction on my hands.

Get ready to be jealous everyone.  Take a look at the incredible package I got from kittymom13.
The whole package:

A large can of acai tea sachets and a 4 pack of flavored tea sachets and ice cream jelly bellys...YUM...must hide jelly beans from hubby

Spa bath soak packets, honey straws, valentines tissues and stampers, cupcake plate, knit mug sleeve and knit cup sleeve

STUNNING pink scarf / shawl.  I love that it buttons to keep me super warm.  Beleive it or not it can get pretty chilly here in Atlanta this time of year.  I adore this piece, such great work!!!

Oh and there was an adorable Valentines Day card enclosed.  Thanks so much kittymom13 for a great package and for being a wonderful partner.  Happy Valentines Day to all!!!!   Smiley Smiley Smiley

The owl pattern is so interesting and cute! Great job on the knitting!

What a lovely idea to send a blanket...of course it will keep a person warm! I love the print! Also, such cute mug cozies!
