Every time I do one of these, I think I have the best upstream ever. (All of them have been fabulous!) Summer Trails has been amazing.A very full box!
We're supposed to be tourists for our downstream pals. You can probably guess the themes that I sent. (Wine, onions, and outdoor activities--all of which you can walk to from our house.)
My spoiler is from Iowa. She sent me things that are representative of her community. She definitely put a lot of thought into this.
She knit me fingerless mitts in a yarn made locally. They have a cable up the sides. I don't know if she designed the pattern or not, but they fit me, and I'll wear them a lot this winter when I'm working. (Why does typing make my fingers cold?)
Then there are the stitch markers. The blue ones are to represent Delft pottery and the others are tulips, which are representative of her town.And then there's this yarn, which matches one of the colors in my new dress. Maybe there's enough for a shrug! (It's Therapi in a coral color.)
And a gluten free cookie, which I'm saving for after the birthday cake is finished. Yum. A cookie I didn't have to make.
