RSE3 Ready to Ship

I was very excited when the matches came out for Ravelry Scarf Exchange 3. I had participated in exchanges 1 and 2 plus sent an "angel" scarf for someone whose upstream didn't come through. As I was filling out the questionairre, I secretly thought, "Wouldn't it be nice to receive Hreow?" Well, when the matches were sent out ......I GOT HREOW! She had knitted me a lovely scarf in the first swap and over the past year or so, we have kept in touch with each other ..... almost carrying on our own person swap a couple of times. (photo taken by Hreow on Ravelry)
I finished her scarf mid-February, but had just blocked it the last week-end in February. This week I was to finish a couple of little things so I could send the package on its way to Scotland today. Well, the package was taped shut but without the mailing label on it when I discovered the card that was to be in the box was still on the bed in our spare bedroom. I discarded that box and packed the contents a second time. Then ..... I remembered that I hadn't taken a pic of the completed scarf yet, so opened this box to do so. Well ..... I can't think of any reason now to open the box .... everything is finally in it and pics are in my camera. She has received the package and this is the picture that she took .... it shows off the cables a lot better than any of my photos. She really liked it!

Tomorrow morning (Saturday) I'll be starting the package on its way..... I can't wait until Hreow receives it.

Happy knitting! TLGB
