Super Swap

Cherry Tree Hill yarn
Regular readers of this blog know that I love to knit socks - nothing fancy, just plain Jane socks and that I occasionally offer to knit socks for one or two readers a year.

Judy (Cranberry Morning) left the comment, shown above, on the Blackjack Socks post, and I offered to knit her a pair of socks. She told me her shoe size and that her favorite color was Kelly Green.

As luck would have it, I had a hank of Kelly Green yarn (called Pesto) in my sock yarn stash and began knitting.

I also had a pair of short-cuffed socks already knit from some scrap merino, so I included those in Judy's package as an additional surprise.

Judy's post about her green socks can be seen here.

When I told Judy, I would love to knit her a pair of socks, she generously offered to send me five bars of her remarkable soap in return. Since Judy has such a wonderful variety of soaps, I asked her to chose for me. I was not disappointed in her choices, shown below:

Lady Mary, French Lilac/Lavender, Lemon Verbena, Pumpkin Spice, Southern Magnolia

Judy's handcrafted, vegan luxury soaps are wonderfully named, scented, and wrapped. I shared three bars with some knitting buddies, but kept the Lemon Verbena and French Lilac/Lavender for myself.

You, too, can experience Judy's soaps by visiting one/both of the following sites:


  1. I can see that both of you must have been very happy with that swap!

  2. Excellent swap! Creative naming for the yarn colors and for the soaps.

  3. Beautiful socks! The soaps looks interesting too. I checked to see if she made Jewelweed Soap as we order that once a year in large quanities but no luck. :)

  4. Great deal for you both. It's hard to beat hand knit socks and soaps!!

  5. Judy (and you) are some very lucky ladies! The socks are gorgeous.

  6. Beautiful yarns and socks--nothing wrong with plain Jane socks--they keep your feet warm

  7. Love plain socks too. They are busy enough for me with gussets heel turns and toes! Love the shorty socks!
