So much to share, over the last week I have gained some wonderful knitterly things. Firstly on Sunday I got a chance to meet up with Lucy and got my Japanese Stitchionary 🙂
As you can see I couldn’t help myself and cast on a sample for a sock pattern there and then. Lucy also gave Pip and Nor a welcome gift including a toy mouse which dispenses treats, it took Nor about an hour to work it out 🙂
Then there was my swap parcel from the UK swap from the wonderful Mazzam.
All beautifully wrapped and with lots of handmade tags which you can’t see clearly in the pics.
There is a keyring sock bocker kit which I have always wanted and both socks have now been knitted 🙂 Some wonderful Thorntons chocolate roses which as you might have guessed have already been devoured. A fantastic turqouise Denby rabbit which doesn’t really show up in the pic so will try and take a better picture when its not so stormy, a woolly wisdom book and great coaster.
And with the help of Nor, some beautiful sock yarn from Black cat fibres in the most radient turqouise with matching beads with Polly'[s wonderful pattern for Andromeda Socks. She also hand made the matching project bag from Liberty fabric, how lucky am I.
There was another part of the parcel a wonderful book for Pete about a bear and a woolly jumper which when Pete lets me I will share but he is definitely into his books at the moment and this has turned into one of his favourites .
And for the cat lovers amongst you just to keepi t fair here is a pic of Pip making himself comfortable.
