TNN Yarn Swap V3

Last year it was decided that another yarn swap was in order. I did my first one a few weeks prior and was so excited to get started again.

There's something really special and exciting about making up a parcel for someone that you don't know and may never meet. I love every minute of it.

This is the package I made up for my swappee, the theme was Veneto which is known as the romance language and spoken in Venice and surrounding areas.

The yarn, hand dyed with cake gels

The Stitch Markers

This is what I received in return (and still don't know who sent to me)

The theme is 'Wouldn't it be Nice if the World was Cadbury'. Oh yeah it certainly would :)

There's 200gm of 8 ply wool hand dyed in purple and chocolate tones

The Full Package

The Gift
A really cute hand sculpted Cadbury-esque figurine and a box of chocolates. Yum yum

I can not wait to knit this yarn, the pattern I was sent was for some fingerless gloves. I will give them ago once I have finished a few things that are on my needles at the moment.

I wish I could knit and crochet all day, I have so many projects that I want to do, it's just finding the time to do them :) I am getting quicker so that's making things easier LOL
