Swap Surprise!

Members of the UAE Knitters group in Ravelry arranged a swap a few months ago. We didn’t really have anything specific to adhere to apart from a few guidelines but it was just to test the appetite for such a swap. Members join swaps in Ravelry all the time so I thought maybe we could do it within the same country.

Due to holidays and work schedule we could not quite agree on one date to do a swap reveal. Slowly, members have been exchanging swap packages over the last few weeks. My swap partner, Louise is off to the UK soon so she gave me my swap package yesterday. Yay!
I couldn’t wait to get home to open each carefully wrapped item. And here they are: a hand-knitted little tote bag (so pretty!), a bottle of grenadine eau de parfum which smells heavenly, a box of melon-scented potpourri, 3 balls of bamboo yarn and a box containing 80 sachets of the best tea in Britain!
The bag has cables and baubles and it is made out of the softest yarn. Roomy too! Watch out for me with this bag in the malls in the coming weeks and months to come.
The best cup of tea in Britain. I can’t wait to brew a cuppa.
The moment I unwrapped these balls of yarn, I instantly knew I want to knit a Phiaro scarf with them.
That was a wonderful package, Louise. Thank you very much! Enjoy your holiday and see you again soon. Hopefully with the Phiaro all done.
