Coffee Swap Received!

Friday afternoon, I finally got my coffee swap package. I squealed and opened it quickly. I got spoiled with six skeins of yarn. (Excuse the date on the picture...My camera doesn't like me anymore!)

The fun part about swaps is that most of the stuff in my package is things I wouldn't normally purchase for myself, such as the Wildfoote sock yarn from Brown Sheep.

In my packaged, I got...
  • Four skeins of Knick Picks Andean Sick in Sangria
  • Two skeins of Brown Sheep Company's Wildfoote sock yarn in Soft Jazz
  • An espresso cup with saucer, just plain white and rather chic
  • A purple candle that smells very pretty
  • Smarties!
  • Chocolate coins from Disney
  • Avon hand cream/lotion
  • A box of organic, fair trade tea, caffiene free that sounds great for night time
  • A sample of Blueberry herbal tea
  • And one whole pound of Ethiopian coffee, that is quite yummy.

Thank you Mya from Aurora!

Coffee & Cashmere,

Boyfriend Scarf!

Because I love to knit so much, and I'm dearly fond of my boyfriend, I'm going to make him a scarf! And not just any scarf, but Knitty's Danica! It's going to be a lightish cerelean blue and black. I went to buy yarn yesterday at my awesome LYS but Emily was all out of black Cascade 220! She just ordered some more and it should be in after Thanksgiving probably. And since James (The boyfriend) wants it to be more black than blue, I need to wait to cast on!

I can't wait. ^_^

In other news, I spent last week taking about 40 pictures of my yarn stash for Ravelry. O-M-G that website is so addicting!

I finished my moss stitch scarf last night while watching "Fever Pitch" (cute movie btw). I need to weave in the ends and block it now! It's gorgeous too, and I can't wait to wear it.

Still no word from my swap partner... I want my package!! I just hope I get fun goodies. I can't wait to see what yarn he or she got me.

Ravelry Addict

It's official. I'm addicted to Ravelry. I even donated a dollar so I could feel good about my addiction. =)

I signed up for a billion groups, including House and Gilmore Girls!

I also signed up for the Caffiene Addicts Swap 2, and I've mailed off my package to my spoilee, a high school science teacher in Alaska. She already received everything, and just loved it all! I felt soo good Friday night when I saw her blog post about the package. I can't wait to see what she makes from the yarn.

I still haven't gotten my box.
