I'm so excited. Yesterday this parcel arrived for me from my swap partner in Norway (thanks Spinnvill!) With all the snow and floods we've had recently, I only just mailed my own package at the beginning of the week. It was a real treat to end the week receiving one myself.
The chocolates are my favourite Norwegian ones, which I haven't had since I left the country. I always used to buy a box of the coffee flavoured Mokka Bønner at Christmas. The Melkerull were popular with the children. If they're really good I might share them with them, but in the meantime they're sitting temptingly in the fridge!
The yarn is Gjestal Bris a blend of 50% wool and 50% soy. I've never used soy before but have been very intrigued by it whenever I've been in my local LYS. I was actually looking at a baby blend last summer which contained a lot of soy and wondering whether to add it to my stash. Somehow, I managed to deny myself, but the memory of it lingers temptingly!
Funnily enough, I'd just come across a great scarf pattern on Thursday, so I think that's what this yarn will become. Who knows, it could be my next "Purse Project"!
