No Sheep For You No. 5 Swap
On ravelry they have many groups that run swaps for different things. I have joined in a few and they are always fun (unless your parcel is lost) which hasnt happened to me as yet. I do hope my swap parcel receives her parcel soon or I will be a little bit worried. My swap partner was Janet and she sent me a nice present all contained in the little bag pictured at the top. I received some lovely green tea which is supposed to be refreshing. Perhaps I need a cup today with this hot weather we are having. I also received 2 knitted dishcloths, a bar of spearmint soap which smells so good, and a beautiful scarf which she knit using some Debbie Bliss silk yarn. It is quite beautiful and I dont think I could master knitting that. Isabelle spied the scarf too and had to try it on straight away declaring how beautiful and soft it was. I did explain that she was not to sneak it out of my room and wear it. Thankfully the weather has been too hot for her to want to wear a scarf so I think I am safe. Thankyou Janet for your lovely parcel. Now back to knitting that second green sock that has been sitting there for months.
