Wow - I'm just in awe of the packages we're getting - this has been such a great swap!

That hand-dyed yarn is beautiful, Jeanius!

I got my package this week but didn't get a chance to post about it as I've been at camp with my kids all week.
I got j2 skeins of Classic Elite Flash, which is a very pretty marled cotton, 2 HeartStrings patterns (Beaded Faux Cable Anklets, and A Bias Toward Lace scarf), 2 pairs of needles, and a cute journal.
My swap partner was Risa. Thanks!

Hey,

i got my package last week but my camera was on the blink so i didnt want to tease anyone without actually posting pictures. But its ready now and i have some pics so here's what WeWantMore - AKA Michelle got me for the last swap. (I e-mailed her as soon as i opened it up and let her know how thrilled i was with it all!!! THANX MICHELLE!)
Note: if you're not on broadband the links to the pictures might take a while to download... they're quite big.


All the stuff in the bag is my stash... no thats not all of it, but a good portion of it (yeah my stash isnt that bad really!)

I LOVE Michelles work on the needles case - she says its not perfect, but I think it is!! I love the fabric choices too *drool* ooh and i should also mention that she included the bamboo & purple double pointed needles and the red straights in the middle - you can never have too many needles!!
just a look at the inside of the book.... which was really heavy mind you!! She paid a fortune for shipping!

So thankyou to everyone who made my first swap experience such a great one!
I've joined the secret swapper 11 swap which is organised outside of KH, so i've passed on the next swap... but i deftinatly look forward to participating in another swapp with KH in the near future!!

Ok for everyone more knitting porn...My haul...lol I got a nice soft hat the picture doesn't do it justice. Its soft and pretty and is black with a row of colored beads knit into the band. I also got a small neck warmer made from the same yarn and also decorated with the beads on each end.
A really cute box (Did you make the box?) with stitch markers in it hand made for me. I love them they are sooooo pretty! If that wasn't enough I got 3 small canvases so I can paint...
Hey Lisa
i'm so happy you like everything, and yes i collaged the box myself !! I couldnt resist the little canvases.... there were four but i kept one for myself

Curly (I won't use your real name as I don't see you using it here) You are most welcome. I had a blast being your semi-secret swapper.

I was anxious about making sure you were a happy camper. I spent some time reading your online info, and knew that you liked vintage things, and that you know tatting. So, I went through my Workbasket Magazines to find something you might want. Then, I spied the blue cotton on eBay, and thought you'd like it too.

Whew! What a relief to know that you are pleased!

It was fun to be your swap pal.
You did a brilliant job!!! :D

THANK you Seckiesbrat!!!!!
On Saturday I got the most beautiful, colorful, happiest BOOGA BAG!! it is a marvelous rainbow of colors and just the perfect size for me- I just love it!!! (my camera has had a minor meltdown but I'm fixing it now- will post soon) and I love the tea light candles.

yesterday I was recovering after having a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds over for a splash party and a little sweet smelling candle and knitting was exactly what I needed. and the candy too- do I have to share??? LOL

Kayleigh was THRILLED to get crafts to do. She loves to paint and craft and was mystified that my secret friend would know she loved Disney Princesses. K also has her eye on the yummy candy!

Danielle- you kept a great secret- and I'm sending big hugs and big thanks!!!

I received my package on Saturday as well. I've got some pictures I need to get off my camera and hope to post them later!

I received some beautiful stitch markers (of which I don't but a few, so that's really nice), some fudge (which I've never heard of and can't wait to try), some wonderful smelling candles, some "candy" looking bath fizzles and a "all you need to know about knitting" book.

Thank you so very much! I'm hoping to try the fudge out tonight and soak in a warm bath tub as well

I hope to get some pictures up later. Thanks again Shannon I really appreciate it you did a wonderful job!
