What great swap gifts - look at all that yarn! :) There is some beautiful Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Chunky in grass. (Green is my favorite color!) Lu included some lovely Rio de la Plata Merino Yarn in carnation. The color is even so much prettier than it is in the picture. And there is a hank of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in cherry. It's a great color and I'm wondering if it should go into socks or a shawlette. Continuing the hearts and roses theme, Lu put in some delicious cookies, a cute photo album, some wonderful scented soap, and a sweet rose pen. Even her card was heart-themed! Thank you so much, Lu! I love everything and I am planning my knitting projects already. :) And thanks for a fun swap, Lynne!
Speaking of knitting projects, I'm debating about this baby kimono now. Katie helped me figure out a few things. I decided I might not have enough of the Cotton-Ease since I'm increasing the size of the kimono. No problem, I'll just buy some of the TLC Cotton Plus that Katie used. Plus, I'll buy an outfit and get yarn to compliment the outfit colors. Wrong! I found two cute outfits, but nobody around here carries the yarn. I did find an eBay store that sells it, but then I got to thinking that two outfits is already a gift. So now I think I'll send the outfits right away and knit something for the baby later...like for Christmas. :) I'll frog the kimono and reknit it in the newborn size. That way I'll already be ready for the next baby that comes along.
