>Christmas revisited

>Apart from all the horrible things that have been going on over Christmas we did enjoy ourselves sometimes. DD loved her presents & spent the day dressed in her Goal Keepers outfit. DH has enjoyed his Powerball & Family Guy Xbox game & DVD’s.

I was totally spoilt. Firstly by DH who visited my Amazon wish list & bought me these:

Knitting books
Knitting books from DH

Plus this:

Lorna's Laces
Lorna’s Laces in Berry

DD bought me this with a HUGE hint from me:

Needle Felting book
Fleece Dog

I’ve got some rovings & felting needles from my trip to Wingham Wool Works earlier this year so will be playing soon.

Then I had another box of presents to open from my friend CL in Canada. As I opened the beautifully wrapped gifts I felt like a kid again:

Christmas presents from Canada
Christmas presents from Canada

CL sent me so many things that I couldn’t even get them all in the photo but above you can see:

Yarn – Andean Treasure in lilac, Essential in Petunia, Knit Picks Gloss in Concord Grape & Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe but I’m already playing with that so you can only see half of it. Plus some other Wraps per Inch tool, their own Circular needles & a Canadian / American needle gauge which has already proven useful. Also included were some really cute Christmas ornaments, a tape measure with the Canadian flag on, some maple syrup sweets, Hersey chocolate for DD, candy canes, a Canadian key ring for DH as he was jealous of the other one that CL sent in her last parcel + more.

The yarn is so gorgeous – I can’t convey how delighted I am with it all & the Andean Treasure is going to become a pair of beautifully soft lacey socks. I had sent CL some presents too which included a kilo of Cashmerino Super Chunky in purple, Baby Cashmerino in red, the first Baby Cashmerino book & some English chocolates & biscuits. Thank you so much CL – I really enjoyed choosing your gifts & get the feeling that you did too.
