Malabrigo Sweet Treat

My first swap completed! It was interesting to learn the ropes of swapping - the stalking, the creative shopping, the local treats, phew! I sent my package to Melissab, a friend from ravelry. Today I got this package from simplethings, now a new friend on ravelry. Two skeins of emerald blue malabrigo and one in bergamota. I probably would not have picked the bergamota in the store, so it is definitely a treat. I love it. I think I'm going to whip up the luxe neck warmer from Knit 2 Together (see picture above from the book). The bergamota could also make a beautiful hat, the color is very rich. Malabrigo is joy to knit.

Also included in my package was some wool wash, which I totally need a set of bamboo knitting needles and darning needles with a case. Thanks again neighbor!
