Swap from Karen

I received my swap package from Karen today.  It was actually delivered yesterday but I didn't get it until today (does that make sense).

In any event, it was a fab swap box.  I apologize for the bad pic but my camera's batteries were dead and so this was taken with my cell phone.

Buffalo West Wing by Julie Hyzy . . . I have not read it and it includes recipes
One More Skein by Leigh Radford . . . I love one skein projects because my knitter's ADHD just kicks in if I make too big projects.
Knit Picks needles, 40 inch cable, size 2 . . . perfect for lace . . . my new passion (you can see one or two at my blog.
A really nice cloth, too pretty to use to wash dishes
A pair of yoga socks (they do fit)
A bar of loverly soap, which I won't use, but will put in amongst my yarns to make them smell loverly!
A skein of Lorna's Lace, Shepherd sock in Flamingo Stripe.  You can't really see the colors in the above photo but this one works:

isn't it loverly.

I have to be honest, I am going to hide the yarn from my 18 year old because she would claim it.

The very serendipity event of this swap was that when I saw the box that my swap came in, I laughed because, I had sent off my box to Karen in a Knitpicks box too!

Thanks so much Karen.  It was a grand swap.  It came on a perfect day with Cleveland being gloomy, gray and snowy.  I hope you enjoy your goodies too.
