I finished off 2014 with one more swap to a buddy in the United States.  This was such a fun swap, I had lots of fun knitting these socks for her, making her some special stitch markers, and putting her gifts and goodies together.

I also received two swap packages in the mail.  Just in time for Christmas, it felt like Santa was being specially nice and sending all the goodies I love.

The one package, from New Mexico, included stunning yarn from The Painted Tiger, socks, a hat and mittens, a cute pin, lovely candles and chocolates, and a most useful row counter bracelet! In Blue!  How did they know?  I don’t have one and adore it.

My other package was all the way from Washington State, and included one of my favourite yarns, Manos in Handspun.  I love the scarf that was knitted and gifted to me, it is so soft and drapes beautifully.  I am looking forward to winter to wear this beauty.

Details of the scarf is here.  🙂

This was a special and perfect way to wrap up my 2014 and take a break for the Summer Holidays.
