Winter scarf swap
Finally, my swap package arrived at Donna's (aka sewnsew from Crochetville) door step. The theme of the swap was to make a winter scarf. I chose this great pattern from Crochet Me (More about the latest on the Crochet Me site). When I think of winter, I automatically think of a warm cuppa coffee or some tea. So, I included a nice mug and some flavored coffee and an assortment of tea. I also included some candies goodies for her girls, some cotton yarn from Knit Picks and a Quilter's tote that would of course be great for toting around WIP. Donna really liked all the stuff....and I am thrilled. I think the best part of any swap is when your partner gets the gift. I think it is even better than getting my part of the swap. Although, I am excited to get mine!!!
The online magazine Crochet Me has totally revamped their website and it looks great. It is more of an interactive site with forums and more of a community feel. Mosey on over and check it out. If you are ever in search of a some really awesome patterns, check out their pattern page. It is so much easier to search it now that the site is in a new beta mode. Jeez, between Crochetville, Ravelry and now Crochet Me, when will I ever find time to crochet????? ;)
