ahhh...sweet knitty treats

The Knitters Treat Exchange is my first experience in swapping. On Monday, my spoiler was revealed to me when a package was delivered to my door. There was a sense of joy and anticipation while opening the package. It was just like Christmas. My spoiler was Sarah from the USA. She sent over a skein of Duet handpainted sock yarn, decadent chocolate, the novel Love Walked In, spring issue of Interweave Knits, my first set of handmade stitch markers, bling for my mobile (difficult to see in the photo, it's my initial). lovely lip balm and luxury soap. Thank you Sarah for an awesome package.

Thanks to the great enthusiasm and organization skills of Isobel and Sara, the Knitters Treat Exchange was a lot of fun. I enjoyed shopping and creating a package for Jodi. She received her KTE package on Friday (I am impressed with the Irish Post Office since I posted her package Monday afternoon).

The KTE has been fun and I now have two new knitty blogger friends in the blogshpere...A Caffeinated Yarn and The Plucky Knitter.

Your treats look great Diane. Mine are on their way as I had an e-mail from my anonymous treater yesterday.Looking forward to it. Must say I've enjoyed this experience and spoiling my treatee. Would do this again.
