On Friday I sent off my package for the hometown swap in the ‘Knewbie Knit Kit’ swap group on Ravelry.

Today my parcel arrived – from Idaho!

The smell was intoxicating and I soon found out what it was – Huckleberry! The parcel was an explosion of purple with gorgeous yarns, huckleberry sweets, coffee and tea, huckleberry soap and pictures and magnets from Idaho. Thank you so much for a little slice of your hometown Kikipotamus.
