Astonh's package is in the mail. It went out today but I was in contact with her as I had some issues and was unable to get it sent off in time but I apologized and told her she could beat me over the head with a stick but she would have to come to Canada to do it.
I was just about to write that mine was in or soon to be in transit but MommaG beat me to it. And the only reason I would consider trekking up the Canada to beat anyone would be to get out of this hot weather we've been having here in Central Texas. :O) Even then, it wouldn't be to beat anyone... I'm very excited about my in transit package... Can't wait to share with everyone pix of what I get!

I got the most wonderful package in the mail on Monday. Everything that Karina sent was just gorgeous. I need to get some pictures, but I have been so crazy. She sent me some Tofutsies sock yarn because I want to learn to knit socks. Some "gloss" yarn from Knitpicks in an awesome purple color. And a skein of bare yarn to dye with kool-aid. (Gonna look up how to do that.) She also sent some purple stitch markers with hearts; there were some yummy smelling bath stuff and a verbana sachet that is going in my sock drawer. Also some candy sticks for my girls and a box of shortbread "biscuits" from the UK. Oh, and a pattern book with tons of patterns in it. I can't remember anything else right now, but trust me it was a great package. I was definitely spoiled!!!
Thanks again Karina. I loved everything!!!

Would it be possible for people to post what theme their package was in?
That was one of my favourite parts of this swap, picking a theme for my partner was so fun, andit was so excitign when i unwrapped my skull and cross bones themed package.
My theme for my partner Doodknitwit was 'Fall into Socks with a cup of coffee". LOL. She said she liked fall colors, socks and coffee I combined them all!
Debkcs did mine and I dubbed it "a few of my favorite things!" She had my favorite colors, felted bag pattern and a mug that looked like my dog( one of my most favorite things in the world!)
