Swapperly Goodness

September 10, 2007

I went on vacation that’s what I did.. and it was to the Pacific Northwest! My Virtual Vacation Swap pal Dorothy gave me a very very cool swap package…

The tour letter led me through our adventure in the Pacific Northwest… 🙂

Those chips…. SOOO yum! 🙂 Cascade brand (for the Cascade mountains, and also the namesake for the yarn!)

Dorothy included some unique and cool things like the quality tuna from her farmers market (we LOVE tuna here at casa Malach), yummy jam, and Cascade yarn because it’s named after the Cascade Mountains in Washington (not because it’s from there though…because even though the sheep are in peru, the yarn is produced locally) She included some of the giveaways from the Stitch and Pitch that she attended… a very cool needle holder (which is already filled with new occupants) and HUGEMONGOUS pair of bamboo needles, and a cool Lion bag that’s a great stash holder! She included some cool ‘cycling’ soap, that will certainly work for this sweat monger runner girl! A second package arrived with a beautiful puzzle… and I haven’t even blogged that I like puzzles! The favorite item though has to be the hand dyed yarn! It’s colors are fabulous, and I plan to order more from her Etsy Store! 🙂

Yay Dorothy! You ROCK!

    Glad it came all in one piece and that you like it.

    Cascade Yarns is local, just not the sheep, which I think are in Peru 🙂
