The Blog Hub Swap -- Day 5

Day 5!  I opened my package this morning to find...  chocolate!!!  Really, it doesn't get any better than that.

I have a bag of Cadbury buttons, *and* a bag of Thornton's chocolate truffles, which look to be available only in the UK.  Lucky Brits.  And lucky me!  Good thing we did all that hiking yesterday.  

Also inside the pack was the prettiest little card.  As you can see...

And inside the card was a lovely note saying that Chrissy had chosen the Idlewood pattern for me because she liked it a bunch and thought it would look great on me.  How sweet is that?  I'm super excited since I already have yarn on hand for Idlewood and am looking forward to casting on.

The pattern is in my inbox even as we speak (she's fast!), and patiently waiting for me to finish eating my chocolate.  This could take a while.

Looking forward to all the fun surprises and goodies that Day 6 holds.  See you tomorrow!


  1. Lucky ducky! Those are some yummy chocolates!

  2. I'm glad you have the yarn for the pattern. I've already cast on the pattern that I received in my swap - I couldn't wait!

  3. I have loved that pattern since the first time I saw it. Good luck!!

  4. That Idlewood seems right up your street; I think you will make it in a blue colorway ... ? :-)
