I received a message in my Ravelry mail yesterday. My downstream partner received her Sock Yarn Swap From Your Stash (SYSFYS) package. This is what I sent:
She is learning to sew, so I threw in a couple of sewing related items. Her favorite colors are blues, greens, and earthtones. I thought that this yarn that has been sitting in my stash for a few years was the perfect choice for her . The brown tweed has flecks of the colors that she likes in it. It turns out that her husband liked the yarn and she will make socks for him. Since I still have the tools to make jewelry, I went out and purchased the stones for those earrings. They are made of one her favorite colors. Bath and Body Works Shea butter lotion, labels, note cards, and chocolate complete the package.
It was a lot of fun shopping for someone with similar likes. Here is another shot of the labels by themselves. I think I will have to buy some of these for myself.
Have a grea day!
