I alluded to this last week – a fantastic holiday fiber arts swap and some goodies.
Background: Four years ago I participated in a swap with a Ravelry Knit Picks group and met my wonderful friend Nicky (you can check out her blog here). This year we decided to resurrect the swap just between us. Same guidelines (mostly) as four years ago and we shipped early enough that it would arrive before Christmas. Then, to sweeten the exchange we decided to open our swap packages together via Skype the morning of Christmas Eve. On to the good stuff!
Sock yarn hand-dyed by my friend. It’s a deep, vibrant purple with bluish undertones. She only started dying this year and her work is amazing. I’m privileged to be one of two people that has hand-dyed fiber from her.
- Beautiful handmade stitch markers
- Gray beads for lacework
- Two sock knitting patterns (toe-up, of course)
- Jeweled bookmark
- Apple slicer (due to that little issue a month and some ago)
Thank you so much Nicky!
