Swap updates

Standard

I have pictures of my swap parcels to show you all, starting with my winterwonderland swap
2 fantastics washcloths, t-pins (requested by me to help with my blocking, almost impossible to find in the uk!), some Millstones coffee (impossible to get hold of in the UK), a cute notebook and pen and some lovely stitchmarkers (already in use)

Next to arrive was a parcel from my SP9, this contained some lavender bathsalts and some Koigu KPPM (something I have wanted for ages) in the most gorgeous pink/purple/mauve colours. The yarn colour is so me and is defintely a colour I would have chosen myself.

And this morning I was awoken by the postie to sign for the parcel from Coffee & Knitting swap on swap-bot. I was well and truly spoiled! The parcel contained a large packet of Caramel Truffle Millstones coffee (i am drinking a cup as I type – divine!), some pretty handmade stitchmarkers, and some Black Raspberry Vanilla hand cleansing gel from Bath and Body Works. I remember when I was about 14 there was a Bath and Body Works store in my (then) local shopping centre and I loved their stuff – then they vanished. The gel is perfect as I use alcohol gel anyway but the stuff I use smells of alcohol but this smells yummy and keeps the scent on your hands. I used some a couple of hours ago and my hands still smell nice. There was also yarn, lots of yarn. The parcel contained 2 balls of Sugar n Cream, 1 skein of Araucania Nature wool in blue and 1 Araucania Nature wool chunky in green and 2 balls of Valley Yarns Longmeadow (a lovely soft cotton/microfibre)in turquoise.

  1. Great loot!

    P.S. Isn’t Koigu the yummiest? (I have a serious crush on it…one that rivals my KidSilkHaze crush from last year….)
