Lace Swap Goodies

I shall now call August my favorite month--the wonderful thoughtfulness of new friends keeps rolling in! I received a package from the Netherlands, and I thought, "Hey, I haven't ordered from Astrid (MUST have her new Opal Hundertwasser), what's this?" It was a lovely package from the generous and wonderful ZhiWen. Three lace patterns, beautiful green Opal, Artisan NZ Merino Laceweight in Ocean color. Everything in the package was color-coordinated. Dutch candies--triple yummy goodness, fresh loose tea (must find my tea strainer), cute soap that smells good, a sweet handmade card and stitchmarkers that she made. Does this girl's talent know no bounds? I was so excited to see the Artisan NZ yarn. I just found it for the first time when I went to Massachusetts and bought myself a skein. I love it. I'm looking forward to finishing my current projects and starting something for me. Do you find you end up knitting for everyone else? Lately I have. And I'm glad to, but I'm looking forward to this special treat. I love everything, ZhiWen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better! And you have a standing invitation to Chicago!
