I just love getting packages in the mail. Especially when it is a package from my Bloomin' Feet pal. I know you want to see what's inside so let's take a little peek. First there's candy - chocolates, some really cool looking sushi candy, oh, there is some soft peanut toffee drizzled with chocolate, but that got opened already and is now in the refrigerator so it missed out on the picture taking. There is also the most wonderful smelling soap - Black Tea Jasmine (my whole room smells great) and some body lotion. A great little journal and some blank notecards which I will be able to embellish to my heart's delight (did my pal know that I make cards?).
Then we have a beautiful pattern for a Seashell Wrap, size 6 needles (just the size needed in the pattern) and some beautiful rovings. One is dyed by my pal (merino, silk and alpaca - yum!!) and the other is from Lori Lawson of Capistrano Fiber Arts Studio (funny thing, I just heard of her today and then I get this in the mail). Both of the rovings are the perfect colors for me.
Oh wait, you really came here for the socks. Well, let me tell you that my pal is awesome. She actually dyed and spun the BFL for my socks. It's hard enough for me to believe that someone made me socks - but they also dyed and spun the fiber. Wow!! And the fit is perfect. See...
I'm wearing them to work tomorrow and showing all the girls at knitting group. Thank you, Sheree, for making this swap so special. And for making me feel so special!
