Swaps galore

The Wee Tiny Sock swap came at the perfect time this year — right in between the first two rounds of Sock Madness. Since I was in a sock knitting frenzy anyways, it was easy to whip up not one, but two wee tiny socks.

My mini Sock Zombies were received in Alabama today, and I got my super-cute wee tiny sock from Minnie when I got home from work. I've been reading her columns on the Lime & Violet blog for months now, and it was pretty cool to get something from her in the mail.

I also just discovered the Karma Yarn Swap board on Ravelry, and it's sucked up a wee bit of time in the last week! I've mailed off five swap packages already!

And look what I've received in return, so far... gorgeous stitch markers from Knitasaur. My plan is to have a set of stitch markers in every one of your project bags, Dotty. :-)

And of course, what's a knitblog without a little stash enhancement photo? I may have picked up some Noro Silver Thaw at the Yarn and Fiber March Madness sale. I can't decide if it's going to be Lady Eleanor or another Clapotis -- I think I'm leaning to Lady Eleanor because this will look so beautiful in entrelac.

Nice stitch markers! I was in the Karma yarn swap for awhile but it was moving too fast and I couldn't keep up. Never did get/swap anything.

Cute wee tiny sock! Still waiting for mine to arrive - any day now.
