Warm Ewe Up Winter Final Swap Package


I received my final swap package for the Warm Ewe Up Winter Swap. The mystery was revealed that Megan C (Kniteurope) from Monoma Wisconsin was my spoiler. She's apologized for not being in touch much, her computer died on her. However, her packages have all been wonderful. This one was no exception. See the beautiful green yarn. One is Knitpicks Shadow in Lost Lake Heather. It's is so beautifully soft. And the other is a silk merino from "the plucky Knitter". I can't describe how beautiful it is. I'll definitely be checking out the website too. www.thepluckyknitter.com if you are interested. I'm not sure what I'll make yet with the Knitpicks but I definitely see a scarf in my future out of the silk merino. There was a book from my wishlist "Knitting without tears", some sheep clips, a cute little sheep filled with hershey's kisses and some shamrock mint soap...it smells awesome!!!! Thanks Megan!!!!!
It's been fun and I'll miss the packages. I may do another swap in the future. It was definitely a positive experience. I enjoyed receiving packages and making packages for Brenda in LA. It's funny on my recent trip to San Francisco Brenda sent me a recommendation for a restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf. Of course I didn't ask for the recommendation until we were almost through our vacation but the first place we ate in San Francisco was the place The Pier Cafe she recommended.

swaps are so awesome- any time I participate in one, I swear it feels like it's my birthday or something when the package arrives! Looks like you got nicely spoiled. Congrats!

Nancy, I just finished looking at all your SF posts. I just loved the descriptions and the photos - you captured the character of the city very well. I used to work in SF for several years, and your pix reminded me of those times. I do miss the city - it's so lively and interesting everywhere you look.
P.S. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday !!

Take care,
Brenda
