(Photo editing can make even weeds look pretty)

As I have admitted before, I like swaps. I have photos to prove it. First up are the photos from the Lime and Violet Sock PrOn swap on the message boards. My package came all the way from England. And from the Peaks District no less. Yes, the Peaks District of Pride and Prejudice fame. (edited to add: My partner was Miss Shine of Apocalypse Knitting)
My partner was Helen. (Helen if you have a blog, please let me know!!!) Helen sent me a skien of Posh Yarns Emily. This is a cashmere blend yarn!!!Helen says it is LUSH!!! The color name is Tantivy if I am reading the label correctly. The colors are blue, purples, pinks, brown and coral. It looks yummy. She send me a pencil with a sheep topper. There was also a bar of Romney’s Kendal Mint Cake.
And the cutest thing, next to the yarn and the post card, was a little bunny that she crocheted out of sock yarn. The bunny is sitting right at the bottom of my computer screen right now.
And from yarn we go to candy. I took part in “Another International Candy Swap” on Swap-Bot. I received my package yesterday from Hege in Norway. Since everyone at the post office likes to see what I get in my swap packages, I had to ope it there. And Dennis, one of the few males at my post office, was having fun. He speaks German and was trying to figure out what the candy was. He was able to pick out of to some the words. He did ask if I would share of the candy with him and I did tell him yes. The candy he wants to try is the candy in the big yellow bag with the trolls on it. And I think the Kermit sock wants to try it to since Kermit wanted to be on the photo shot. I forgot to write down all of the names of the candy but I will let you know how it tastes after I try it. (My niece and nephew haven’t seen the candy yet, so I may not share with them. They are getting Pocky instead.) 🙂
