She Got Her Parcel
I received an email from my Hot Socks Swap partner, Helen, today. This is the partner I sent to, she is in Australia, and it has been a pleasure corresponding with her via email. Anyway, she has received her parcel of goodies, so now I can post a picture of what I sent. This swap was not necessarily a secret, I just didn't want to ruin the surprise by posting pictures prior to her getting the parcel. I searched the online Australian yarn shops to see if there were yarns that we have here that maybe are not so readily available there. I decided on Mountain Colors Bearfoot. She had mentioned knitting with Lorna's already, (that is one of my favorites), so that was out, Koigu is lovely and one of my favorites too, but not so available where I am, and so I decided on the Bearfoot, which I love. I also sent her a ball of Opal. And of course the coffee, that is the "hot" part of the swap, and some wonderful chocolate mints ( they are very , very good). Helen, I hope you enjoy all of it and I look forward to seeing the socks you knit up. This was a very fun swap. Can't wait for the next one.
