Spring is here! :)

I think the spring has arrived here in Iceland. At least in my part of town ;)

I KNOW my birthday isn’t until the 28th (and that day I have a really big test… great timing!) BUT I opened one present today! I joined a Birthday Swap on Ravelry and was paired up with a girl that lives in Italy ans has the same birthda. Today I got my present and just needed to get a little brake from things so I opened it and BOY did it make my day!

Look at all the goodies I got:

In the package was:

Benissimo – a magazine I don’t understand a word in but that doesn’t matter, I understand knitting ;)
2 skeins of Needful Yarns, wool.
1 skein oh-so-beautiful handpainted wool from Fyberspates  (oh my the colors! :) )
1 skein kettle dyed Malabrigo yarn (oh boy do I look forward to knit with this yarn!)
6 handmade stitch markers
soak fiber washing “soap”
2 plates of chocolate mmm…
pink pen
lip balm
Weleda cream (I’m guessing sun cream :D)
A birthday card

Thank you Azzuka! :)

Treasure swap!

I joined a Treasure Swap on Ravelry and my first time participating was in September. For those who are not familiar with swaps:  It’s a group of people that sign up for a swap. The group is divided to pairs and each person needs to find things to send to their partner. In the swap I joined there is a list of things you are supposed to send to your partner, for example: yarn, knitted goods, hot drink, pattern and so on.

So… I spent September picking things for my partner, looking out for colors I knew she likes and trying to find something that I would love to recieve.  In the end of September I sent the package off and today I recieved mine!

AND HOLY YARN!!! It’s was packed with goods!

(sorry about the darkness of the photo… I was just in a hurry
to take a photo before the cat eats the chocolate… ehm…)
