Knitty Christmas in June!

I had fun on Friday morning as I recieved a parcel from my Secret Pal!!!

The contents were beautifully wrapped in silver & lilac paper & looked so inviting. I couldn't decide where to start so I chose the card

From which I think I can safely summise that my SP is a cat lover too!

Then I opened a little package containing

blue beads

and some

red beads

Next up was this wonderful arrangement

sock yarn & pattern

Which means that I have to start knitting socks soon - however daunting!

Next I opened this

sock book
sock book


which really reinforces the previous sentiment - I must start socks soon!!

Finally I opened this little package:

citrus soaps
citrus soaps


Which I'm about to use in the bath tonight!

Thank you so much Secret Pal - it was so exciting to open exclusively knitty presents & not know what the parcel contained.

DD has already got her eyes on the beads to use with her Scoobies but has been told no way! Or at least let me learn how to make stitch markers first

What a wonderful package and you can make loads of stitch markers with those beads. They're great fun, here's a couple of sites to refer to if you need a bit of guidance.

Lovely package! Those beads are gorgeous colours and the sock yarn along with book - no excuse for not giving socks a go now.

The soaps look totally indulgent as well - lucky you!
