First up, from the very fun Starbucks and Yarn Swap, this great gift from Nic:
Isn't it perfect? A gift card for more Starbucks (this will come in handy the next time I get lost in a big city and seek refuge in the closest Starbucks!); a small, sweet felt bag; some divine little bites of chocolate; delicious yarn (need to find out the details on this) and ingenious little Starbucks stitch markers!!! How clever is that?!? Thank you so much, Nic!
And then, arriving just as the feel of the air outdoors begins to signal fall, this beautiful yarn and pattern from Natalie for the Hand Dyed Yarn Swap, hosted by Celena:
Isn't it pretty? Included in the package is the photo that inspired Natalie in her choice of yarn colors and they are perfect...thank you, Natalie! And Celena for hosting.
I think I got all of my current swap commitements met (some a few days tardy, but with good intent) I am going to slow down on swaps a bit for now, but I did join in the next round of one of my favorites, No More Hum-Drum Mittens 3 because I had so much fun in the last round. I will have my questionnaire for that one posted by the morning!
