Bring on the Bling!

Over on Ravelry, I am a member of the The Swap Stop group.  It's a lovely bunch of ladies who swap year-round.  Well... not entirely year-round.  There's nothing going on in December.  I started swapping with them at the beginning of this year and participated in every swap.  This last swap, titled All About The Bling, is the last one of the year.  <<cue sad trombone music>>

Anyways!  Onward with the blingage.  I had a lovely swap partner.  She has a public knitting blog here.  When I heard that I was going to be spoiled by her, I was so excited.  I've taken notice of the packages she sends her partners, and she does not skimp.  I don't know how she thinks of every detail, but she does.  Her packages are awesome.

And without further adieu, I bring you my bling.

She had each package numbered, and being the type A that I am, had to open them in that order.  But first, the card, because you're always supposed to open the card first, right?  To be polite?

Ohokay!!  Will do!


It was overwhelming, but definitely in a good way.  In my package, she included a skein of Plymouth Yarn's Dye For Me baby llama glow, a handmade project bag, mini Soak samples, dye packets (hello!), Ysolda's Whimsical Little Knits #1, a Tooley Owl pattern, a super cute owl folder to house the patterns, sparkly handmade stitch markers, a sparkly tape measure, a sparkly Audrey Hepburn note pad (sensing a trend here?  sparkle for the win!), Bath & Body Works antibacs with a plastic holder that has gems on it, a keychain with a teeny tiny sparkly skein of yarn, and delicious chocolates (Ghirardelli minis and a bar from The Tea Room).

Here is a close up of the yarn and project bag.  She made the project bag herself.  It is Paris themed.  If Paris ain't bling, I don't know what is.

Oh, and one more thing...

I just had to put a ring on it!
