Hello, My name is Bethany and I'm a Yarn Addict. I've struggled with/enjoyed my addiction for 20 + years. I'm on about the 12th step of my pattern and I have no intention of kicking the habit. I have a large stash (of yarn) and I've been known to share (knitting) needles. My Fiber of choice is lace. Yes, I am a yarn addict, and this is my story...

It's Swap Time Again! July's "Alice" Swap!

I'm a little late in posting this, but I thought I'd show off the items I sent off in my July Alice in Wonderland themed swap, without worrying that I'd spoil it for the recipient!

This Month's theme was "Alice" herself, and here are the photos of the package I mailed:

The gloves were Churchmouse  Designs Welted Fingerless Gloves, knit in a light "Alice" blue dk weight yarn with size 5 and 6 DPNs.  I altered the pattern just a bit to suit the fact that the original pattern had 5 welts for buttons, and as I was using card suit buttons (clever, no???LOL) I only had 4....so, 4 welts it was!

The second picture shows a bag I made with an Alice color work motif, containing size 2 DPNs and stitch markers, since my swap partner had said on her profile page she was interested in making socks.  There was also a few Alice notepads, pens, lip gloss, stickers and post-it notes.

The theme for next month is "The Deck Of Cards", and I've already got it started!  Pics to come!
