The Postman Always Rings Twice.
Well perhaps he doesn't always ring twice but, he did this week and I have been really spoilt! First the BlueADT sent me this.
She knows me well my favourite colour in sock yarn for my birthday so I am planning what I am going to make with that. I always have good intentions when it comes to socks and I do finish them for other people but it seems that making them for me is a little more of a struggle.
Which is why the second time he rang I got really excited as he brought my rowan exchange gift !! I was beginning to think I had been forgotten but it seems there had been a little confusion over my address. It was definately worth the wait.
Samantha is busy trying to move house but still found time to make me these. Do you recognise them? Yes they are the mockery socks the same ones I started for myself at the knitting in public day. The difference is these are finished and I am wearing them - looking at my feet as I type.
The others are stashed! The other goodies included a kangaroo book mark and chocolate both of which the kids are very interested in. Some beautiful note paper that I think she has made herself. A set of dpns and some gorgeous pink yarn one ball in lace weight and a skein of lovely soft alpaca.And a lovely book of summer knitting projects which I am planning/ drooling over.
I have not only been planning future projects this week but knitting manically and I finished my Lady Sweater.
I really enjoyed/ loved making this it I found the top down construction facinating and although I would have to say it didn't turn out quite as I had anticipated I have had lots of compliments about it and have even inspired another knitter to make one.
