This is some of what I sent to my yarn-swap pal in Sweden. I guess I forgot to take a pic of the full box when it was ready to send! There were 3 more balls of yarn and 2 sweet treats in the box. I can't believe she got it so fast!!! One week to ship to Sweden. (It better be fast for $32!)
Well, I assumed that meant my Hanne Falkenberg pattern kit I ordered from Cucumberpatch in England would get here quickly too. And I was right! Cool!! Here's a pic of what my kit looked like when I got it:
It's the 'Ballerina' swing jacket, and it's so beautiful! I bought colorway 12. Can't wait to get started on it.
And, I can't wait to see what my swap pal got for me. She's been having a hard time lately, and so her package to me has been delayed. Carola, I hope you are feeling better, and that your kitties are all healthy now.
Gift news: now my finished Christmas gift scarf-count has reached five. Yay! I am starting 2 more. Hanne will have to wait, unfortunately.
A friend and I will be starting our first pair of socks after the Christmas season. Looking forward to that! I have a few balls of sock yarn--will have to find the most beginner-friendly yarn,pattern, and needles. Don't need to be using no stinking size 0s on my first pair of socks!
