Incoming, Outgoing

The time for the end of the Rut-Busting Sock Swap is here! That's right, you heard me! The point is to send the person a new yarn or pattern to help them break out of their yarn, color, or pattern rut!

I got a package in the mail on Wednesday from none other than Somerset! (She was also my very first swap pal, back in the Spooky Secret Pal swap last fall!)

What was in the package you ask?

Here it is! Included in the package is a great sock pattern for Savannah Socks. In bath stuff, there is a bar of handmade Lilac soap from Euphoric Bath Goodies and two Citrus Burst Bath Bombs! Perfect timing (as always!) - I am taking a "mini-vaca" tonight....two nights resort stays, dinner in an amazing restaurant, a spa massage tomorrow... Tonight's resort has a jacuzzi I'm going to try out one of those bath bombs!

Oh wait, you want to hear about the yarn? It's a lovely yarn bouquet from Zen Yarn Garden! The hand-dyed colors are GORGEOUS!! And the fiber! 50/50 Superwash Merino/Tencel!

Did I say incoming AND outgoing? to the PO this morning to send off my first International package! Oh, you want to know what's in it? Ok, here's a picture of the part that I spun...the rest you'll have to see when my lovely downstream receives it.

This too is Superwash Merino and Tencel and is another of the lovely dye creations of FatCatKnits!
