I signed up a little while back for a yarn swap; I've been seeing all the talk about swaps on blogs and thought it would be fun. The one I found, Yarn Snobs Unite!, was right up my alley; I don't claim to be a yarn snob but I adore natural fibers and was hoping for something that would be a little different. I was surprised to find a little box waiting when I got home!
The Knitstress drew my name, and was I the lucky one! Wonderful soft merino yarn that the sender pointed out comes from a small town seventy miles from Cape Town, South Africa. The card she sent along is charming, with bright spring colors and grand cut-outs. Of course there are delightful sweet treats, with my favorite flavored chocolates for my morning cuppa! Many thanks to my swap partner! I'm gathering up the treasures to send away today; I've been going around to the local shops to get special things to send with the yarn!
