My swap package arrived today!

I joined another yarn swap through the Knitspot fall in full colour group on Ravlery and today my package from my lovely swap partner arrived! This is what it looked like when I first opened it:

And this was what was in each of those lovely wrapped packages:

I received a lovely skein of Bugga yarn (heard a lot about it but never been able to get my hands on a skein), a custom made chocolate bar with cherries coconut and almonds (so delicious), a dark chocolate bar with raspberries and a cow pie (chocolate, caramel and pecans) that only lasted long enough to take this picture. There are other little goodies tucked into that picture including some beautiful bird feathers!

A close up of the yarn yumminess:

And because I know my mother will ask what I sent; I sent my lovely swap partner a skein of Lady Godiva by Handmaiden, Laura Secord chocolate bars, candied citrus peel with dark chocolate and a maple sugar candy (both of which are hidden in the ziplock bag).


My package has arrived

I joined a swap on ravelry and went to pick up my package today. There were a bunch of lovely treats inside including some delicious merino sock yarn by Mountain Colours and “The Monk in the Garden” a book about Gregor Mendel who is considered the father of genetics and the reason punnett squares exist. There was also chocolate with caramel inside (swoon), the most awesome stitch markers in the world (including a little owl), another measuring tape (I can never have enough of those as I am always misplacing them) and some toys for Piper!

I am looking forward to reading the book as I can remember being introduced to Mendel in Grade 11 and thought punnett squares were awesome. Piper I’m sure is looking forward to getting her beak on those toys!
