Swap Parcels

Standard

International Scarf Exchange 3

I received a gorgeous red and navy alpaca scarf along with some yummy chocolates. I am eagerly awaiting the colder weather now so I can wear this oh-so-soft scarf. Thank-you!!!

Knitters Tea Swap 2

Where to being…I was spoiled by Miss Priss Knits and spoiled I was with both tea and knitting content. Thank you. the parcel was perfect!

The tea content

Adagio Ingenuitea, Mug, Adagio teas (golden monkey, oriental spice & vanilla), tropical tea bags. I have very quickly become dependent on the Adagio Ingeuitea and wonder how I managed without one. I have tried the teas and they are really nice, esp the Oriental Spice. I will defintely being ordering from their website.

The knitting content

knitting magazine, stitich makers, sugar n cream yarn ( 4 balls, 2 pink variagated and two green), bamboo needles, (pics of later to follow). To make it even more perfect one of the sugar n cream ballband patterns was for a tea cozy, so I think I have to make one.

and legendary Jelly Bellys, I love these but they are just soooo expensive in the UK.

Hot Socks

As you can tell my postie has been very busy. I received another gorgeous parcel in the Hot Socks swap which was Laura’s first time as hostess. Well done Laura and thanks for a great swap.

This parcel reminds me of autumn, the lovely deep jewel tones of the yarn and the sublime warming smell of the tea. I have yet to try it as there is only so mcuh tea one girl can drink and recently i’ve been inundated. But if it tastes as good as it smells i’ll be in heaven. I just love cinnamon.

  1. How weird the swap chain is! I have been both yours and Miss Priss’ spoilees. The tea swap sounded like fun, I just missed sign-ups. Oh well, next time!

  2. My goodness, haven’t you gotten a lot of yummies in the mail! I know you love your mail carrier!
