I am putting together a box for my first swap, with Carola. She is a crocheter, and lives in Sweden. This is going to be a lot of fun! The next best thing to buying yarn for yourself is buying yarn for another fiber-head, who you know will enjoy it to its fullest!!! Ship out date is next Friday. That means I'll be getting a package from Sweden myself soon,Wheee!

Will show pic of what I sent her, after she gets it herself, so as not to spoil the surprise. But it did require me going to the store for yarn, which, of course, involved me buying more yarn for myself too! Got some Lion Wool, in nice masculine colors for Christmas gifts....

Maybe I can do some spinning today. It has been more than 10 days since I could do any, because my spindle is full! Now I have to learn to ply it, or get another spindle!!!! It's a rainy day, and good for baking breakfast treats, and wooly projects indoors. Also have to clean and organize my sewing area, because it has become an accumulating area instead. And I must go through and ditch clothes that do not fit, because this 30 lbs is not going anywhere anytime soon.....Goodwill drop-off, here I come.

I may tack on a recipe later in the day--I'm a morning blogger, but if I get to the recipe thing, I'll be back! Have a great Sunday, everyone :)
