Hurricane Swap Party 2007

Well, Dawn's Hurricane Swap Party 2007 box is packed & it's ready for mailing to the Lone Star state.
Threw in a few goodies.... hope Dawn likes everything. I had a great time doing this & can't wait for Hurrican Swap Party 2008!!!

Everything is wrapped in white tissue paper except for the sock & yarn, which is wrapped in black tissue paper. Each package has a different yarn or ribbon remnant from my "leftovers" stash.

The yarn is Trekking XXL #126, Brach's colorway. The pattern is a garter rib: K2P2 1st round; and knit 2nd round.

Birthday Yarn

This is some Trekking XXL yarn I received for my birthday in February. It is so eazy on the eyes. To date, I have given every pair of socks that I've made away! This pair WILL BE mine, especially since a DF gave me the yarn. I've had to put the sock on hold for the Hurricane Sock Swap. Can't wait to get back to them...

One of my favorites, peonies. I inherited this bush 3 years ago & this is the first time it has bloomed. I'm so thrilled....
