More Packages & More Progress

I have progress to report on the wrap, I'm 50% done. I'm sure it will look much better once finished & blocked, it's a bit wavy at the moment. We'll see who finishes first, me with my wrap, or Chan with her Clappy. (probably Chan) he he!And I'm using a couple of my Easter Egg Chick markers to mark the border just because I can.Let me see.... what did I get since this weekend..... I received my Valentine's Dishcloth Swap package from Angela, this was the swap we were signed up for when our group disbanded for some reason... however Angela & I decided to follow through with our packages. :) She sent a great B&W dishcloth that goes great in my kitchen, another skein of the same yarn, a Valentine's monkey, compact mirror, a bunch of Valentine erasers, & 2 cute towels. Thanks Angela! I'm glad we got to meet before the group went klapunk.



I also got my Longing for Spring Swap package today! It came from Jenn, It included a pretty flower card with a nice note inside, this lovely little bag with pretty spring flowers on the outside & polka dots on the inside, yummy smelling Mango lotion, some Snickers Eggs & Gummy Bears (can't wait to dig into those!), and a felted bracelet kit, how sweet is that?! Of course I pulled my current project out of the old bag I was using & promptly put it in my new bag! And here is a closeup of the really neat Blooms Bracelet kit, I've seen these online & thought they were so cute but never thought of buying one, I'm so glad she did! This will be a fun & fast little project. Thanks so much Jenn, I just love everything!

You guys are all saying, wow, how did she rate all of those great packages?! Well, I have some awesome swap buddies, that's how! I kind of went a little crazy after the first of the year & joined a bunch of swaps, but I'm done now. I am just waiting on one package from Cass & that will be it for the swap packages for a while. Poor Cass, she got my dishcloth exchange package all ready to go, went & mailed it, now it's lost in mail land somewhere & we can't find it!!! I sure hope it turns up, I'd hate for that package to be lost forever, I'm sure there was some awesome stuff in there! And I really hate for Cass to have to do 2 packages for me, even though I know that's what she is doing. :)

I'm off to get cracking on that wrap for a little while before bed.....

I'm glad I don't have to place a bet on who will finish first but both you gals are knitting feinds. Love the color of your wrap. Great swap bounty. I've seen that bracelet kit. Looking forward to seeing it finished. I only joined the KVVS last year. That is how I met so many people. 1 a year is good for me. I hope Ann does it again this year.

What great packages! I hate to hear Cass's got lost in the mail. Hopefully it'll turn up. I've had that happen to one of my packages, but everything worked out in the end. :-)

Hey you! This is hard.. two of my friends are in a race??? Who to cheer? I want to cheer for both of y'all! :-)

The wrap looks loverly and I love all your swap packages... I sure hope Cass's arrives soon... I too have had a 'missing in mail land' package... that eventually arrived... but it was stressing me out... really... Cass had me for a previous swap and it was such a nice package that she sent!

I too am done swapping for a while anyway.. I was involved in so many this past year.. .it was just nutty! But I loved it to pieces! So fun and I met so many lovely people! Hey.. we're coming to NC in June.. and spending a week at Topsail.. I'm sure we can find a way to sneak off together if you want ! ;-)
