Swaps Arrive!!

Thursday was GREAT mail day! I got two packages. One from my Secret Pal and another from the Coffee and Yarn swap on Swap Bot.
First the coffee and yarn swap... I got two bags. One from Africa and the other from Guatamala. I can't wait to try them out. I also got two skeins of Peace Fleece in a blue/green color combo. Totally cool.

Then the other package I received was from my Secret pal. She sent me "Socks soar on Circular needles", a set of size 1 Addis circs, two skeins of Lornas Laces in Tahoe colorway. Which soo rocks as I've been itching to learn this technique. So now I have all I need to get started. Except maybe for the extra 8 hands I need to finish all that I need to first! I also got this cool lace scarf pattern based on a cats life... so cute. I can't decide which one I like best. Also I got a super mini garden Gnome. Secret Pal, its like you have this Gnome theme going on for me.. its so cool I love it! He came with a mini Gnome information book. He's just the right size for my house plants. They need Gnomes to look after them too! THANKS SECRET PAL YOU'VE ROCKED MY WORLD AGAIN!

Your swaps look great! Have you knit with Peace Fleece before? If not, you will LOVE the resulting fabric. It can be a bit hard on the hands when knitting, but it softens and blooms so nicely after washing.

I do have some Peace Fleece.. but I just haven't gotten around to knitting with it yet. This will contrast nicely with the stuff I have.
