The Discworld "I'm just sending this box so my partner can have cardboard for their boots and I was guilted into putting stuff in it" Swap

In February I took part in The Discworld "I'm just sending this box so my partner can have cardboard for their boots and I was guilted into putting stuff in it" Swap on Ravelry. I was lucky that I managed to get most of my crafting done before Barney got sick, and also that mum and dad were flying to Hawaii so could post the parcel from there, letting it arrive nice and quickly.

Anyway, I was completely spoiled with the package I got from Miri

The enormous pile of goodies. There is a load of old craft books (the oldest is 99 years old) all from the Librarian, a turtle needle felting kit, some soap and soak samples, a gorgeous book made from recycled paper at the San Miguel Mission in Mexico, some wonderful socks, an awesome project bag made by one of Miri's friends, some wonderful wool (including a skein of Malabrigo, some yummy chocolates, very cute buttons, a lovely turtle necklace and a gorgeous knitted lace cuff (with beading). Here's some more detailed shots.

The wonderful socks, which fit perfectly and are now my favourite socks in the whole wide world.

The beautiful cuff. I wish I could have got a better photo of this, but it is just divine.

The lovely yarn. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Edit: Yes, I know the pictures are being silly but I'm lazy and I can't be bothered fixing them at the moment.
