Sock Yarn Swap

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.

  1. Yay- you finally got it! I was nervous that somehow you wouldn’t get a package…. Happy that it all worked out! Looks like you made out like a bandit (especially in the notiony dept.!) We wish that you were joining us in Rhinebeck too! I was going to have you push me around in an adult-sized stroller- now I have to get a Lark Cart 😉 Have a blast @ your fiber festival- I want all the details!

  2. Just to let you know, If you were thinking of making me something, I like the bluish with a little purple yarn at the bottom left of the page. You know why!!!! Love ya!

  3. That multi colored yarn that is unmarked is the harry potter color way from opal. I loved they concept of the yarn but couldn’t find anything to make with it.
