The lovely Donna had a skein of Wollmeise that she wasn't particularly attached to and I've always wanted to try it and adored the colour:
Wollmeise, Knitabulous sock yarns & a project bag!
I'll let the pictures do the talking:
Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin in Ruby Thursday
Knitabulous Ultimate Sock in New Jeans
The composition is 60% Wool, 20% Silk and 20% Bamboo which sounds as if it'll be lovely to use as well as wear.
I also love the project bag as it's got a firm base so stands up with a drawstring but didn't realise Donna had made it herself until I spotted the little 'Random Knits' tag.
Also included were a packet of Tam Tams, an Australian music magazine for DD and a black skull shaped rubber which went straight into her pencil case. DD came back from Australia last summer with a packet of Tam Tams and we all love them so they didn't last very long.
I sent enough Drops Kid-Silk for a decent sized shawl, an English magazine for her daughter which featured loads of Twilight information and a poster and some very nice chocolate. The chocolate nearly didn't make it as it had been 'found' by somebody but I managed to save it.
Thank you so much, I really enjoyed the swap & loved shopping for you!
And just because I couldn't resist here's another pic:
