This post is long overdue, and I apologize to my partner. How awful for her to have to spent so much time crafting and not to have me post the photos in a timely manner. I did get them up on Ravelry right away, so I can at least plead that in my defense.
The theme of this round-robin swap was based on the Lewis Carroll poem "Jabberwocky." You know? That's kind of a toughie, but my partner came through.
First, look at all the prezzies! For me! Each one was labeled with a passage from “Jabberwocky.”
Giant. Alice. Dork.
I started with “Twas brillig,” which contained the Dover edition of Jabberwocky. I have two shelves of Alice books, but didn’t own this edition.
Look at this gorgeous scarf. Everything about it is jabberwockish, from the color, to the coppery beads, to the scaly lace motif, to the texture. Plus? She designed it.
Next up came the “vorpal sword.” You may notice that I got excited and accidentally started to rip open the package before photographing it. I couldn’t help myself.
