Lace Swap goodies!

I am a bad bad blogger/swapper. I received my lovely lace swap goodies last Saturday, and I'm just now getting around to showing you the treats!


My treats came all the way from Sweden. Aren't these stamps cool? I love that the package just has stamps on it - none of that barcode business many of our packages have.


And inside were some lovely treats. Candles, napkins, soap, and a notepad, all from Sweden, a cute address book with a black kitty (just like Cocoa) on the front, and handmade stitchmarkers (the first fancy stitchmarkers I've ever had made for me!).

But the real treats are the yarn and patterns, of course! ~1200 yards of a lovely 100% laceweight Finnish wool, and ~600 meters of the yummy reddish Swedish laceweight wool. And the topper is the book of patterns - Estonian lace charts! My swapper was kind enough to provide a translation of the chart symbols, but I think it'll take some major concentration on my part to decide what to make from this!

My swapper was the wonderful Marika! Thanks Marika! I love everything and can't wait to decide what to make!
