Ravelry yarn swap box

Last year I joined up to a yarn swap group on Ravelry. It’s great fun, I’ve taken part in four now – three of which are current, plus Christmas bingo where I won a gorgeous skein from Fleece Maiden.

Yesterday I received my box first 2012 European box and I chose a beautiful skein of Colinette Jitterbug & some flower buttons that match the yarn really well. I’m waiting for two boxes, due any day now – one from the US & one from Germany. Sometimes there is a theme, like adding yarn with the same initial as your Ravelry name, people add things relevant to knitting like buttons, stitch markers, mini purses, and also little sweet treats or tea and coffee samples. It’s a really lovely thing to do and always interesting to see what everybody chooses from the box as it travels around Europe or the world. I’m really looking forward to receiving my next two boxes.
