So right after I joined in on the Once Upon a Sock posts, there was a stash yarn swap organized. I love a swap! It was a secret up/down swap. So I sent to someone who was not the person sending to me....
I got my parcel awhile ago, but haven't done a proper blog post about it.....and I know she's been waiting...I apologize for the delay....
So my secret swapper turned out to be Paula from Spin a Yarn. I kind of had an inkling it was me when she posted about stalking her swapee. I can be sneaky, so when she said we have a lot in common and even have the same yarn, I checked her Ravelry stash page and on the first page saw 3 yarns that we had the same (LOL)....I didn't friend her, because I didn't want her to know I'd looked it up....(I'm also very good at guessing gifts, my husband has taken to disguising them) Yes, I'm also one of those people that doesn't mind spoilers (I'm an IMDB addict) and will read the end of a book before finishing it.
I laughed with delight when I opened my package and found String Theory Continuum yarn in Mandrake. I have looked at this yarn at least three times, but always decided to wait!!! It's made of my favorite colors, green and purple....and called Mandrake, which to me brings to mind Harry Potter and poor Neville (one of my favorite characters) So this was a hit on many levels!
Then, she sent a bag of Gummi Bears.....yum, yum!!!! And the good ones too!
The kitchener stitch keychain is pretty awesome...I'm not sure who it is by, but I love the lobster claw clasp...I have one from Katrinkles that resides on my sock knitting notebook, so this one is going to reside on my travel pouch of accessories!
And last, but so not least, knitting jewelry!!!!! A stitchmarker bracelet from Heidi and Lana.....It's perfect AND the best thing is it fits! I have super tiny wrists and bracelets fall off all the time....I love it!!!!!
So the whole package was deeply appreciated and loved...Thank you Paula....and yes how did you find my Ravelry? You mentioned something in one of your comments.....as my Ravelry name is not connected to my instagram name (which is how I found you!)
Thank you, thank you!!!!
