I'm just back from a week's vacation in Finland, my native, or home country. I loved seeing my family again and seeing the Finnish spring after many years of visiting only in the winter or summer. I really wish I could have stayed longer, but as it's not possible, I'm trying to ease my sorrow with Finnish yarns.
Just take a look at these beauties! While in Finland, I received a swap package from "Maja" from the Finnish Sunny Funny Swap - the package was supposed to be sunny and a bit silly, and exactly that describes this package. There was some Finnish workhorse yarn (7 Veljestä, dk wool blend) in bright yellow and some thin Pirkkalanka in a beautiful red tone. I also got a gorgeous handmade project bag in yellow, a green tea soap, dpn holders (a very innovative construction with wood!) a fridge magnet and some chocolates (some are already missing from the picture...) and some serpentine colourful paper ribbon to decorate for a May Day party!
What a gorgeous package, thanks very much whoever you may be!
The funny thing is that I bought the exact same 7 Veljestä yellow yarn a few days before! See, I can't go to Finland without buying a few yarns... or plenty, like this time. I got 3 balls of 7 Veljestä (150g each), 3 balls of TicoTico (100g each, a sock yarn) and 200g of Jussi sock yarn by Jämsän Huopatehdas - a traditional, low-price Finnish sock yarn in gray! My stash is now overflowing once again! I'll better get knitting now won't I?
Hihii, hauska, jos paketti oli mieluinen. Haluatko arvuutella vielä henkilöllisyyttäni, vai paljastanko Ravelryssa? Vihjeenä voin kertoa, että olet saanut minulta paketin aiemminkin. ;-)
Hihii! Voit paljastaakin, en keksi millään!
