Swap With A Friend

Awhile ago, my blogger friend Amy did a post on her blog looking for someone to do a swap with her – knit her a pair of fingerless gloves as a trade for something she could make for the volunteer. I volunteered! I made these fingerless gloves to help Amy get through the winter.

In return, she made me this Denyse Schmidt Promenade Market Tote!

The back is just as cool as the front.
