For the swap, we had to take 100g of fibre and spin 50g of it so the recipient can spin the other 50g. We also were told to only send a small non fibre related gift and another 100g of fibre. I love the bouncy 3 ply yarn H spun and I am looking forward to spinning it up, hope I can match hers. The other fibre she sent me is so gorgeous, merino and silk, dyed in the most gorgeous shades, I love it! H and I rebelled and privately did our own thing. I hope she likes her parcel from me, I must post it!
Her OH made me that funny sock giraffe, I was just smiling all the way through opening my presents. Thanks Neek! The Kerastix gauge checker is brilliant and I love the M1 stitch marker that came with it. I have a friend that calls me ‘M1’ so it has a double meaning for me. I had a diz, handmade for me! I will have to look up how to use it on Youtube. I had my eye on one of those for a while….and the shawl pin is so lovely, something I have wanted for ages. There was a candle, a notebook and pen, some gorgeously smelly Lush thingy’s which were packed in popcorn which scattered all over the dining room carpet as I opened the package..! lol I will have to think of someway to get my own back there…oh and I have everything ready for H’s parcel including something little that I made whilst watching the rugby on Valentine’s day. The things we do for love eh? Were you spoiled? I was….totally, but then I always am, every day…. ;^) Oh I really want to show you what I made, it will have to wait!
