A lovely parcel arrived today from my secret pal, with lots of lovely things...chocolate, handmade soap, bamboo dpns, sock yarn and an Estonian mitten book! Wow! Thanks Secret Pal - you are the best! And so very prompt! Here are gloating pictures for you all - sorry, but there is absolutely no sun today, so inside pics with flash. The one above of the yarn is somewhat more representative - they aren't very sparkly at all, despite what the last picture tries to tell you.The mitten book is amazing! So many great patterns and ideas...and i could do with some mittens today, let me tell you! So much for spring.
