I’m feeling like quite the lucky one today… Two gifts in two days! People who know me well will know I LOVE presents, both receiving and giving, it’s all good in my mind!
Yesterday my lovely KB bought me a beautiful Rununcula…
Which is brightening up my kitchen no end. It’s cold and dark here now that Winter is just a week away and a lovely injection of bright yellow sunshine is just what I am needing.
The second gift arrived in the post today…
Cue *SQUEE* moment… The lovely Sabine sent me a surprise gift of some sock yarn she dyed. She said that she thought of my monthly mosaics when she saw the way the colours turned out and wanted to send me a gift.
I was so excited to see what these colours were…
*swoon!* A total colour buzz, I am in love with theis skein, thank you sooooooooooooooooo much Sabine! You may remember that I made my third pair of socks from some of Sabine’s hand-dyed yarn I bought from her felt shop. (Felt.co.nz being the New Zealand equivalent of Etsy) I am so excited by this gorgeous yarn and I will be making my June socks with it, from a pattern from this gorgeously gorgeous book which I bought while I was in Wellington.
And her finishing touches are just divine… so coming home to such a lovely gift made the day much more exciting. I love hand-dyed yarn and we are very lucky in New Zealand to have such talented dyers selling their wares.
I’m off to finish a WIP that has been driving me nuts for about 10 weeks… I could not be more excited to be casting off right now, I’ll show you it on the weekend!
Have a great Friday,
love Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
