Virtual Vacation Photos

I received my package from the Virtual Vacation Swap while I was sick. So I am finally revealing it to everyone. And no, P, you may not pet the yarn. I know what will happen if I ever let you pet the yarn. 😉

I went to Alaska on my virtual vacation. My hostess was Tammy from Tammy’s Knitting Again. Tammy not only knits, she quilts too. She sent me quilter’s candy along with some yarn.

On to the lovely goodies from Alaska –

There is a nice little hat with Alaska on it in a pale pink-purple color. There is also some tea from Alaska Tea Traders. And a lovely mug in purples with Alaskan wildflowers on it. There are some lovely batiks to use in making a pattern called Nature’s Sweet Kiss. The pattern is from an Alaskan designer. There is some Alaskan sour dough starter. I love sourdough breads. I generally have good luck keeping my starters going once I get them started. I think I feel the urge to start making bread again.

There is also something called Alaskan Bear Breath Mints. I love the tin they are in. There are tons of postcards and a beautiful magnet with Mount McKinley on it. There are flower seeds for wildflowers and irises. There is a nice little tree ornament from Santa’s Village.

But I have saved the best part for last. That little skein sitting next to the picture of the aurora borealis is some hand spun qiviut. Some one in Tammy’s guild spun the yarn!!!!

  1. (Hunting for that bag at her desk now) What yarn… there was yarn in that bag.. Honestly I am innocent. Why do I get accused!
