Monkey Sock Swap 3
My package got here on Wednesday , and what a brilliant package it is . My pal is Frieda, we have been e-mailing backwards and forwards , and I now have a lovely new friend . Frieda made the knitting bag , isn't it gorgeous , there is already a project for my grand daughter in it ( a knitted rabbit ) . The beanie monkey is lovely , and he is sitting in my egg basket in the kitchen now . The yarn is too lovely for words, socks that rock Silkie ..mmmmm.......The blue yarn is Bearfoot hand painted merino .
Can you see the cutest tape measure ?
There is a pack of playing cards , a book mark with an Oscar Wilde quotation , How did she know I adore Wilde's wit ?The Chocolates didn't make it for the photocall , but they were yummy .
The socks are to die for , Cherry Tree Hill merino in cherry red, they fit perfectly , I have them on now , they are my best Sunday Socks .. W says that they are so professional ( he has NEVER said that about anything I knit ) . The book is actually signed by the Yarn Harlot , and the photo shows her holding one of the socks in progress , everything was beautifully gift wrapped ,I am completely bowled over by Frieda's kindness , generosity and TALENT .
I am sorry that it has been a few days since I got the package , and I know that I should have posted straight away , but W was away and some of you know my inability to hold a camera still . Then on Thursday and Friday we were away getting my ' belated ' birthday present , but I have an idea that it is actually what W wanted , no , I KNOW that it is what W wanted , what woman wants a 35 year old sports car that needs renovation ? I can see that W is going to spend most of his time out in the workshop for the forseable future , oh well , I will just have to amuse myself with my knitting .......... what a hard call that will be LOL
