To the Post Office Tuesday.... Mailing my Blog Hub Swap Box
|The Blog Hub discussion starts here.|
We agreed to answer a number of questions, create a wish list of sorts, and then in turn spend $40.00 on the contents of a box of gifts for a stranger. One item had to be 100 grams of yarn, another had to be a pattern we think our partner might like, and lastly, we had to include a packet of local flavor. In total we are shipping seven packages which will be opened one per day and then blogged about. I have enjoyed reading the posts of the members who have received their boxes. Packing this box has been a lot like how I pack for vacation.... once the seven items were decided on and wrapped, I kept finding other things I felt should be added in. My partner may be the one who has more items to post about than others. I apologize in advance......

On a different topic, I wanted to share some information I have gathered over the past few days. I'll start with Stitch House. Lauren and I went to Knit Night on Friday and there was a lively group with so many threads of conversation going that I wished I could freeze frame and replay each story or tale and not miss anything. Three of us cast on for our KAL of the Braided Swirl Tam.

One of the scarves I snapped photos of in my post about Stitch House has me intrigued, so I sought it out and took a couple flat pictures and looked up the pattern. It is called Beaded Eyelet Shapely Shawlette by Judy Pascale.The beads give it such a beautiful drape and so I may queue this pattern and search the stash for yarn.
