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.

Lovely - Lovely package! That tea looks pretty yummy - Man I could sure use a cup right now I'm a little cold:)

Take Care Keana and thanks so much for participating in my first swap ever!!!

Keanna, I'm so glad you got it (and I'm actually personally horrified that it was late!
You didn't mention the maque choux recipe.. please tell me it was in the box! The husband dropped it off at the UPS store and had them pack it.. if it wasn't in the box, they may have left it out (and I'll be ticked off)

Anyway, if its not there, I can email it to you or send you another handwritten copy.
