I'm very excited to announce that I will be hosting the first "Aroha Knits Yarn Swap" on my Ravelry forum this month! While this is not an original event (many other Ravelry groups have their own yarn swaps, some with themes and stipulations!), the inspiration for me to host one came after I received a most wonderful care package from Ravelry user disou. She treated me to two skeins of Ice Yarn's angora wool, as well as two skeins of "imitation wool" from another yarn brand.
She also included a small bag of lavender (which was very much needed for the house!) and a small assortment of teas! I still have yet to drink them, as I am waiting for that special moment that calls for partaking in such a gift from a new friend.
So, about the yarn swap! Well, we are keeping it stress-free, easy and most importantly fun! I've already got a few participants in the thread sharing what they have in their stash and hopefully soon, some unwanted yarns will be finding a new home soon where they will be put to good use!
