Swap In:

Today, I slept in for a long time. It’s my first day off in ages, and it’s all about treating myself. I knit for a little bit and caught up on Jon Stewart. Then we went to a friend’s birthday party. And then I finally opened my Project: COLORSWAP box from Lynne.

I opened the box and was greeted with a wealth of orange and yellow packaging:

Digging through it all, I found treats of all sizes:

In the back left, you see an orange tote bag with green and yellow circles and big round wooden handles. Continuing clockwise, there’s a lovely orange basket with a big yellow flower, holding some Platter’s Orange Chocolate Sponge candies (yum!). There’s a length of wired floral ribbon right behind a box of yellow and orange painted eggs (decor, not edible). Some orange nail polish reminding me that I need to get the season’s first pedicure. The book “Compassionate Knitting” which contains a pattern for an adorable astral-themed baby romper. Then a pair of bright little ankle socks and a handful of old-fashioned candy sticks.

Thank you so much Lynne for all my goodies and surprises. And for organizing this whole thing.

Now I just have to decide what to do next with my day. Pedicure or knit…..
