I immediately made myself a cup of the Cranberry Blood Orange from The Republic of Tea and tasted a few Ovation sticks. What a wonderful treat after a day like that!
And hidden in among all the goodies were these little darlings with a hand made dish cloth - my first hand made knitted gift!!! How lucky of a gal am I? I love the look of how the stitches appear to change direction and would love to try this pattern myself.
And what swap package would be complete without some exciting pattens to thumb through, plan for, and build up the stash for??? The book makes those boring scarves come to life and will certainly have me rethinking going back to scarves for some Christmas gift giving.
As you can see, I have a nice relaxing tea time a head of me.
