Yummy Yarns Swap

Last month I left a comment on Ali's blog on this post as Ali had bought some gorgeous Socks that Rock and I was drooling. So we arranged a swap & I had a great time choosing something for Ali. I sent her a huge list of questions so that I could narrow down what she wanted & I think I was successful. Ali asked me to chose some colours that I liked so I looked at the colours here & sent her a long list of the ones I liked.

Beautifully wrapped gifts in my favourite colour combination

Unwrapped to reveal these:

Socks that Rock' sock yarn, Canadian Chocolate & Maple Syrup sweet
'Socks that Rock' sock yarn, Canadian Chocolate & Maple Syrup sweet

Thanks so much Ali I love it all. The yarn is gorgeous & I'm looking forward to knitting with it. The colour Ali found is Undertoe & I think it'll look lovely with a slipped stitch pattern.

I received my parcel a couple of weeks ago but due to the threat of more flooding and Tooth ache I posted my parcel a bit later than Ali plus the Canadian postage service seems a bit sluggish but she has now received her yarn & loves what I sent her.

Thanks very much Ali. I've enjoyed spoiling you & feel very honoured that you've spoilt me so well

BTW: the laces aren't in the second photo as they were quickly liberated by DD & are now housed in her Converse shoes....

I'm so pleased you're happy with the swap. I'm absolutely made up with what you sent me!

Many thanks for making my first swap so fab.

Hmm what lovely yarn! A very nice gift. I am very tempted by the fairisle socks on that site - so pretty. Hope you are all still flood free
