random act

Some more catch up pics...

I recently participated in a Woolaholics Random Act of Kindness swap.  My recipient was Kim and you can see a pic of the package I sent her above.  

The packaging itself is a little project bag for keeping knitting projects in.  The red fabric I used or the lining has knitting phrases on it; I teamed it with the Japanese snow umbrellas (both Michael Miller prints) as Kim's favourite colours include blue and green. I whipped up a needle roll for holding sock double pointed needles (dpns) as Kim has been getting into a bit of sock knitting.  I tucked in the needle roll a set of bamboo dpns.
Also included 130grams of peartree 4 ply merino; a very lush soft local yarn; and a pattern for a little baby jacket. Kim is due to have a bub in 10 or so weeks and as I don't know whether she's having a boy or girl I thought the green was a great colour.

some little tags to attach to her knitted garmentand one of these cards. How cool are they! Perfect for sending to a knitter; they have a pattern on them...
what a fun swap to put together :D
