A Box of Goodies From Finland!

The mailman brought a wonderful package from Finland today.  It's from my Knit Mitt Kit Swap pal Anna.

Goodies

I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but I've already broken into the chocolate!  I couldn't even wait for the photo shoot for that!  Anna made me a beautiful felted bag in a rainbow of colors.  I really like the shape and scale of this bag.  It will be perfect for small projects.  She also sent the pattern for the Anemoi Mittens. I've been drooling over all of the Anemois that I've seen lately.  I'm so excited to knit this pattern.  There is some yummy Drops alpaca in ivory and a deep loden green, some DPNs and of course the delicious Finnish treats.  Thank you Anna.  I'm thrilled with it all!

Here's a closer shot of the bag.

I've got to dash out now to pick up the kids from school.  (Why does it seem I'm always writing my posts in a rush these days?)  But I will leave you with a picture of a new sock I've made, the mate is almost done, then I'll post a pattern.  I used Socks That Rock Medium Weight in the Jingle Bell Rock colorway.

What a cool bag and goodies from Finland.I would be jealous if my KMKS partner had not been so generous to me.I got lots of goodies too!I love swapping but I have had to cut back.Can't seem to keep track of them all sometimes.Love that sock!

You have a great swap partner! I am going to do my Anemois next month I think. I think you STR sock is fabulous, looking forward to seeing the finished pair!

such great goodies! i bet the chocolate is delicious. and your socks are making my cold feet warm :-)

Wow, all the way from Finland! I love the colors of the buttonhole bag. I sent my partner one, too, but hers is solid purple.

I'm impressed you took the photo before the chocolate was all gone. I keep having problems taking photos of my gifts from my secret pal before I eat the candy.

What a GREAT kit!!!

What a great swap package! The bag is lovely. I really love your new sock too. Hmmm, I can hear my medium-weight STR calling me now!

what a great gift! the felted bag is great.

such colorful socks - they remind me a bit of the diagonal rib socks I've seen in IK a while back...very pretty!

Love the socks! (I really should think of something else/original to write but it's true - I love everything you knit!)
