All year long I have been a member of Lynne’s Special Swap and I have enjoyed it immensely. Our themes have been original and creative! I have gotten to know some amazing and wonderful knitter/bloggers.
And, Lynne ended the Special Swap by doing a “Christmas Swap” and my swap partner was an amazing Knitting Blogger, Sue. We had exchanged a few emails as we got to know each other and I had so much fun selecting items to send to her to make her Christmas bright!
This morning, bright and early, the postman rang the bell and delivered a package for me!
It was filled with some incredible treasures just for me!
Sue included some new Santa’s for my ever growing collection! And, there was yarn!! In the Santa mug is some appropriately named Knit Picks Gloss – Cocoa! Won’t this make some “hot” socks? I am seeing something that has a bit of a swirling pattern – like a nice, hot, creamy cup of hot cocoa! Mmmmmmmmmmm, my fingers are itching to complete my Christmas Knitting so I can cast on something for me!!
There is also a skein of Sugar n Cream cotton to knit a Christmas dishcloth! Sue, I think I can get it done before Christmas!!
She included some great chocolates as well – and she included a Santa Stocking and a sock bag for a take along knit! Sue, I am certain that you made these – and they are just gorgeous!!
I love everything in my package!! Sue, thank you so very, very much!!
The weekend fairly flew by – we got some snow!! I tried to get a photo, but my battery died in the camera. I need to get some batteries today and get a picture or two posted for those of you who will not have a White Christmas! It is looking very much like a Currier and Ives card outside right now!
I am also in need of a “Kitty Time Out” room. There was much mayhem last night by Thing One and Thing Two. I am on the look out for the Cat in the Hat…. I fear he is hiding here somewhere urging the kitties on! I am wondering how I can sleep through the Kitty Shenanigans….by the looks of the house, there must be volumes of noise!
Well, I am off to knit on…. have a blessed Monday all!
