Favorite Things

I recently participated in a swap on ravelry. This was my third virtual swap (see others here) and I am really happy that I did it. This one was called the Favorite Things Swap and the point was to send someone else a bunch of your favorite things.

Here's a photo of the items that my partner, from Montreal, Canada, sent to me. She included two skeins of 100% alpaca yarn, some lavender shower gel (made with local Canadian lavender), dark chocolate infused with pear, a wonderful book on healthy living, some indulgent teas and a handmade hair clip. She is also an incredible knitter and has made a pair of lined fiddlehead mittens - for a charity auction - that would make anyone envious (and hopefully made someone bid a lot)!

For those of you that know me IRL, you might know that DH and I went on our honeymoon to Montreal. Aside from Annie's package being lovely it also brought on a trip down memory lane. Dan and I took out the photo album and had a good time remembering our trip.

Hi Beth
so nice to read your blog, and seeing the picture! Thank you for the nice compliment on my mittens. It was a pure joy to knit them, and the winning bidder has enjoyed warm hands since (and we raised 150$ for the United Way!) I'm glad you had a nice time going through your honeymoon photo album. Eric and I often look at some of our photo album (not yet married, but travelled a lot), and it always bring a smile and warmth. Take care! Annie
