more swap goodness!

I received my swap from the International Knitter/Crocheter Yarns-n-Stuff Exchange last Friday. Barb was my upstream and she sent me a box full of goodies! I got 4 balls of Sugar n Cream yarn in various colors along with a knitting book on making dishcloths. Plus some gummy worms, chocolate covered raisins and peanuts. I had some major hunger last night and ate the food stuffs already ;) so no pictures of those!

Next we have my bag from ITEIV, which is finally off my needles and sewn up! Right now I am working on the strap and sewing on the hardware. I am so happy with how pretty this bag is and I know my downstream partner is going to just love it!!

I am using silver loops for the strap and an antique copper buckle/ hook to close the purse. There isn't much of an overlap on the purse flap, but that's what the pattern called for. I guess we'll just see how it turns out when I'm done.


  1. Very nice Becca. I'm sure your pal is going to love it too.

  2. Hey Becca! I can't find your email anywhere- but wanted to let you know I got my yarn swap box yesterday! thank you so much- the turtle stuff was all awesome! :)

  3. I love knitting with cotton - dishcloths are awesome :)
