Another package and another project

I got another package in the mail. This is my puffy from Charlotte, my exchange partner in the 1Dishcloth group. The colors don't show as bright in the photo but the dishcloth is white and yellow varigated. It goes from a light yellow to a pretty bright yellow. It's so pretty. She also sent me two packages of point protectors which I SO desperately need and a little travel size sewing kit. I think the kit will be perfect to take on camping trips. It amazes me how these ladies just seem to know what to include in their puffys. I'm always worried I don't put in the right things as I am still new at doing exchanges. Thanks so much, Charlotte. I love the colors and it's nice to get something I really needed but can't remember to buy. lol


I found a very pretty pattern for a lace wrap that I am using to knit up my Malabrigo yarn. This is the very beginning of the wrap. It's a really easy pattern that knits up fairly quickly. I will post patterns of my progress. I have knitted it a little further than this now and it's starting to look so pretty. The softness of this wool yarn still surprises me.

Mandi, The swap was in a group called KnittingNascarFans. They are a fun group of knitters who also happen to love Nascar. Racing isn't just for the men folks! lol If you like Nascar, come join us...we'd love to have you.

That lil swap was the 1dishcloth group. We do exchanges pretty often and everyone is super nice. So sorry for my scatter brain"ness"...it's been a long day. We had a pool party for my daughter and it's late and I'm exhausted. If you scroll down, you'll see my other goodies from the Nascar knitting group.
