Thoroughly Spoiled....



TWICE in a couple of days... First a Brown Box containing all sorts of goodies from my Angel Yarns Secret Summer Santa - Knitting Nanny. She says I was difficult to shop for but she really did a good job for me - I'm thrilled. The theme was 'The Sea' and everything came wrapped in beautiful blue and silver paper with a load of seashells to add to my collection. Inside the parcels I got... Merino Laceweight in a lovely Baby Blue and a Fiddlesticks Inky-Dinky Spider Stole pattern that I love the look of.
A paua shell bracelet, M&S Organic Chocolate with Rose, A Ball of JamiePossum DK in 'Ocean' and some iridescent beads (these last two came with the suggestion to knit Odessa from Magknits.)
Even the children got presents from KnittingNanny - what a star. It was a lovely ending to a yukky week.
On Monday I got ANOTHER parcel, this time from my SP10 pal and I still have no idea who it is although the return address said London. The box was ginormous and here's what was in it...

On the bottom is a handmade needle case - the outside is a soft chenille and it's padded too. On the top of the inside flap is a Celtic Design that my Pal embroidered herself! Talented or what. Poking out of one of the pockets is a pair of Namaste Glass needles - drools......
Then there's a heart shaped box of fabulous chocolates with no nuts, a scented candle and finally two skeins of Colinette Tao Silk. What a treat - she's a great pal and I'm really itching to find out who she is.
