The Craft Hamper
My uncle always sends our family a hamper of delicious Christmas goodies; I stole the hamper and used it to cart my own delicious goodies around this Christmas. I was very blessed with many lovely crafty gifts and it's so nice to have them all in one place to play with. So much potential in there. Liberty fabric! Rowan Fine Tweed yarn as requested for a project I've had my eye on for a while! Lovely books! It's been cheering me up today looking in there. The back to workness of tomorrow has been playing on my mind and creating a certain gloom but I'll still have the champer to look forward to when I get home. Yippee!
I was very impressed at the amount of unrequested yarn that came my way. I think that it can be quite intimidating buying yarn for a knitter but I'm glad they got on in there. Two yarn/pattern combos were gifted and I've started both straight away to prove how appreciated they were. Hoping some positive reinforcement might provoke similar brave generosity in future!
This little bag just needs blocking and sewing up. My auntie got this whole kit for me complete with sequins and a lining. Purty!
These slipper boots may be the death of me as the Sirdar pattern is a bit of a torture to follow but it did let me knit my first ever bobbles. I'm not sure how it can be that I haven't made them for anything before but they were fun - hopefully I can keep bobbling along.
