Holiday 2007 Swap

Thursday, January 03, 2008

And my package arrived. After one month in mail, from Allegan-Michigan to Istanbul-Turkey, 'he' was very tired but happy to find a new home. My swap pal, Coby (ravelry ID: cjkopec) sent me so many goodies: 4 skeins of Iceland 100% wool Crystal Palace Yarns, 4 scented soaps-hand made by herself (Love Spell, Cucumber Melon, Honey Baked Pears and Plum&Berries), the January 2008 issue of Creative Knitting magazine, body+soul magazine, Stitch’N bitch knitter’s design journal, a pattern for a felted bag to go with the Crystal Palace yarns AND La Pièce De Résistance, handspun yarn. The yarn was handspun by herself with fibers that she dyes and hand cards by herself. It’s a blend of merino, tencel, mohair and Romney. The color is lovely. I think I’ll keep the yarn just for petting, it’s so soft and, after 30 days in the mail, lightly scented because of the handmade soap. Thanks a lot, Coby! You do know how to spoil a person… and how to make me dance!
