One of the Ravelry groups I enjoy runs a pi/e themed yarn swap and I decided to participate this year because seriously, how awesome is that? The deal was that you had to include yarn or spinning fiber, some edible goodies, a handcrafted item, and other goodies related to pi or pie. Target value was $30-40, which was actually hard shopping in all the yarn crawl stores with their beautiful handpainted, hand-made items! But I managed!


My swapee likes batman, so I made her a project bag which *might* have just been an excuse for me to buy some batman fabrics.


It’s reversible, so here’s the outside and the inside:

I also made some papercraft pie boxes to fit the bag and some tea into. The lemon meringue one is a pattern from the silhouette store, and I modified it to make a blueberry pie one since I was putting blueberry tea inside:

I also made some magnets and a button, and a whole set of pretty stitch markers suitable for even bulky needles, but I didn’t take pictures of those separately.


Here’s two views of the whole package:

It included lovely yarn from Thoroughly Thwacked, a Brittany Crochet hook that my swapee was looking for, and some wooden buttons that I thought looked cool as well as the other things I mentioned. I hope it suited her!


And, since I’m sure you’re all curious, here’s the package I got from my upstream partner:

I see she noticed that I like tea :)


Also, check out the amazing little cherry pi pie charm:

And the hat fits perfectly!
