ISE4 Package!

My package from the International Scarf Exchange arrived today, and it held a treasure trove of surprises. My English swap pal, Saffy, was, in a word, amazing.


She sent some yummy looking British treats, including tea, biscuits, chocolate, and candies.


And the yarn! My goodness.


Some Twilley's of Stamford wool. Gorgeous stuff, and very soft. My pal initially wanted to use this yarn for a scarf, but she sent it along to me instead!


Sock Yarn!

From The Natural Dye Studio.

And what you've all been waiting for....the scarf!

Knitted with wool from The Natural Dye Studio, it's truly a thing of beauty, and in colors I love.

Thanks so much for everything. Now to wait for cool weather.
