As promised, here is a photo of my Valentine’s swap from the Knit Love Club (my sock club!). It’s quite cool – we’ve got alot of members this year who are all keen on getting to know each other and participating in swaps – with quite a few awesome individuals who have volunteered to organise them (allocating swap partners, making sure every participant receives their swap parcel). So this is the second swap and this is what I got from Ashley: a handy dandy foldup nylon bag, a nicsknots project bag, a handknit heart embroidered with my name (awesome!), jelly belly beans, tissues, strawberry cream chocolates and cranberry chilli chocolates. Muchas gracias!
Thanks J for the tip on the pastry – am going to try that! Am also going to try using sour cream and cream cheese in the pastry instead of water – apparently will help keep the gluten at bay. Will post progress reports.
