Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate!

Wow! I have been blessed with the greatest swap partner ever!!! The theme of the February Color Swap was "brown and tan". I was gifted with some seriously brown goodies, as in "chocolate brown". Here's a peek...



My CS pal couldn't have done a more perfect job of choosing things that I love - a delicious solid chocolate heart (ask me how I know it's delicious), some adorable knitting note cards, some dark and yummy-smelling coffee, a vanilla-nutmeg candle, 3 vials of amber colored glass beads, some cute tiny biscuits for the puppies (big and small), a teeny little knitted sweater keychain (partner, did you knit this?), and best of all, the most sinfully luscious Blue Sky bulky alpaca (!!!) yarn in a deep, rich brown that is the color of dark chocolate. OMG!!! Thank you so much, Sonya. I am enjoying our emails and reading your blog and getting to know you. I hope you are equally blessed by your swap partner!


I should submit this to Cute Overload!

I just stumbled onto your blog from the Purling Puppies web ring. The foster pups are so cute--- I hope you will be able to find them "forever" homes.

The tiny sweater is courtesy of Lantern Moon. Olivia got me one from the LYS for Christmas. I am going to back get some of that yarn for myself. It is soft, I carried/fondled it all through the store. Hope it's no worse for wear.
Glad you are pleased. Happy Brown and Tan month!!

That is some pretty good/strong
smelling coffee. I hope it did not make the yarn smell like coffee.
