I meant to post about my one-skein knitting swap. I signed up to swap yarn with a partner through Ravelry.
My partner was from Ohio and we emailed back and forth a few times to talk about knitting and what we like/dislike etc. The rule was that you had to send your partner a skein of yarn that they could use in a project, you didn't have to knit anything.
Here is what I sent:
I know that it said that we didn't have to make anything, but I thought this knitting project bag ornament was so cute! Plus I made it out of scrap yarn and it was a very fast project. I want to make one for my Christmas tree this year.
I got a message that Chris loved the package! Especially the chocolates and the purple Bamboo/Silk yarn.
I got home from work on Thursday night and SQUEE!!! My package was there. I opened it up and I felt incredibly spoiled! Thanks for all the great things: the Lion Brand Thick n Quick yarn, the cookie pop, handmade stitch markers, circular needle, baby socks and patterns! (I know I forgot something)
So I've learned: swaps are incredibly fun! And it's exciting to get something cool in the mail again, instead of the usual bills and junk mail. I can't wait to sign up for another one.
