Day two of the Blog Hub swap. I apologize for the quality of the pictures today, but I got no sleep last night because of course I had to go see Star Wars: Episode 1 in 3D at midnight. Had too. There was no choice for this fangirl. And now I am exhausted and running way late. But back to the point . . .
How could it possibly get any better than the delicious candy bar from yesterday?
Purple sock yarn, that's how! One of the package requirements for each swapee was a skein of yarn. I mentioned in my questionnaire that I don't have a really big stash like a lot of those involved in our online community and also that I would really like to receive local items. The knitting world is a very big place and it is impossible to visit every location. In response, Manni the Magnificent sent me a skein of Saucon Sock by Kraemer Yarns. According to the enclosed note, Kraemer Yarns is located in Nazareth, PA, and is a very well known yarn shop. I'm really excited to give this yarn a go. I've never used a cotton acrylic blend for socks before, but from what I read this makes a very good summer sock. And I happen to have used a gift card to order Socktopus earlier this week. A perfect new pair of socks for work? I think so!
I'm leaving this afternoon for my parent's house to deal with some wedding stuff, run a 5K, and pick up the last local items for the swap package I am sending. I'll take packages 3-5 with me so I'll stay on track. Hopefully if there are any more edible goodies I can hide them from the family so that I can keep them all to myself. I'm such a greedy thing.
