|I have been awaiting the arrival of this package with impatience.... Thanks PeatMoss83!!!|
Blog Hug Yarn Swap Day 1
I got it! My package was waiting for me when I got home this afternoon. Imagine my excitement, and on top of a box of goodies for me, it is snowing here in Boston.... finally! Colleagues at work were debating whether or not we stood a chance of getting tomorrow as a snow day. I have yet to even go check out the weather because I was spilling out the contents of my box and sorting through the spring green and aqua wrapped packages to snap a picture and open gift number one.

It is a white bag like those I remember from the penny candy days. The label reads, "Something for your sweet tooth!". I peek into the bag and see a cluster of chocolates from a place called Trecaso's Mary Coyle, Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor and Fine Italian Cuisine. Hmmmm, this is such a good fit, sweets, old school ice cream AND italian food? Andrea included a menu and I'm torn between ordering the Eggplant parm, ( my favorite) or the Spaghetti ad aglio e olio ( spaghetti with garlic and olive oil). On the back is a list of the yummy ice cream flavors and a beverage called Phosphates, soda water mixed with cherry, lime, strawberry, etc. I'll have one of those too.

The tiny bit I can tell you about my swap buddy is that she is from Ohio, and she writes a blog called Life on Laffer. She lives in Akron, has two dogs, and her Ravelry page says she has four original designs!
Thank you Andrea. I am off to peruse the blog, project pages, and pattern designs of my swap buddy. More tomorrow. (Cheshire cat smile, chocolate, bliss).
