Favorite Things Swap & A (Sort Of) FO

I was in the Favorite Things Swap Round 2 swap on Ravelry. You send at least three of your favorite things (and one has to be yarn) to your pal. I love Rube's favorite items!

-One Skein Robyn's Nest March 2008 Sock Club Yarn (Lucky Clover colorway) - Such pretty colors and perfect for St. Patty's Day coming up soon! Can't wait to get started on socks with this yarn.
-Jo Sharp Lumina yarn - I love the sequins!
-Rock Star Scarf pattern for the Lumina - I'll have to make this! Looks like it will be good for this yarn.
-A tiny sheep piggy bank with a Canadian coin inside - So cute!!!
-A Robyn's Nest tape measure - Can never have too many! I need one for each bag!
-Chocolate - 2 milk chocolate, 1 dark chocolate... all gone now!
-A wooden needle holder made by her brother - So nice craftsmanship! This is so useful!
-4 sheep buttons in a satin bag - SO CUTE! I love the black sheep... really completes the set!

I finally finished the bodice I was test knitting. This is a picture of it right off the needles, unblocked. It came out nice and I recommend the pattern (it will be out in May, in Altered Couture magazine). I'll get to the skirt part later in the month.

What a nice haul you got there. The yarn looks yummy and I do like the color. Can't wait to see the finished scarf.
