Two days in a row -- don't faint!

Well I suppose anyone can do something two days in a row huh?

I uploaded a few pictures which will be gracing you over the next few days as I am posting while working, so yes I cheated a little. Than again does pre-planning constitute cheating or being well prepared and knowing the subject (me)?

We are recently tieing up International Scarf Exchange 6 and while I hope to join ISE7 I hope that it doesn't start too soon as I was having trouble garnering interest in making a scarf when were headed to warm weather here. I didn't take any pics of mine that I sent off (wasn't that organized, you can see it here. I used a variation on January STR lace pattern. The yarn was Alpaca, so soft and wonderful!

In excahange, Crafty Bernie from England sent me this wonderful surprise.

Not one but TWO (2) pieces pieces of lace (individual pics to follow), Cool Postcards, a skein of yarn and a need soap holder/washrag.

I do enjoy these swaps.

Chat soon - Karrie

Oh how nice! I did ISE3 and 5, but I've since dropped out for awhile. It seems I've got too much to knit for family members to take time off to knit for others!

Oh well, hopefully I'll be able to rejoin sometime in the future. It's a lot of fun, isn't it?

You got some really great stuff there!

Loved the color of the scarf you made (pink always wins with me!!). And that pincushion was just adorable. Looks like you got a really great scarf package yourself.

I've never done this before myself. Guess I should contemplate giving it a whirl.

p.s. good luck with your 30 posts in 30 days too ;)

That's nice! My pal told me that she's sent off the scarf, but I haven't received it yet. I can't wait !

I love both the scarf you made, and the ones you received! Neat swap for you! I'm waiting with baited breath for my scarf...
