Saved the Best for Last!

My swap buddy (ShadKitty) was interrupted mid-swap by life, but it didn't stop her from sending me an awesome swap box! It started off with a t-shirt from CafePress to keep my Dark Passenger riding shotgun until the rest of the goodies arrived. And then today I got the big box of good stuff.


The lovely ShadKitty, despite sick kids & a husband returning home ( :D !!) put together:

A Clean Kill Kit: latex gloves (powderless, equally perfect for keeping hands blood, dye or onion free), a poncho (going to be serving double duty since I live in rainy Seattle), a shower cap & a syringe.
Cough drops (have to make sure I don't drop any wrappers)
Lots of dark chocolate (very important)
And the fibery goodness: Fibranatura Yummy sock yarn, two skeins of Crystal Palace Taos, a braid of Traveling Rhinos wool roving, and a braid of moss green roving (feels like wool).

I think my favorite thing about swaps is either the anticipation or getting gorgeous fiber I would never pick for myself. My stash was getting a little too purple/blue lately, ShadKitty provided it with a much needed infusion of spring!

And I can't wait for the next swap!
