in exchange

I finished the reticule and sent it on it's way.

now I will show you the really neat items that I received in exchange.

First, these threads were in the package.  very pretty colors.

 Then, because we had agreed to an exchange of warm, yummy hand knit socks for the tatted reticule,  I was expecting 1 pair of socks, but instead look what I got.......
a pair of 100% wool "practical" pair done is Eyelet Spiral 

and  a second fancy pair done in Cashmere.  yes there are beads around the top and ruffles. 

thank you Marybeth,  they will be worn with pride and thanks for keeping my feet warm.

if you are interested in the socks that Marybeth knits, as well as the other items she produces, both for sale and for her charity "Nimble Fingers on the Prairie" where she helps keep low income kids warm with hats, mittens, scarves, socks and other wearables  please visit her blog Socks


  1. Wow, that was quite a swap! Enjoy your new threads AND the cozy, lacy socks.

  2. Lot of fun!

    Love your new look. It is elegant Fox : )
