I sent to a woman in Norway & she now has a beautiful skein of Fleece Artist Merino in Marine with some coffee, hot chocolate, a small scented candle & a bag of Thorntons Toffee. The yarn was gorgeous & nearly didn't make it to the post office!
My spoiler & I have really hit it off. She's an English woman living in Canada & I'm now gutted that we've had to postphone our trip to Canada due to our impending house move. My parcel arrived a few days ago & I wasn't disappointed when I opened it:
Gifts from Canada
I didn't stand a chance of actually keeping the moose & he's now taken up permanent residence in DDs' room. There was also a book on Canada but that's upstairs as I've just finished reading it & DH has nabbed it now.
Canadian Hot Chocolate
As a confirmed non-coffee or tea drinker it had to be hot chocolate
Koigu Sock pattern book
I've done swaps before & never had an overseas pal before - now I know why I've always wanted one! And the best for last:
Koigu sock yarn
Thank you so much CL for being a great pal & I look forward to staying in touch with you & eventually meeting up when we get over there. Also a big thanks to indieknits for organising it all.
Now I'm spoilt for choice over the yarn for my next sock project - my beautiful new Koigu or the beautiful Posh Yarns Cashmere that Piglottie gave me. It'll be a hard decision.
