My partner recently received her package. I was really happy with the way it turned out especially since all the yarn was from my stash. I couldn't buy anything for the swap because it was a way to use up some of the craft stash that most craftsters have stored up.
I like knitting up shawls/scarves. Although it takes the longest, it's usually quickest because the pattern can be easily memorized. I really liked how this turned out. It's a lot softer than the crocheted scarf I made for another swap a while back. It's too bad it's hot here in Tucson, I would love to use scarves and wraps.
