A beautiful knit bag full of, umm excuse me, LINDOR TRUFFLES!
An issue of VOGUE KNITTING! (She saw my post about shawls and included it because it features some... how sweet!)
Two sets of double ended stitch holders!
AND... a set of DPN WIP HOLDER TUBES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOWWWEEE! What a great package.

BTW- I just got email confirmation that the package I mailed out on Tuesday is at the post office in the same city as the recipient. This means someone will get a package this afternoon or tomorrow at the latest!!! Yippee!

OH! Knitpurlgirl, you are a sneaky one!!
Yep, I received my box today! And I love everything in it! I love the stitch markers (I really like that there is one of a different color to mark the beginning of a row!), 15 sets of bamboo circs!, 4 skeins of Moda Dea Prima (in red I think), 2 of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in navy and one Trendsetter Yarns Dune and I love the large clothespin!!!

I am still figuring out the laptop so I will have to take pics of everything and post it tomorrow from the old pc!

I love everything and now I really need to figure how where to store the needles and yarn!

I haven't received it yet, AngMac. I'm going away for the next few days, so maybe it will be here when I get home.

Everyone's been getting such great things! I'm excited to get my goodies too

I'm SO glad you like everything! The stitch markers were hand made (not by me). I just used Moda Dea Yarn to make a shrug for my toddler and it is so cute! I also just used the Dune yarn to make a really cute dropped stitch scarf. I think you'll really like them!

My box will get mail out tomorrow..

Hints: this box is going to the same state as my last swap partner lived in. And This is a BIG hint. The name of the street is the same name as a town I am going to be moving to..

Oh no Bree. I mailed it last week so I was hoping it would get to you by now. I will check with the post office to find out where it is. Hopefully, it will be waiting for you when you get back.

I am glad you liked everything I made and bought for you ot was all made with lots of love

[See below]. I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff too; there's just so much coolness going on!

I'm totally stoked and can't wait to start on the jaywalkers with the handpainted at the top. They will look awesome.



Gato was feeling the love right away by knocking the empty box off of the chair and playing in it. She is actually playing with the toy mouse, but you can't see because it's under her.



Here's Bob playing with his toy. He FREAKED out, attacked the mouse then attacked the table. It was awesome:



So thanks Aimee! You are the coolest swap partner EVER!

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.

Everyone's packages look fantastic! Which makes the wait for mine even harder.


I met my swap partner yesterday and gave her her package.
