In December of last year, members of the New Zealand Fibre Swap Ravelry group had a secret swap which I joined in on for the first time. My swapee (the one whom I received a parcel from) was Kate and if you look at the photos of the gorgeous items she sent you will see just how spoilt I was! Thank you again, Kate!
Blendy's Yarn Sampler Box
In January I joined in with many others and bought a box in Blendy's New Zealand Yarn Sampler Box with what I felt, at the time, was a mixed success. I felt that $35.00 (plus postage for a rather oversized box for what what inside) was a little steep considering what was contained in the package.
After I got over my initial disappointment, I did a bit of maths and sort of realised that maybe the cost wasn't too bad but I still feel that it is a lot considering that it is really hard to use up very little samples in a useful way. I guess it is a way, though, to put my creative hat on - if I can find it, that is!
Both the Fibre Swap and the Sampler Box have just had, or are into, their next round but I have decided not to join up with either this time. Financial restraints, time restraints etc, etc.
Time's fast running out so this will have to be it, for now. I have a horrible feeling that no photos will appear. Not sure why but I don't have the time now to try and fix it. Will try and do that in the weekend. Till then, cheerio!
