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!
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.

Hey, I never said it was a matching pair!
These are the Monkey socks I am making for myself. So pretty. I love these colors, and the yarn works really well with the pattern. Yarn, by the way, is from WhiteWillow.
The other pair is the Waving Lace Socks for my Sockapalooza pal. Also from WhiteWillow. The color was supposed to be a blend of Tiffany box blues, but it looks more like a swimming pool to me. The yarn is so soft and when you put the sock on, it almost feels like slipping your foot ito a swimming pool on a hot day.
The downside is I'm not that crazy about the pattern. It seems rather bland to me, but I think my pal will like it. What do you guys think?
We don't do much gardening around here, as you can tell from the grassy state of the flowerbed in front of our house. But today we weeded the whole thing and pulled up as much of the stubborn roots as we could. We're still debating on what to plant there, but here's my visual representation of how I would like it to look:
Lastly, Oliver says hi!
