Bag Swap

I’m on Ravelry (as yarnaboutyarn) and in the Aussie Knitters group. Recently we had a Bag Lady Bag Swap. Today my parcel arrived & I love it! I know, you hear people say “I love it!” about all swap parcels (& everything else) these days. But I truly love it!

Q (not sure if she wants to be identified here) did a wonderful job in stalking me & getting to know my likes & dislikes (either that or it was pure luck!).

I received a gorgeous bag, all beautifully lined too:

and all these lovely goodies:

Q included the Japanese pattern book that the bag pattern was from, with a lovely crocheted bookmark to show me the page. I love Japanese knitting/crochet books so this will be treasured. It contains a heap of things I would like to make from crochet flowers to hats to scarves to tops, it’s all in here.

There was also some Rowan Kidsilk Spray in a deep pinky red. I’ve been rubbing it around my face & it doesn’t irritate my nose like other mohair does so I may have to get more of this & it’s such a gorgeous colour. Also included was some gold yarn to add some bling to a freeform project, Soak for washing my woollens & yummy chocolate.

Made my day! Thanks Q
