A little yarn swap . . .

What ever did we do before Ravelry? It was through Ravelry that The ADD Knitter spied three skeins of Debbie Bliss SoHo in my stash. She had two skeins in the same colorway that she kindly offered to gift to me! Wanting to reciprocate, I asked if there was anything in my stash that interested her. As it turned out, she was happy to take the left-over Soft Tweed from my Sunrise Circle Jacket off my hands.

The SoHo showed up in the mail last week.



And oh my, what is that behind it??



A gorgeous skein of sock yarn from GypsyKnits! It's rare to come across a sock yarn I don't have in my stash, but this is one (ummm, now WAS one). The colors are beautiful and I was so touched by her generosity! Thank you so much, Ms ADD!!

Wonderful yarn! Love that sock yarn. Ravelry rocks. I have a bunch of new knitting friends, local people who I get to see IRL, who are all awesome. All because of Ravelry. :-)

Love it! I'm just finally getting into Ravelry. When I first started it just seemed overwhelming. I'm addicted. Love the stuff you got, the sock yarn is just gorgeous!

I agree that Ravelry is absolutely amazing. I've made wonderful friends and even found local knitting and spinning groups that I belong to. Before, I knit alone .. now I plan my day around my evening knitting and spinning life.

How kind of her to send that yarn also. Surprises are a wonderful thing.
