I joined a sock yarn round robin swap on Ravelry back in May, and to make a long story shorter, I just got it a little over a week ago. There were some ups and downs, a swap stealer, and many fun and cooperative swappers to get things back on track. And since I organized this round and sent off the first box, I got to keep the completed box and all it contents. Yipeeee!
There is more yarn and fun stuff here than I even know what to do with. There is enough yarn to make 7 pairs of socks, buttons and beads galore, stitch markers, notepads, a project bag, a notion bag, a much-loved pattern book, and a cross-stitch kit. Good thing I did a major destash before the move or I never would have had room for all of this. Of course, some of the yarn is not quite in my favorite color palette, so it might get passed on in another swap. But there’s some great treats here. I particularly like the autumnal skein of Mountain Colors, the knitting-themed stitch markers, the brown project bag, and the bumble bee buttons. Thanks to all my fellow Ravelry swappers for contributing.
