Mardi Gras Swap

I have been participating in a Mardi Gras swap. This week my package arrived. I am blown away by Raveler Criquette’s generosity and creativity!

She sent giant paper clips, which I always want to buy but can never justify buying for myself, stitch holders, hand made stitch markers, a mix CD of MG music, beads, coins, self-striping yarn she dyed herself, a bejeweled tin and tape measure (LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE) and a cowl made from Malabrigo yarn that is so squishy and so wonderful that I pulled it on right away and have worn it every time I have gone outside.

My creation

I sent Criquette knitted and crocheted ornaments for her Mardi Gras tree, 2 wash cloths made from patterns in her Ravelry favorites, 1 necklace and 3 bracelets made by a friend of Deborah (who was also the Swap Mistress) and a skein of my 5/2 Cotton Warp.
