What better way to brighten a mid-winter's day than a couple of very delightful deliveries.
First came these.
Sent by my friend and her gang, as a thank you for last weekend's 'room & board' for their annual ski weekend. Aren't they beautiful?
And then came this.
Mind you, I do remember having purchased 3 books in the last several months - One Skein Wonders, Custom Fits by Wendy Bernard and now Fitted Knits. And from these books, I have made - in total - a couple of one skein wonders. Period.
Obviously, I buy knitting books for reasons other than using the patterns. Dreaming. Bedtime reading. Coffee table books. Inspiration. Colour study. Whatever the reason, worth every cent.
