Over the Moon with the second swap box TOO

Well, the other swap box arrived yesterday. Look at all that tape holding it together. Fireman couldn't believe it when he opened it for me. He practically jumped back when the yarn started flying out......
You are all amazing and generous people. This box too, was overstuffed with wonderful knitterly things. Books: Knit2together by Ullma and Clark, the newest Interweave Magazine, and Knitting Patterns by Melissa volume one Babies to Toddlers. Yarny goodness including Tuesday Night Cowl package with classic Elite WINGS yarn in a soft periwinkle that I adore. A little sewing kit which I desperately needed. Labels that are pink and precious .

Marguerite knitted these socks for me knowing she was last and they would get to me! Oh M, you really are wonderful. I love the socks. The little green elf or doll is adorable....who knit that one?

And as if I wasn't spoiled enough, Grace sent me another gift: this great headband came with her kitty blanket donations.

I will be highlighting more things that arrived in both boxes. Truly, I want to thank each and everyone of you for playing Take and Replace. I was nervous about everyone being happy and the boxes not getting lost in the wild winter weather and all.....
and it all turned out really amazing.

Thanks!

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

LOVE those socks! I'm so glad you're getting spoiled. I need to knit again... I need to finish that baby blanket so I can knit me an ear/hair/headband for these walks the fur-girls are demanding.

Hi Kathy~ I made the little green gnome, just thought I would add a little whimsy to the swap! Also glad you liked the malabrigo chunky~one of my favorites and I too am enjoying my copy of Interweave Knits. The swap was so much fun, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning opening the box. I was really worried that I had not put enough tape on the box when I sent it off to Marguerite, glad to see it arrived in one piece!!!
