My Knitting Vacation Begins!A while ago, I joined a Knitting Vacation Swap program, and yesterday was my big day: my goodies arrived from Heather, my pal.
Here's the first photo of my loot:
And here's a better snap of the beautiful red felted purse I received:
What else was inside, you ask? Here's a peek:
Here's a list of what I got:
A skein of "surf" colored sock yarn (I love those colors!).
A beautiful handmade felted purse with a cool chain/beaded handle.
A pack of knitting-related notecards (I love those silhouettes they're using for marketing/decorating these days)
A little tin of strawberry-flavored tea (strawberries are my all-time favorite fruit).
A peg game that is soon going to compete with my knitting for my attention...must...stop...playing...that...game!
A fun, do-it-yourself scrapbook with beach-related stick-em-on shapes.
A knitting mystery, complete with a recipe AND a pattern! I can't wait to read that!!
Oh, and it was all packaged in a photo storage box to use for vacation snapshots.
Nice, huh? I love it!
Thank you, Heather!!
And I have to comment on Heather's gorgeous penmanship--graceful and legible, all at the same time. Someday, when I grow up, I want to have beautiful, unusual, remarkable handwriting like Heather's.
