magic yarn ball

I received this exciting little package in the mail. Back in November, Theresa from T does wool decided to have a giving swap. She paired us up with partners and we traded our yarn balls. Little bits of pleasure wrapped hidden inside a beautiful ball of yarn.

I just received mine from Stacey over at Pea Knits. It was a fun package to open after all the anticipation.
I received a wonderful skein of yarn from The Plucky Knitter. I have been eyeing up her stuff for a while. But each time I look in her store, the shelves are always bare.
I also received Thermis (a pattern) for a great neck cowl,
some chocolate (eaten! didn't last past the photos been taken),
ribbons and a yarn wash.
I haven't even started to knit with it and am thinking I have been terribly spoiled.
I will refrain from peeking inside the ball, until I actually start knitting my cowl.
Thank you so much Stacey and Theresa! This was great fun and I am so pleased with my package.

what a fun package!

The Plucky Knitter yarn is the best...you have to get on her email list and snatch them up right when her updates go live. It's best that I ignore those emails, though :)

Ooooh! Lucky you. I have so been enjoying everyone's posts on their magic balls. That was such a perfect idea. I just could not participate - so busy at work right now to put anything together, but I sure love reading everyone's posts about it.

I am loving these yarn balls all over the place! I absolutely know that I wouldn't resist a peep inside the ball though!
