At Christmas, I always receive some knitting gifts as well as giving them. This year I received some wonderful surprises.
My Scouting friend Kathy found this book and immediately thought of me. No Idle Hands by Anne L. Macdonald is about the social history of American knitting. I'm quite interested in learning more. I love it!
My good friend James made me these adorable mini Christmas stockings filled with chocolates from New Zealand. Oops! We ate the chocolate before we could take the picture! Thanks James. He's always so good about getting his gifts in the mail early in December. My gifts are going out this week as New Year's gifts. Sigh.
My friend Julie sent me the Lorna's Laces Sportsmate in the Christmas at Downton Abbey colorway for the Downton Abbey Mystery KAL. This will be my first Mystery KAL and I'm looking forward to it! Thanks Julie!
My final knitting related gift of the year is lot with all the new colors from Knit Picks Palette. Remember how BF bought me the entire palette a few years ago? I just love it and it brightens my Knit Nook and makes me very happy. It's always fun to have all the colors for projects - especially all my mini knits!
Isn't it great? I have the best friends ever. They know me so well. Thank you everyone. Now I have to start knitting! Here's hoping you got some wonderful gifts for knitting, too.
