Blog Hub Swap - Day 1

I know I don't ever post twice in one day, but after posting my WIP Wednesday post, I had something else to share...

A little while ago I joined the Blog Hub swap 2012 (the Blog Hub is a fab group on Ravelry for bloggers). This morning I had to pop to the post office to pick something up, and lo and behold, it was my swap parcel *grins*

I opened up the package to find a postcard telling me who my presents were from, Tink of Master of a Thousand Things *grins a lot* I was really excited by this, I've mentioned before that Tink is my evil twin/alter ego, so I'm very impatient to find out what she picked out for me.

The theme of the swap is that you send 7 individually wrapped presents, which get opened one per day and generate a week's worth of blog posts. According to my postcard, I am to open the packages in a specific order.

So, today I opened package one...

Three funky dishcloths *grins* The message inside the present said that Tink knows I hate knitting with 100% cotton, and she'd noticed me mention to someone on twitter that I had no handknit dischcloths of my own, so she decided to make me some. Very clever stalking ;)

Even better, the colours are awesome - a purple one (her favourite colour), a fabulous green crocheted basketweave one, and an orange one (my favourite colour). And the orange one even has an "N" on it *smiles*

Excellent day one Tink, thanks! I can't wait to see what I get tomorrow :)
