Ravelry Swap

I joined my first ever swap on Ravelry this month and was part of a Summer Swap. I had a great time researching my partner and finding things she would like. I even managed to finally get the box in the mail this morning before running errands with my husband. When we got home...

Chris was making fun of me the whole time because everything I unwrapped I squealed over! He was amazed at how well my partner, MuddyMoose, knew me!
Wanna see my stuff??
: )

How cute is the message on my box?! I almost got yelled at for “ordering” something… and then he saw the note!

LOOK at all these cool things!

There are two cookbooks… cupcakes and ice cream ! My tummy is rumbling just thinking about it!
Also Yarn Harlot’s book, Things I learned from knitting. I got daisy print AND cupcake print baking cups… now I have no excuse not to start in on the recipes in the cupcake book right away! And MuddyMoose handmade the cutest coasters and tea towel/napkins!
There is an adorable spool of ribbon with flowers which I love! And button pins from Ravelry… one with BOB!!!
A cookie cutter in the shape of my favorite food, an ice cream cone! A bag of buttons! Cute buttons! Dogs and flowers and such…
A tiny bracelet that is perfect for my tiny wrist, mini note cards, a wine bottle stopper, a tin for my button collection (which keeps growing and growing!), magnets, cupcake paper and pencils, a sample skein of recycled yarn and a sample skein of handspun (I’d love to be able to spin someday!!), and ice cube trays shaped like lemon wedges (I can’t wait to make lemonade and freeze it in those trays!).
There was also #3 bamboo needles and 2 skeins of Sugar n’ Cream yarn (hot green and hot blue) to make the summer dishcloth patterns she sent as well!
More patterns for a garden bracelet and, MuddyMoose didn’t leave out my babies, a pattern for catnip mousies! Yay! Maybe I can wrestle my first knitted toy away from Clementine with the temptation of one of these!

More photos!

One more thing! Last but certainly not least!
TREATS for my puppies! They are her dogs’ favorite and I can smell why! lol…
You can see that mine love them too!
Everyone at attention:




MuddyMoose did FANTASTIC!
I know there are a thousand exclamation points in this post but that’s exactly how I feel!
