I took part in another swap this month, the European swap on Ravelry. The moderator kind of forgot the swap, so it was organized by another member of the group. I thought that it could end bad - but it didn't. It ended great! My swap partner Fairytalefelter aka Dawn has received her package and here's what she sent me.
I took part in the All in One Color swap in the Ravelry Ten dollar swap group this month, and was through and through spoiled! My spoiler was Nicola from Wisconsin, and she had really though about the package - it was so great! Take a look:
First of all there was a skein of Lamb's Pride bulky wool and mohair yarn. It's so soft and I love the shade of red! But that was only the start. There were all kinds of candy which I really like like the Twix, Baby Ruths and Reese's peanut hearts - and Hershey's Kisses, which I got to taste for the first time!
I took part in another swap before Christmas, the Finnish Christmas swap, Jouluvaihto.
My partner received her present and liked it, and I like mine too! I waited for a long time before unpacking them, as I wanted to wait until Christmas (well, almost, as I was away over actual Christmas so I opened them on the 21st).
It's been a while since I've taken part in a swap, I don't know why, as I really like them! Well, I've signed up for another one now, even before I got this lovely package from Jo across the channel (UK).
Look at all the lovelies; to mention just a few: pretty yarn (Artesano Alpaca and Rennie 4-ply wool) and an extravagant scarf, tasty toffe licorice and even a mini sock blocker!
So, we've got some more space for the site, and I can upload photos again!
The first thing I'll show you is the packet I sent and received for the Ravelry Studio Ghibli swap, or Totoro swap for me, as Totoro is my favourite Ghibli character and I obviously planned my packet around him.
