Yep my faith has indeed been restored in swaps! LOL This was my 4th one! YAH!
The Back2School swap was a timely short and sweet one! Which is why I signed up! :o)
It revolved around what supplies are in your space (at least 3 items) that inspire you! And this swap was open to anyone (not just knitters/crocheters).
My swapper, Janet a.k.a. TwistedKnitter, was a perfect match because we are both knitters and love to stamp! It was such a pleasure getting to know Janet and making a new e-friend!
Well my package came and this is what I got!
I received a clipboard that will help me keep my patterns from falling off my lap! Note cards to write out those tricky patterns, lots of color pens to mark up those patterns and some more awesome highlighter tape (again get some already)! The funny thing is I sent her some too for her package! :op We were so in sync with that! LOL
I also received post-its, scissors, a pen protector bag, and some Soak samples that I have been wanting to try out! Not to mention the notable coil-less pins that EZ recommends as stitch makers. Great! :o)
But what I absolutely LOVED the most was my Knit-it Greeting Cards book!! I was beaming from ear to ear when I saw it! It has pictures and instructions of knits that you could place on handmade greeting cards!! YAH!!
I had been trying to figure out how I could incorporate the two hobbies together!! I had checked around and looked everywhere for stamps related to knitting and there are NONE! So this was perfect!! Now I can make good use of my scrap yarns for wonderful greeting cards to send to other e-knitter pals!!!! I just LOVE IT!!
Thank you so much Janet for making such a thoughtful Back2School package you were a great swap pal!
