Before I get embarassingly out of step with real time (and before I forget, again) here are the crafting goodies that came from under the tree for me...(all but one from my lovely sister)
plus, some very pretty stitch markers, one of which you can see in this little WIP I started up last night...(solo knitting in a pub while waiting for a friend - wasn't I brave though?!)
want to look closer?
I got a red one too. And a blue one. Believe it or not there was a yellow in there as well. Very pleased I am with those.
The WIP is a Le Slouch which I am trying in Rowan Pure Wool Aran in a pretty grey they call cloud. I'm calling it "cloud slouching"...
the two of the tree are kind of cheating as I took them on the same day, just before I went and bought the cloud yarn, looking at them now it's pretty obvious that tree totally influenced my choice of colour...
