Indigo swap

A few weeks back, I signed up for the Indigo Luxury Swap in the Australian Swappers group on Ravelry. I don’t usually do swaps – only because of a lack of time – but I couldn’t resist the ideas of indigo and luxury, especially as, as you’ll have gathered from my last few posts, I love blues, have always wanted to play with indigo, and when it comes to yarns, I’m all for luxury ones!

It’s been a fun time, stalking my swap partner, finding out about her likes, and thinking of things to add in to the parcel for her. I ordered the yarn just after partners were allocated, and it arrived about two weeks back – it’s beautiful, and I hope she’ll love it. participating in the swap has prompted me to try out some new things – the indigo dyeing and shibori I’ve already posted about, making little boxes, and I got the sewing machine out again today for the first time in months. Today I put the finishing touches to her package, and posted it off. I won’t put the details here until after she’s received it, but here’s a sneak peek:

    I’m another blue person, especially the rich indigo tones. Beautiful.

    Thanks for notification of Brangian pattern. I’ve downloaded it. All the best for now and hospital time.

    Me here again, LOL. Not really on topic but I wanted to tell you I’m posting my first Brangian shawl shown here, to a friend in Christchurch, NZ. She loves purples etc and like many other residents there is terrified by all the aftershocks from the earthquake. Only her chimney was damaged, but her area has at least a dozen shocks every day, some almost as big as the first major quake. So, while I really love this, I thought she could use a hug. So Brangian is on its way to her.
