My Knit 1,Tea 2 swap package arrived Saturday!
In keeping with the “colour” theme for this swap, my package was definitely “green”: an All-Natural, Organic swap package!
I love opening up Good Mail…
There are organic teas (mmm, rooibos), cookies (already munched), and organic dark chocolate (yay!), complete with the most awesome heart-shaped snappy one-cup tea strainer:
There is a copy of KNIT.1 magazine‘s “green issue” (which I have almost bought more than once: great call!) and some delicious-smelling handsoap:
There is a great set of felted coasters, so prettily tied:
These have won the Dru stamp of approval — he has complimented both colour choice and perfection of felting several times!!
And of course, there was yarn! B.C. indy dyer Indigo Moon*:
Indigo Moon Vancouver series 100% superwash merino, “Emerald” colourway. I feel some leaf-lace socks coming on…
THANK YOU MONICA!!
My own K1T2 package has gone out today, and I think my pal will enjoy is when it arrives (should be soon, too, yay for expedited shipping!). For the ‘knitted gift’ part of the swap, I made her an autumnal tea cosy on the fly — what do you think?
Would anyone like me to post the pattern?
*Do you really know the dyer personally, Monica? If so, send her my compliments!!

Nice mail. I love the green of the wool, I shall have to check out that seller. Oh and I love the tea cozy. I have been contemplating making one of those for a bit, now I am inspired.
YAY! I’m so glad you like the package! I had *sooo* much fun putting it together for you. I dragged my boyfriend to so many different stores just to find the perfect organic goodies. Vancouver is awesome for organic/all-naturals. I really couldn’t decide between an organic black tea or an organic red… and I was so torn between bags and loose! I hope you enjoy a nice warm cuppa!
I *wish* I knew Trish Moon personally! But it’s more like local-fame in that knitters in the area know the name “Indigo Moon”. It’s really popular among the sock knitters I know.
I’m so glad even Dru likes the coasters… it was my first ever felting project and now I’m trying Fiber Trends Felt Clogs!
Anyway – Enjoy! I am so glad you liked the package! I had oodles of fun and can’t wait to see what you make out of the Emerald sock yarn!!
Awesome package. And yes, I most certainly would like you to post the pattern for the beautiful tea cozy. Pretty Please.
Great package indeed. As one who actually uses a cozy in the colder months, I’d love the pattern. The only one I have for my big pot is cloth, and I have this cute little pot I purchased while shopping for my pal (ehmmm…) that wants a cozy too!
Please do post the pattern to your tea cosy it’s beautiful!
Yeah for good mail!
The tea cozy is too cute. By all means hook us up with the pattern, I never say no to new patterns.. *hides file folder bursting with patterns*
