Jingle Bell Swap

Finally got some good daylight to do some justice to this lovely yarn I just got from my Knittyboard Jingle Bell Swap.

It came from the states, but my pal has hinted that she isn't..hmmm...wonder who.

Jingle Ball Swap gift
Good tiny cookies, I think they taste gingery, and being so small, hehe, you can eat as much as you want! (also supposed to be a hint of where my pal comes from..but call me dense, still no clue) Lovely yarn and the most thoughtful gift is the little cards in the envelopes with little sayings for me to open up over the holidays.

Blue Sky Alpaca Silk in green

So very soft and squishy.

This would feel so good around the neck, going to have to find a cowl pattern for it I think

Did I tell you it's soft and squishy? :)
Thank you Z's Spoiler, whomever you are :)

Secret swaps are always so much fun!! And so are tiny cookies. You are right, they are so small it's like eating nothing. And a bunch of nothing is still nothing. So there you go, no calories!!!

Oooo...I knew that one! I have eaten MANY MANY of those cookies....they are from the Netherlands!
Hahah...but I think someone said that...they are dutch.
and...i would go with the line
"ginger is good for you" so that justifies eating MANY of them.
And that yarn!!!! Sweet!
