How lovely! That alpaca is TOO cute. I'm glad your cat didn't attack the thing. And the snowmen are so creative!

Thank You ALL for a Successful Swap!
It is with great pleasure that I announce that ALL swappers have received their packages and the swap has now, officially, ended. I can't wait, however, to see the things that everyone knits using their swap yarn and stitchmarkers!

I actually CO just yesterday my wonderful hand-dyed yarn from my swap partner, Jeanius80. I'm attempting my FIRST socks!!!

Happy knitting everyone and thank you ALL for being such a wonderful swap group!

It has been a pleasure to serve as your host for this swap. That said, keep watch... I've got a new swap planned for sometime in the future that is a bit different, but I think it will be LOADS of fun!

Foxyie we had so much fun putting your package together for you! We loved that little Alpaca too.....ummmm.... I guess I'll share where we got him with the rest of you lol..go to www.alpacaDirect.com. They have fast shipping I order from them before and they had my yarn out the same day and it got to me in two days (don't know how fast over seas shiping is though) anyway we decided to go with them since they had great products and great shipping! I think I am gonna get an alpaca too lol. I looked on their site yesterday and they were having a sale on cascade 220 yarn if anyone is interested

Thanks for giving up your secret as to where the Alpaca came from. That totally cracks me up. ALSO, HUGE THANKS for the heads-up on the Cascade 220 sale!!!! I've been wanting some of that for a project that, while a little ways out, I can't resist a sale on the yarn I want for it!

But alas, no one got a refrigerator box. Boo hoo!! I was kind of hoping someone would do that just for the heck of it!

Thanks again AstonH, I really enjoyed participating in your Swap. It was so much fun.

I too am glad that everyone now has a parcel.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
