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!!
