My Knit Mitt Kit Swap parcel arrived yesterday and I am so pleased with it I can't stop smiling! A big Thank-You to Molly for such a generous swap pal!

The kit included a lovely black and white bag with a fluffly fleece lining, a pattern for some convertible mittens (perfect for me as I travel on public transport and it is annoying having to keep removing gloves/mittens to get tickets/change), 4.25mm bamboo dpns (I didn't already have this size), some supersoft Interlacements Toasty Toes yarn (It is so so soft and in perfect colours for me pinks, reds and purples) and some Eucalan Lavender Wool Wash - which I have wanted to try for a while now but is difficult to find in UK. Also in the parcel was 2 balls of sugar n cream (orange and pale blue), 2 packets of Jelly Bellys, 2 chocolate bars, some pistachio crunch and handmade soap all in an orange hessian bag. How fab. How lucky am I?

It's a happy thing to see the mitten kit living halfway across the world and It's gratifying to hear you're enjoying it!

It was so much fun to read your blog and then go shopping for things I hoped you would love.

Thanks for your generous post!

Hi Lyndsey-Jane!
I just got my kmks kit in the mail and woweeeeeeee! I'm very excited! I love love love the the felted basket, and I've never tried Cherrytreehill yarn before.
I really annoyed my husband as I was opening the package - he was trying to watch hockey, and I kept shoving things in his face. hahaha.
I'm going to try to get a picture and a post up on my blog tomorrow.
Thank you! So very much!
