JULIET, and other pretties!

this is juliet, knit in cotton ease. this was a super quick, fun knit. i may even knit another one in a different color, and a size smaller~ this one is a little bigger than i would like. i was shopping at target earlier this afternoon and saw some little cropped cardis very similar to this one... but not nearly as cute!

and, here are some long over due swap photos of a Magic Yarn Ball i put together for my friend heidi~ it was a valentine themed swap. i painted some superwash sock yarn in a fun spring colorway and some spinning fiber in very valentine-y colors. i included a sock pattern, some organic hot cocoa and raspberry syrup, and organic chocolate bar, some lip balm,

and some handmade stitch markers. the bottom set went into heidi's yarn ball and the cocktail set was made for another friend.

here is the yarn and goodies i received in the swap. this is peace fleece in the georgia rose colorway and will be knit into a new spring hand bag for me! and that chocolate bar is endangered species dark chocolate (fair trade!!) and is the best chocolate ever!! i have bought 2 or 3 more since i finished this one off...
