The Rowboat arrived!

Back in January I signed up to do a swap on one of my sock groups. Since Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday I figured a Valentine themed swap would be a great way to embrace the forced romanticism of a Hallmark holiday and try to have a little fun.

I was right and had a blast putting together stuff for my partner Franney. I jumped with both feet into heart-shaped red themed goodness and put together a slammin’ package. Franney got it the week of Valentines and loved it. She told me mine was on the way. I waited patiently. And waited, and waited. Did I mention she lives in England? I waited some more.

Yesterday I finally got my package from her. The post office must have sent the stuff over in a rowboat it took so long, but it was so worth the wait!! I got so many goodies I couldn’t photograph them all at the same time.
There’s the non-knitting stuff. Pen’s, pencils, measuring devices, a calculator, a notions bag, the cutest little sheep key chain, chocolate, coffee (which somehow didn’t make it into the picture), highlighters, notepads, note cards, lotion, a CD of music from the 20’s (which I love).

The Crafty stuff. The CUTEST little project bag in my favorite color. Adorable little crafty crocheted things a little heart & a pear, and a handmade note card - which she left blank so I could use it.

The knit stuff. Stitch markers, a row counter bracelet (which I didn’t manage to get a good picture of), a sheepy needle gauge, and of course yarn. The yarn is so nice! It’s soft and squishy and the color is fantastic!! Love it!!
Thank you Franney! You Rock!!
