Batty's Box!

So exciting! My UK Swap package arrived this week, Batty has been one of the names my secret swap pal has been known as, and it's been such fun reading the comments on my blog and the regular e-mails she has been sending, and getting to know her but not knowing who she is!


This is a perfectly gorgeous box of delights, I can't believe I actually managed to get it all in one photo! So I'll just talk you through everything, and leave you to ooh and ahh at your leisure!

From bottom left we have a sheepie tape measure a ball of 4ply wool (from Wingham Wool Work), Vanilla soap from l'Occitane (almost good enough to eat), Sheep post it notes (genious!), a selection of Thorntons chocolate bars (yummy), I love this butterfly postcard, (it's a special card that if you move it one way it's a butterfly and if you move it the other way it's a caterpillar, so cool!). Then there's the fibre.... LOOK, Merino Silk Angora Cashmere, it's gorgeously soft, and as if that's not enough a bag of Pure Beige Cashmere too, I am well and truly spoilt!

Alongside this is a fabulous crochet felted pot that my special pal made just for me, and in there are some Quills, which I have never heard of before and some Clover Bamboo needles too! Last up we have another ball of 4ply from Wighams and a fantastic retro fair isle mitten pattern.

It really is the most well thought out fibery themed package you could possibly imagine so with no further ado I shall reveal the Batty Behind the Box is none other than Rosie, thankyou so very much Rosie, you've made my week!!

That is one humdinger of a parcel - lucky you! Rosie surpassed herself especially as she's had a stinker of a cold recently (as I know from skipnorth).
