KSKS has Arrived!

At the beginning of the summer, I signed up to participate in the Knit Sock Kit Swap . This was the first time I had joined up on one of these on-line swaps. I've got to say, it was as much fun creating my own kit to send out as it was anticipating what was going to show up in my own mailbox.

I know others have said that they have the best swap pal ever, but they are wrong. I do. My swap pal, Brooke, sent me the best package. It starts with this absolutely terrific felted bag. She even made it with an outside pocket. She included a notions box with some stitch markers, a row counter, needles and a stitch holder. Also in the package were 2 balls of yarn, one KnitPicks Essential in a denimy blue and one of Supersock Summer, a pattern for Elfine's socks (which look very interesting indeed) and some roving to spin. It's polypay wool which feels nice and springy (just what I like for socks). Brooke topped off this treat-filled package with some truffles and sour candies.

Gorgeous bag - I love those colours! I have seen several swap kits with Elfine's Socks in them and have the pattern myself. Maybe they'll be the next "Jaywalkers" and every knit blogger will need to knit a pair.
