Fall Swap

Swap items that I kept
Kathyb hosted a Fall Swap, and she mailed a package of goodies to me. I could take anything out of the package as long as I replaced it with something of equal value.

I kept the items shown above, filled the envelope with two skeins of sock yarn, a pattern, some recipe cards, etc. and sent it on to Ellen in California.

This is the project I have in mind for the Noro, or it may become this project (similar, but a different rib) if I don't like to do the 1 x 1 rib for an eternity.

I purchased two additional skeins (shown on the top in this photo) on Friday and will start the scarf after I finish a couple of other projects in the works.

Thanks, Kathyb for another fun swap. I participated in Summer Swap 2011 and in Take and Replace 2011.


  1. I love Noro! I've always liked the look of the Noro striped scarf, but have had my doubts I'd enjoy that much 1x1 ribbing.

  2. Nancy Both scarves are wonderful looking. I've always liked the Mistake Rib pattern on Ravelry.
    Im thrilled you loved the package. Ellen does have a blog at
    So sorry if I didnt make that clear earlier! happy monday

    1. Thanks, I edited the post to include the link to Ellen's blog.

  3. I checked out the pattern, and it looks like a very good one for this Noro yarn. I'm looking forward to seeing it go on the needles!

  4. I love Noro too! I'm looking forward to watching this project progress - and to getting my swap package in the next day or two!

  5. I've made the Noro Striped scarf and it is my favorite scarf to wear. I always get comments on it. Fun swap!!

  6. Wow, what a haul!! Bravo for you!!


  7. I like that first scarf pattern you picked out. It's been on my "someday" list for a long time. I really like the color changes in that yarn.

  8. I evidently need to spend some time at Ravelry one of these days...the scarves look fabulous. I guess I get so involved with my quilting I don't get all that much knitting done. I look forward to seeing the scarf you make with that yarn.


I love comments!
