Lovely presents

Here are a few pix of some lovely bits for you all to enjoy- I hope! The beautiful "R" fob is my PIF from Carol. I is stunning and I may have to run out some time this week and buy a new pair of scissors to match it. The orange sock is the first of a pair intended for my sister. The yarn is "butterfly" from Opal but I think it looks kind of like a calico cat. My sister is a definite "cat person". Plus she looks good in orange.


The blue socks are my first pair with cables. They took me forever- not just because of the cables , but because I wasn't doing anything- you know the story. And my swift!!!!!! Check it out. My mom sent a huge box with all sorts of lovelies. The swift- which I have been longing for.Also in the box were some blue earrings and a matching necklace, some blue flowered embroidery Ginghers , which I am addicted to.. plus a measuring tape with a Pinochio nose. I am feeling very lucky.

The socks all look great!!
Guess I no longer need to send you those little emails from ebay to notify you of swifts there in europe.
I love the cable socks. Do you find the sock shapes help with the blocking process??

So glad you like it Rachael! Thanks for the email today - I enjoyed it :-) The socks are fantastic! It is nice having you back. Your RR is at the Auburn Post Office, needs to be signed for - my DH will do that tomorrow morning and I will let you know when it is safely here now! Can't wait to see it!

As a non-knitter I looked at the picture of your swift and had no idea what it was and what you did with it, lol! Thank goodness for Google! :D

You were just spoiled with gifts! And your socks are lovely. I also had no idea what a swift was and had to look it up!

You are certainly not only a gifted cross stitcher, but great with those knitting needles.
You received some lovely gifts from your mom including the the PIF from Carol.
