Mail All the Way from South Africa!

I love getting mail! Yesterday was a great surprise all the way from Capetown, South Africa with some really pretty postage stamps too for my stamp collection! (Crochet and stamp collecting? Old person hobbies are kinda my thing.)

I won a contest for Jam Tarts Crochet It Yourself kit for fingerless mitts. Jam Tarts is a company from fellow blogger, Jill on Nice Piece of Work. Check her out! πŸ˜€

The kit comes with a skein of yarn (I picked pale blue/green), a thread cutter, a yarn needle, pretty buttons, a crochet hook, and a pattern. I like that the yarn from South Africa. It says that the yarn is “dyed and balled by women from an economically depressed rural area of South Africa. The sale of this product has empowered them and bought economic benefits to their community.”
