I participated in my very first Ravelry swap this fall as part of the Knit1Geek2 podcast group. I’ll link to my swap package later, when my recipient gets their box, but for now I’ll just squee about the box I got in the mail today!
The guidelines were:
- Something handmade
- Something local
- Something geeky
Man, did my swapper do a great job!
Here are the wrapped packages:
Here’s a closeup of the pin she included, which is knitted and embroidered and just knocks my socks off. It’s even more beautiful in real life:
Then there are the contents of the packages. Yarn first:
The colorway is “Call me WonderWoman”! It’s Corriedale/nylon sock yarn, and I LOVE it.
Geeky items-wise, this swapper outdid herself. First up, an Avengers Age of Ultron lunchbox, which held all the other items, individually wrapped.
Then a bunch of little geeky owl bookmarks, delicious chocolate, and T-pins and a Captain America tin of candy to use to hold stitch markers!
But best last: the handmade item. I got a BEAUTIFUL alpaca lace shawl. Oh my god, the picture does not do this justice. I am SO DELIGHTED, I had to wear it today. It is SO LOVELY. It glitters in the light, and the pattern is just beautiful.
In summary: Thank you, swap partner! You rock!
