My package for the Knitters Tea Swap 4 arrived this past weekend. Well, actually it arrived on Friday, but since no one was home to receive it, our mail carrier left one of those pink slips you take to the post office to retrieve your packages. I will admit to being intrigued, as in the little box where it says "Sender," he had written "Canada" - I was quite overwhelmed to think that the entire nation had put together a swap package for me ...
In reality, of course, my package was from Dave, and it was a good one!
(I must apologize in advance for the poor quality of my photos - I got tired of fighting with the camera and the lighting, and took the best available for posting.)
So, without further ado, I shall unveil the contents of the box:
First, 4 (c0unt 'em, 4!) different teas! There's Maple, Iced Wine (wine??), Winter Holiday, and Morning something (the actual name has totally escaped me at the moment). The item on the right in the photo is a gadget that you place onto the spout of the teapot, to keep it from dripping after you pour the tea. (I have never seen this before. Who knew??)
Then, three kinds of treats, all involving large amounts of chocolate. This is never a bad thing ...
Next up, two kinds of yarn! One is Regia, "Canadian Colors," which will likely become a pair of socks for me. Then two skeins of Apple Laine yarn, color name "Yoda," which cracked me up. It's actually more of a light green than my crummy photo, which makes it look blue.
Dave also sent me three post cards from Ottawa, where he lives, but I forgot to photograph them. I have taken them to work to put on the bulletin board at my desk, so I have something pleasant to look at while I'm working.
When I found out that Dave was my swap partner, I was really intrigued, since he is somewhat famous. But he was an excellent correspondent, and really hit the nail(s) on the head, choosing what to send me.
Thanks Dave! And thanks to Suzie, for once again, organizing a great swap!
Last but not least, thank you to Canada for making sure the package was "sent" ...
