Well, I must say it's harder than I thought to keep the swap secret. First of all, the most common salutation here would be:
Aloha Xmas Swap Partner!
So I have to stop myself every time I go to write to my swap partner.
I think I have also really thrown a wrench in the xmas plans of my upstream partner. Living in Hawaii does make it difficult to find appropriate knitted gifts, afterall....what would I do with a scarf?
It will be fun to learn more about my upstream partners traditions, and I am trying not to give away too many of mine to my downstream partner.
I think the fact that we put up an artificial palm tree with lights and ornaments might just let the cat out of the bag.
Has anyone out there guessed who their upstream partners are? I have absolutely no idea about mine.
