DSCF5926.JPGThe only thing I don’t mind being woken up first thing in the morning for is the parcel-post-man bringing packages full of treats. Nicolasent me a wonderful and beautifully wrapped box. It was too dark and I was too sleepy to take pictures of the wrapping, but trust me it was delightful. Of course I wasn’t too sleepy to sample the chocolate

I really love that Nicola sent enough yarn for a smallish project. I’m never very sure what to do with single skeins. It’s a beautifully shiny, crisp cotton in a colour that I would have happily picked out for myself. There are more treats half hidden in one of the balls, but I’m trying to be good and play by the rules. I just made up the rule, which is that I can’t unwind the ball, I have to wait until I’m knitting from it to uncover it’s secrets. And yes that is Brittany packaging it’s wound around – a crochet hook. I’ve never used a wooden hook, so I’m looking forward to that, especially as it’s something I might have had trouble justifying buying for myself since I’m not really much of a crocheter. Those are maybe my favourite sorts of gifts – my mum’s tactic of asking if I was willing to shell out for something my self as a way of testing how much I really wanted it was totally off!

Nicola also sent me several recipes for some yummy sounding baking. Perfect ‘warming vegan recipes for Autumn’, I can’t wait to try them out. Thank you for everything Nicola, I love it all!

Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
