Kitchen Knits Swap
I swore that this year I was not going to do any swaps or KAL's. I didn't want to make promises I couldn't keep & didn't know how much time I would have with my new baby boy. But I saw a swap while surfing blogs & I just couldn't resist.
Marisol started the Kitchen Knits Swap(which I hope she does again) It combined two of my favorite things, knitting & cooking. The idea was that you sent a knitted kitchen-themed item or a kitchen themed pattern with the yarn. A favorite kitchen staple of yours & 3 of your favorite recipes. Along with anything else you might want to throw in.
I received my package yesterday & boy was it GREAT! We all filled out short questionaires for our swap buddy along with putting pictures of our kitchens on the swap site. I got a "tuscany" themed box of goodies. Carla sent some great things; a cookbook, Peaches n' Cream yarn to create the oh-do-cute Nubbins Dishcloth, Ruby Roobis Tea(which I already have tasted, sooo good) dish towels, oven mitts, a recipe for Ratatouille, Ghirardelli Brownie mix and the most beautiful Tuscan themed coffe/tea mug! Thanks Carla, I loved them all!!!! Cheers.
