Can I just say that Gina rocks?! Because she does!! As part of this year's Loopy Ewe Spring Fling, I signed up to do a pre-fling swap. A veteran flinger exchanged with a newbie flinger. And, spoil me, Gina did - above and beyond what she needed to do! Wanna see what she got me?
My package included the following: Fleece Artist Trail Socks in Mermaid, Claudia Hand-Painted in Boot Camp,Zauberball, two project bags by Barb Miller, a 3 AM Enchantments project bag, "Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn" sock book, a stitchsaver that says "ms sox," a cute knitting counter (I'm so gonna put that around my neck at the fling - hee, hee), a cute sheep measuring tape, a view stick so I can see patterns & charts magnified, a Mudhens baseball t-shirt and a great bag for carrying stuff in general. And, that cute little card that says, "Do you ever think you own entirely too much yarn?" (Me neither on the inside). And, each gift had a little hand written note to go along with it. Gina, I can't express enough how generous you were to me... I can't wait until the Fling - it will be here in just a few short weeks. It's going to be a blast!!!!!! Catching up with old friends, making new friends - it's a truly special time for us all. Knitters really are some of the most amazing, kind and generous people I know. And, I feel so fortunate to be a part of this community. They took away all the anxiety I had about going there by myself last year and made me feel welcome instantly!! Oh, and I think I've found that lost knitting mojo - I mean, how can I not after that swap package? Must peruse through my new book! Happy Knitting! : )
