We only have one package that has gone missing so if anyone wants to volunteer to send a little something that would be great, I have some stuff set aside for instances like this so no one will go ungifted.
I'll contact you guys when next years swap rolls around!

This is my second year participating in the Boo-ty Swap and first I want to thank Firefly for organizing such a fun time.
That being said....my next huge thanks goes out to Robyn. Her package for me arrived today and I feel very spoiled and blessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the goodies.
As you can see she really outdid herself. Included in this package was candy corn socks, cookie cutters, an "I love yarn" pin, a breast cancer toe ring, a needle holder, 2 sets of bamboo DPNS, skull stitch markers, a large supply of various tea types and candy and finally a Sock kit from Robyn's own online yarn shop. The kit included both pattern and yummy yarn. I have already handed Robyn's card over to my hubby saying this would be a good place to make Christmas purchases. ;-) LOL
Once again thank so much for everything Robyn.

Ok on to the package...
Inside was a cut bat card, a beautiful skein of Trekking XXL in colorway 81 (very Halloween-y), the cutest little felted pumpkin which is now sitting all purty on my desk. There is also a little skull snow globe that rains bats (very cool!), three small packages of Soak in A Sent for Celebration, Flora, and Citrus, a chocolate marshmallow ghost (it was yummy), a package of assorted Halloween mellowcremes, and a package of Peeps (cocoa cats! I had no idea there were such a thing a cocoa peeps!) All packaged in a cool bag.
Thank you so much, Nathania!

I got my package in the mail yesterday and it's so great! GI gave me a very delightful package including a bag she knit and loved (isn't it lovely when people give you things that they love? It means so much as a recipient) and fish stitch markers...very amusing to a kid who likes to go fishing with her dad! There were also a couple of skeins of KnitPicks Gossamer yarn in the Caribbean colourway that I'm contemplating patterns for as I type this, a chocolate bar that is long gone (but not forgotten), a humerous little CD, and vanilla/caramel candles that made this by far and away the best smelling package ever (one of my friends warned me not to put them near my bed because they may be missing by the time I wake up and there would be a waxy taste in my mouth...). Thanks so much, GI, it's all very awesome!
By the way, "Wicked Cool" is actually in my own personal lexicon. Just sayin'.

Canadian Kit-Kats (yes, there is a difference between American and Canadian Kit-Kats and I would sell blood for these things!) Reese's cups, cochineal dyed alpaca yarn (which smells so gooooood), a colour drip candle, orange hot chocolate AND.....
THIS GUY! I love Worm from Labyrinth!!! I spent all day rattling to my coworkers about getting a handmade Worm from Labyrinth and everyone is hyped up to see him tomorrow. Look at his little handknitted scarf! I love him!
It's official, I have the best Boo-ty Pal in the world! Thank you! You have now been written into my Christmas card list. :)
I received: a small notebook, pumpkin pen that lights up when you write, 2 skeins Bernat bamboo, cookie cutters, cookie recipe, fall napkins, #10 circular needles, Lavender bath/body oils, a yummy dark Laura Secord chocolate bar ( I actually drove past the Laura Secord homestead 2 weeks ago), "diet" chocolate sticks(not really diet but only 60 calories/stick), a make a bat kit, a festive scarf, and on the card is a pin with a demonic looking sock monkey who's eye's flash red!
Thank you so much Jamie, I can't wait to see what everyone else gets!

If you are mailing your package within the US I would recommend getting delivery confirmation ($0.50) so that if anything goes wrong there is a record of the package being sent and if/when it was received.
Happy Swapping and I look forward to seeing what everyone gets!

It's a Halloween - themed secret swap. The rules are thus, sign ups begin now and end September 15. The match ups will be sent out the following week. It's kind of like a Secret Pal, but with more specifications.
Boo-ty will be shipped to your Boo-ty Pal by October 15.
It needs to include:
1. Something made.
2. Something stash-y.
3. Something to eat.
4. Something bought specifically with your person in mind.
5. And of course, something Halloween-y
There don't need to be 5 things in the box, you can mix it up if you want. Make some pumpkin cookies and tick three items off your list. But if you want to put 5 things in the that's fine, too. "They're more guidelines, than rules." Open to anyone, you don't have to be knitter to join! Also remember, this is The Swap of Small Treasures-you want to give things that you treasure and that they will treasure. It's about a connection... you know, with your Boo-ty Pal. :)
So, if you would like to join The Boo-ty Swap send me an EMAIL with your name, email, blog address, and snail mail address.
Trick or Treat!
