Aussie swap parcel

My parcel for the Aussie swap is finally ready to go. Fetching gloves and a pair of cable gloves, a skein of happy spider sock yarn, stitch markers (which I only finished tonight so they aren't in the piccie!) all in a little drawstring project bag. I hope that my swapee is happy with her parcel...
I cast on some felted slippers tonight too - I'm sick of having cold feet on the slate floor here and was inspired by the swap socks that I received but I'm not quite brave enough to try socks yet so slippers seemed to be the way to go and it also means I can use up some green and purple yarn that I've got laying around in the stash. Quick knit too. 3 hours of knitting tonight and I'm up to the toes on the first one but now it's off to bed for me.

You know, the minute you want help starting with socks, we're all right here to help! Ask George. She had an afternoon tea to get her through her first sock and look at her now!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies. I love both pairs of mitts,and the sock yarn is gorgeous. I will surely use the pink bag for some little projects too.
