And look what he brought me!!
More lovely goodies from my secret pal.
A pair of handknitted wrist warmers/mittens, which fit like a glove (LoL) and will be perfect for keeping me snug whilst using the computer (at home and at work). They're done in something nice and soft and silky feeling, I don't know what it is. But I love the colour.
It was so nice to get a handmade gift that I was immediately inspired to use the wool that I'd bought to send to my spoilee to make something for her instead. So now I have a secret project on the needles and I'm having a re-think on Crusoe as I'm not sure if I should soldier on and find they don't fit or give up now and start again (again).
Also in my parcel was a copy of the latest issue of Knitting magazine, which has a couple of patterns in it that I'd like to give a whirl. I've ticked the ones I like but not sure how well it shows up.
Retro, the dress I wouldn't wear as a dress, but shortened I'd like it as a jumper; like the neckline.
Inuit, the slippers would have to be done without the furry bits or the bobbles.
Inca is the childs jumper and it's nice but i don't know anyone with children.
Zest is the green cardigan and I really like that just as is.
She also sent a pair of Brittany birchwood needles which are just gorgeous and lovely and smoooooooth and delicious. If they weren't so pointy I'd want to cuddle them. I've decided that I could quite easily get into using posh needles and here's my lovely secret pal who has sent me not one but TWO pairs . Bless her she is FAB! (I'm using the clover DPNs that she sent me last time on my secret project)
She also sent me a pretty flowery card which is now on top of the telly so I can see it when I look up from my knitting, and all this was beautifully gift wrapped. Thank you so much.
Just hope that I can spoil my spoilee as much as my spoiler spoils me! (betcha can't say that five times really fast!)
