I love swaps… they are awesome ways to meet new people and the Malabrigo swap by far has to be my favorite one…. everyone is so nice and we all spoil each other so well!! This package was made lovingly by one of the best stalkers of all time, Jacqui722on Ravelry.
I got so much awesome stuff!!! I got 4, yes FOUR skeins of aquarella minas which is gorgeous and chunky and so lovely! I have no clue what to make with it at the moment but for now I’m content staring and petting it! Edible wise, I got lindor truffles (Yum!!! I love those things! So rich, so creamy, so good), pop rocks (Another fun treat I love… I’m so going to share with my neices since they’ve never experienced the crackling goodness!), tea in those to go water bottle packets which is awesome because those are all I take with me to work and I’ve never seen this kind and they look so good! Bookwise I got a hilarious and lovely book by the Yarn Harlot! I love this book, just glancing at it so far I’ve already giggled quite a few times! There is a really cool circle notebook, Kookaburra Woolwash (which I’ve always wanted to try!!), awesome soap that smells so good (It is Kiss my Face olive and honey soap), a lovely smelling cucumber melon candle (which is now lit in my room XD), some Burt’s Bees Hand Salve (which I so needed because I’ve been spinning silk lately and my hands are so dry (because I wash my hands all the freaking time (nursing habit)) and the fibers stick…I used some and it totally helped!!!) Lastly, but definitely not leastly are my needles. (Aside: is leastly a word?) I got a set of 16 inch 10.5 circular needles from knitpicks!!!! I love their needles and I have only like one other set of 16 inch needles so these will definitely be used in the next couple of weeks!!! Thanks so much! And finally, she made me a home made set of knitting needles that are about a size 8 she said. They have a pretty polymer clay top that is blue with sparkles! They are sooooooo pretty and thoughtful and I’m definitely going to use them and add them to my new pretty knitting needle collection! Thank you so much for the awesome package!!!
