LOVE A GOOD SWAP!


A lovely swap parcel arrived this week, all the way from Virginia. It was from my swap partner, Heather, in the BareNakedKnitspot may swap. I was thoroughly spoilt with the most scrummy skein of 'Woolen Rabbit' Opulence. It's a 4-ply, in a 50% merino and 50% silk mix. It's gorgeous! 


Then there were some lovely purple stitch markers, including one cute little dog. Can you spot him? These will be just great for the Purple Passion Club, which starts this month. I've been pattern only for the last couple of Knitspot clubs, but have treated myself to a yarn and pattern membership this time around.

A swap parcel is always made beautifully complete if it also contains something yummy to eat, like chocolate and something yummy to smell, like soap. I was not disappointed!


Mr Snoops' socks are coming on a treat. One is already complete and I've just turned the heel on the second. He's tried the first sock on and was pleasantly surprised. He commented on the goos fit, 'nice' colour and the warm feel. Then he asked how much they cost! cough, cough, cough!

Nice swaps indeed. Once Mr SD has some handknitted socks he will wear nothing else, so that should keep you busy over the summer.

It appears you have indeed had a bountiful swap. The blue shade is electric.
Those socks for Mr.SD are fantastic,it doesn't matter what they cost.Besides he'd probably choke if he knew.

Ooooo...LOTS of goodies there, Ros...what a wonderful gift package! LOVE the blues in that yarn. Chocolate soap... and chocolate to eat while having chocolate-soaped bath--treats! The socks are coming along so well... He need not know the cost. Ignorance is bliss, in this case. ;o) Happy Summer Days ((HUGS))
