Participated in my fist Yarn Swap...
on Instagram, of course!!!
Partners were assigned and we were introduced to
one another, emails provided so we could chat.
The only rules were...include $30 of yarn and
we could add extras as well.
Mail by March 5th...no problem!
Kari Cole out of Pittsburgh, PA
was my partner
I perused her partner form and IG account
to see what she liked!
I kept colors and specifics in mind for her and selected...
4 skeins of Pick Knits 4 ply yarns (turquoise)
2 skeins of Poems 4 ply yarns (variegated browns/neutrals)
She also liked tea and I added that to the package
I had a little note book that I included
and I made her a small zipper pouch
to keep little items for knitting in.
She really spoiled me as my package included 2 skeins
of beautiful fingering yarns.
I am really crushing on lacey type scarves
and shawls, so these will be perfect!
some fun stitch markers and knitting accessories
in a cute box to keep them safe
Those owls are sew sweet!
A huge project bag from Noonday Creations.
Oh wait...check out these cute tags for knitted gifts
I may (or may not...wink) give!
As part of the swap, several indie yarn dyers
offered discounts....I went shopping!
and now these are also in my stash!
I should be knitting instead of blogging...but
hey sometimes I gotta chat with you!
