Package from the US

Sometime during last spring I joined a group in Ravelry called International Yarn and Candy Swap. In June I participated in the first swap. My swapmate was from the US, more exactly from Oregon, and here's what she sent me:

The package had soooo much candy in it! Wow! Don't know when I'll manage to eat all of it! But so far, as for the candy I've already tasted, they taste really, really good! Yummy!

Although the candy was great, the best part is still the one skein of yarn I got. Madelinetosh! Hand dyed yarn, colour Iris. Really beautiful! The colour shifts from dark blue to dark violet. I bet it'll look great when knitted! This is actually my first yarn by Madelinetosh so I really look forward to trying it. Perhaps I'll never want to knit anything else after this ;) (although I hope not, since I really don't think I could afford it in the long run...)

Then I also got this wonderful card that she had made out of fabric used in a Shakespeare play. Nice, isn't it? :)

It by the way feels like this summer has passed so, so quickly... I had a lot of half-finished projects lying around and I had planned to finish all of them already in the beginning of the summer. That way I thought I'd have a lot of time left to start new, wonderful projects. But here I am, in the middle of August, still with a tiny mountain of small projects yet to be finished. The biggest problem is perhaps that there keeps coming new, small but high-priority projects all the time! Almost feel stressed! ...but only almost... Fortunately knitting itself is so relaxing... :)


  1. Wow, what a swap! Love the Tosh yarn, great violet!

  2. Yeah, really looking forward to using it for something! :)
