You can never spoil your camper too much!

So here I am in camp (for real!) battling the mosquitoes so I can knit in peace and wondering what will happen tomorrow when I finish the socks and run out of yarn and wouldn't you know it if I should be so lucky as to recive a care package from Dixie (AKA timiat on Ravelry and flickr.) Dixie studied my stash and queue and got me the most fantastic stuff! A gorgeous skein of sKNITches Syncopation yarn in Red Baron, and a soft as a cloud lace yarn, Fa Re Baruffa Cashwool Decatito for the Hanami stole in my queue. All my fav colors. Reds and grays and browns. And some yummy snacks and a good tea. (you KNOW that regular camp tea is like dirty water...). It is so great to do a Ravelry swap cause you can "see" into your pal's stash and queue and from the groups, you can have an idea what they might like! So, if you have not signed up yet- go and do it now!
THANKS Dixie!!! I love it all and I am off to cuddle up with the yarn and drink a cup of the lovely Assam tea (just perfect for a coolish rainy afternoon) while I finish reading my book! I am one spoiled camper- and I LOVE IT!
