This year my sister and I did another yarn swap. What is fun is that each of us thinks we got the "better" present! She is quite a gifted at sewing and knitting. I am a knitter. I have the capability to sew basic projects but not the burning desire for perfection this means that my sewing would probably be sloppy. She made the sewn zipper pouch!! I just love these, I have a smaller one and they are perfect for little stitch markers or clip-on markers for knitting. I really love my treasure chest! I have filled it with beads and buttons and it is already on display in the family room.
My sister also made the stitch markers! (her talents are endless....) Almost all of my stitch markers have been crafted by her. If you think the yarn is another skein of Madelinetosh lace, you are correct! I really like the color, denim, a lot :) So when May rolls around again next year, I believe that we will swap again because it is FUN.
This is the post completes my trip last weekend to Pittsburgh, I saved the best for last-of course! I forgot to snap some photos at the Holy Communion party on Sunday, I was talking and eating to much (I do both of those equally well).
