Props to a Swap Pal who deserves it!!!

I got my Knitting Vacation Swap package in the mail yesterday. Woohoo! Dani was my swap pal and she did such a great job! I didn't make it easy for her; I have come to realize that these swaps are hard for me - I have no problem and in fact, love giving; I am not so good at asking or making a list of what I would like from others. So with no information or help on my part (even though she did try) Dani made herself so proud. The package was huge: 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces in Shepherd Sport - Jeans Colour (I do so love Lorna's and I will enjoy making socks in this colourway), a sock pattern from Lisa Knits, this wonderful felted bag (which my buddy Carole would kill me to get) which I may use as a small project bag - so trendy, a candle holder with three cups and of course candles to set inside the cups, a heart shaped bar of soap from the Body Shop, this cool little thing called an eggling which has a blooming flower inside (mine has Lobelia which I happen to looooooove), a knitting novel and best of all a package of Susan Bates double pointed metal needles in 4 sizes! Like 20 metal dpn's! I took such a great picture you can't see half the contents - way to go Cynthia! Holy crikey girl - you rock! I am overly exponentially excited about the needles - thank you! The whole package is over the top. I am over the top! Thank you so much Dani.

Dani said...

As I told you earlier, I am SO happy you liked everything! You are such a warm and giving person, I wanted to be sure to give you back a bit of the kindness you share with others!

And just so you know, I pay Catherine to say nice things ;-)

Fabuloso! I recently bought some of that Jeans LL. It's a great colorway. And the bag is splendid.

Melissa said...

Cynthia- What a great haul! And be careful, your life may be in danger- when a friend covets your knitted bag, well, things can get out of hand.
Enjoy the swag!

Wonderful!
I love the generous spirit of this online knitting community!!
It can't be beat.
Wow.
Tomorrow I am heading into the 'city' so I plan to splash out on my SP8 & One Skein Pals - hee hee.
It is so much more fun than shopping for yourself.

Enjoy Cynthia!

I bet it was easy to be generous with you because you're so wonderfully generous yourself, Cindy. I love giving to someone who gets as excited as you do over what I make for 'em too. And you show your enthusiasm very well for everything you get from anybody. Gosh I even get excited when it's you that gets all those nice things & not me, LOL. Rock on girl!
