Valentine's Day Swap

Last night at the WeHo SnB, we had a scarf/cowl swap to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

It was a bit of a race for me to finish up my swap gift, but I was pleased with how it turned out, and I thought it fit Teresa, the recipient of my gift, perfectly. I didn’t get a picture of it on her, but I did take a few of it on me before I wrapped it up and sent it on its way.

I used the Flower Scarf pattern, and learned how to do the Fisherman’s Rib, which was new to me. On one end there is a “Queen's Ball button” that hooks into the middle of the flower attached to the other end.

I love love love the scarf that I received from Beth. It is so soft and squishy, and beautifully crocheted. It is in the perfect Sarah Sparkle color. Tucked in my sparkly tissue paper was also some delicious chocolate and monogrammed S paper.

The swap was such a smashing success – it was so fun to hear so many appreciative knitters, excited to receive something hand crafted just for them, that they didn’t have to do themselves. Each gift was so different from the next, and all seemed to fit their recipient perfectly.

I totally agree with you, Sarah! It was really great to receive a customized gift from a knitter and/or crocheter that I admire!!! Maybe we should do another exchange later in the year?
