Score! L n V pal rocks!

lnv

Check it out. I got a great pile of yarn from my Lime N Violet swap partner. Check out the Socks that Rock in Xmas Rock - the texture of the yarn is ooh so Koigu. Love it! And then Violet's Pink Ribbon from Lisa Souza - to commemorate Violet's current battle with breast cancer, I am wondering what this will be? Maybe part of a chevron scarf I am seeing all over, maybe some lickable socks? Then there was also two bulky pink softies - hmm, a scarf for me? Maybe my daughter? We'll have to wait and see. And then I got two skeins of Paperdolls from Knitpicks, some Confetti sock yarn with blues, greys and purple (yay!) and candy - lots of it, I ate some before it could make the photo shoot. I'm quite content here admiring my new stash enhancement and nibbling on goodies. Thank you L n V pal!!

Probably the best thing about this package was it came on a day when I was a real grumpus, nothing could go right, 7" of snow in April - so it was a serious mood booster - thank you.

This day...
note our spring flag...
3 days later it is entirely melted and we'll be biking on the trail today - only in Wisconsin.

Whoa! Awesome! I'm so jealous... kinda a bummer for me, it was the first Secret Pal thingeee I've joined, and I never heard from anyone. I did have fun with the blogger name I got though!

Kudos to you for jigging work and running off to the candy store! Why didn't you pick me up on the way! :-) Gorgeous swag! I love the verigated candy colors!

So glad you got it and that it brightened your day. I always worry about what to send people, but sock yarn seemed a pretty safe bet. ☺

We have had crazy weather here, as well - beautiful sun, melting everything, then snow. Then sun. Then snow. But at least it's not dark anymore!

cheers! your lnv pal, hickorie
