This post is not about the back of my cardigan though, nor is it about my new sock-love. No. This post is about my most recent swapping on the Phoenix Knitting Forums. A little while ago I signed up for the “September Surprise Swap” on the forum. The idea was that you were given the name of a person to send a parcel to but you couldn’t contact them or ask about them, it had to be a surprise which meant a bit of “stalking” to find out what that person liked and making the parcel accordingly.
I checked out my swap partner’s blog and her Ravelry page and found her to be a fan of “girly” colours including pink and lilac and so I set about knitting her a cosy, cabled, pink neckwarmer.
Shadow Blue (well pink!) in King Cole Merino Blend Aran in Rose
As well as the neckwarmer I included some other bits and pieces I hoped she’d like after my “research” and was pleased to hear that she was very happy with her parcel.
In turn I received a lovely parcel (I still haven’t worked out who from as I’m useless at riddles and they haven’t made themselves known on the forum yet!) but I can show you what I got.
Well, I hope everyone has a marvelous week and I hope to be back on Wednesday to show off my cardigan back and my sock-in-progress.
