This package was sent to Canada! My swap partner loves wool, so I sent a skein of Lorna's Laces Swirl DK, a super soft blend of wool and silk. I know we were only supposed to send one chocolate bar, but they were on sale.....The envelope says "A little something I made...JUST FOR YOU." Inside is the crocheted bracelet I blogged about earlier in the week. I hope she likes it all! I don't know yet because I sent the package on the deadline and at the post office they told me it would take 5 to 10 days to be delivered! I'll keep that in mind for future international swaps anyway.
Now, on to the package I received.
My package comes from a knitter in California! Too cool! In addition to the yarn, she sent me a fat, blue pen with an Apple logo! I wonder who she works for! The skein of Mission Falls 1824 Cotton was just perfect for me. I've been wondering what this yarn is like. I know just what it will be, too. Since it's a one skein project, it won't take too long to make up. Of course, the project will have to wait its turn in the queue!
I think Swapbot is fun. You do have to be pretty trusting though. It is monitored, but they require addresses and other personal information to make the site workable. The envelope I put the bracelet in was also from a stationery exchange on Swapbot. It's made from paper pressed with flower petals and smells very springlike. It came in handy to put the bracelet in and sweeten the whole box.
