FibreShare Summer 2019 – Sent

I had so much fun participating in my first FibreShare ever!  This program is a great way to make new fiber friends, curate great packages, shop your stash, and receive surprise goodies.  I’m so glad I chose to do this in 2019 – in a year of so many “firsts” for me. And today, I’m going to tell you what I sent my partner!

Partners

The partner who I was sending to and the one I was receiving from were both in Oregon.  How crazy is that? I felt like I really got to know the ladies with whom I emailed and chatted.  And they were lovely!  

It’s always fun talking with knitters/crocheters who are as passionate about their craft as you are!  I rarely get to talk about my favorite designers – because no one knows who they are in my day-to-day life – so this was a great social outlet for any knitter!

Package Contents

For my partner, who loves pink, teal, and flamingos,  I chose the following items to include in her package:

  • A May Designs flamingo print journal 
  • Notions tin
  • Andrea Mowry’s So Faded pattern
  • Suburban Stitcher’s Sock in Night Gypsy
  • Yarn Love Scarlett O’Hara in Antique Teal
  • Nashua Handknits Grand Opera in Dusty Pink
  • Friendship bracelet

I really meant to send some snacks and/or candy but time got away from me.  I’ll definitely have to do better with that next time.

Next Time

The FibreShare leaders give you plenty of time to assemble a package.  I was just crazy busy all July and time got away from me. So I wish I’d had a bit more time to follow some creative ideas that came to me later on in the month.  

I think I may have to do this again!  It was so much fun and I love making new fiber friends!  And hopefully by the next time, life will have slowed down a bit!
