My swap partner really did a great job figuring out what I would like. This is the first swap I have done within the Ravelry community, and it was a great experience. I just sent a package to my swap recipient on Tuesday. She should have it by the middle of next week or so. Look at what I scored:

The hat is Fleece Artist Casbah, in the amethyst colourway, which just happens to be one of my favourites. The rules of the swap were to knit one item for your recipient, and then include other gifts, with a minimum and maximum dollar value assigned to the package.

Pamela sent me a skein of Fiesta Boomerang in “Pansies”. It will make a good pair of thick socks, I think. The See’s chocolates are fantastic. One of the little tins is “Rose Salve” which I haven’t opened yet. The little tin with the roses on it contains little chocolate candies that are like the world’s smallest M&Ms. It will be great for holding applique pins when it’s empty. Pamela is curious about what was in that tin, so I took a not-so-great photo of it (sorry, it’s dark here already):

Thanks, Pamela, I love my swap gear! Michelle, I hope you will love yours, too.
